Peter Dinklage vs. Morgan Freeman: a Super Bowl rap battle

Super Bowl ads are getting heated with their celebrity guests - especially when they’re battling.

Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage is surrounded by flames, but they're not being spewed by dragons. Dinklage himself brings the heat in his lip-synced commercial for Doritos that runs headlong into Morgan Freeman’s ice-cold Mountain Dew commercial. The ensuing rap collision (featuring the lyrical stylings of Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott) see the two work their fiery devil and frigid angel routines towards the camera.

“Look at Me Now” and “Get Ur Freak On” are some stellar picks for the two killer actors to flaunt their stuff, with Dinklage going more for a seductive take while Freeman relies purely on the gravitas that got him through Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy - and, of course, the sheer absurdity of the juxtaposition.
