The two actors prepare for battle in a teaser for the joint Mountain Dew-Doritos promo.

In a savvy business move, Mountain Dew and Doritos have teamed up for their Super Bowl commercial, and they've called in two actors to help out.

Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman star in a 15-second teaser for the upcoming commercial, set to air Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 4) on NBC. The two seem to be prepping for some sort of battle — with Freeman on the Mountain Dew Ice side and Dinklage on the Doritos Blaze side — as they face each other in a dark room, silent except for the sound of a chopped-and-screwed Missy Elliott song.

And while the collaboration is notably creative, these sorts of celebrity appearances are certainly not anything new. During last year's Super Bowl, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga all starred in separate ads.

Check out the teaser for the upcoming Mountain Dew vs. Doritos commercial, below.
