Yes, you read that headline correctly. The actor sometimes known as ‘God’ and Tyrion Lannister himself are set to go head-to-head in a rap battle.
It’s down to take place during the upcoming Super Bowl LII (that’s 52 if you don’t do Roman numerals) on February 4, as a promotion for what are apparently gamers’ choice ingestibles, Doritos and Mountain Dew.
As it’s 2018, we now get ads for forthcoming ads, and if they were all this cool we wouldn’t mind. Missy Elliott coaches Mr Freeman and Busta Rhymes trains Peter Dinklage, all in the name of getting their tongues ready to rap.
We’re not sure whether Mr Freeman did it for fun or for an astronomical pay cheque, but this tease has us more interested in the rap battle than all of that gridiron stuff. Go Patriots? Go Eagles? Whatever!
