Pepsi dropped The Call today, an epic “official trailer” for the halftime show directed by Straight Outta Compton filmmaker, F. Gary Gray.

The just under four-minute trailer features Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar answering “the call,” from Dr. Dre, who’s seen moving pieces around a chessboard as his hand-picked version of hip-hop’s Avengers assemble.

According to the official announcement of the show, the five artists have never before appeared together onstage. Among them, they have 43 Grammys and 22 No. 1 albums on the Billboard charts.

The spot rolls through an energetic compilation of iconic tracks from each artist: “Rap God,” “The Next Episode,” “Family Affair,” “HUMBLE.,” “Still D.R.E.” and “California Love,” before it ends with all of them outside the SoFi stadium, where the game will be held next month.

This year’s 12-minute halftime show is sponsored by Pepsi, marking its 11th year supporting the event.

Previous artists featured in the collaboration were the Weeknd in 2021 and Jennifer Lopez and Shakira in 2020. Marking the third year of this collaboration, Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation are excited to bring these genre-defining artists together for a larger-than-life performance of hits from their deep collective catalog.
