LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning British actress Helen Mirren will appear in new Super Bowl ad berating drunk drivers in a charming English way.

The ad, technically for Budweiser's #GiveADamn campaign, is a simple one: The actress is sitting at her dinner table and her beer arrives. She then engages the camera and begins to tear into anyone who is still thinks they can drive while under the influence of alcohol.

Calling drunk drivers "utterly useless" and a "human form of pollution" among other things. She continues the tongue lashing before telling drunk drivers to just "stop it."

The 70-year-old star closes with "this is supposed to be fun," as she sits back and takes a swig.

It's the first time the beer company has run an anti-drunk driving spot during the Super Bowl since 2005, when Cedric the Entertainer did a designated driver dance.

Budweiser is donating $1-- up to a maximum of $1 million -- to a safe ride program every time the #GiveADamn hashtag is used this week.
