"Game day's gonna get nutty," the teaser exclaims in reference to the commercial which will air during Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3.

"I'm so excited and thrilled to be a part of this," Rodriguez told People magazine. "It's really a dream come true. I've never been in a Super Bowl ad, and I sort of dreamed about it, but I never dreamed this high."

"Knowing you'll have 100-plus million people watching will be pretty intense," he continued before referencing his daughters Ella, 10, and Natasha, 14. "And I think you can guarantee my daughters will be teasing Daddy. This one has a lot to tease me about."

Los Angeles Rams will take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII. Gladys Knight is set to sing the national anthem while Maroon 5 will headline the Halftime Show.
