*Pepsi, the sponsor of this year’s Super Bowl halftime show, recruited Donald Faison for a series of videos to promote the big concert featuring Coldplay and Beyonce.
Titled “Camp Halftime,” the four-part comedic series aims to prepare fans for the live performances. In the first installment, which premiered Wednesday (Jan. 13), the actor coaches and a young dancer through her performance — and tries to distract her with the obstacles associated with a halftime performance, such as Chris Martin’s helicopter needing to land on the grass and the game restarting before the halftime show is even over.
“When Pepsi said you’re going to be doing a halftime show thing, I thought I’d have on, like, football pads or introduce something. Like, play football or something like that — I had no idea I was going to be a choreographer,” the 41-year-old tells Us Weekly. “It’s fine, though, because I do know how to shake my ass; I know how to shake my tail feather.”

The Super Bowl halftime show, featuring Coldplay and Beyoncé, is on CBS February 7 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
