Akon Brings Truth to Michael Jackson’s Rumored Super Bowl Commercial

R&B singer Akon has quietly dropped information about the rumored Michael Jackson commercial that will run during this years Super Bowl. “We just did a commercial — it’s a Pepsi commercial. He actually involved me in it so I feel like I’m a part of that process,” Akon told The Associated Press. Jackson is releasing a 25th anniversary edition of his best-selling album “Thriller” on Feb. 12, featuring big name acts like Akon, Kanye West and Fergie on remix editions of some of his most popular songs. “It’s really more so Mike picking a lot of the acts that he liked and admired today, and kind of getting them the big songs that they like and reinventing it like it was their own,” says Akon. “Everyone has their own taste of how that would have been.” It’s been reported that an ad for the CD will be featured during the Super Bowl. But while Akon did confirm a commercial does exist, he was negligent when asked how to describe it. “Oh, he might kill me,” Akon laughed about Jackson. “But it’s gonna be funny. You’re going to love it. He’s not even in it. But it’s crazy. I want to tell you so bad!”
