Bob Dylan to appear in Pepsi advert with Will.i.am

The advert is set to air during this weekend's Super Bowl (February 1)

Bob Dylan and Will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas will appear together in an advert for Pepsi this weekend (February 1).

The unlikely duo worked together on a “mash-up” of Dylan‘s 1974 classic ‘Forever Young’, which will be aired during advert breaks at this Sunday’s Super Bowl .

The drinks company is reported to be considering selling the new version of the song on iTunes.

Pepsi is understood to have bought two minutes of airtime during the broadcast, reports the Guardian.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Dylan’s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ is to be used in a forthcoming TV advertising campaign in the UK by The Co-op.
