Behind the scenes of Michael Bublé's ad shoot for Bubly.

Four-time Grammy Award-winning singer Michael Bublé wants you to know that Pepsi’s sparkling water brand is named after him — even though it’s not. February 3 marks the release of Bubly’s first-ever Super Bowl ad, titled “Can I have a Bublé?” Bubly and Bublé, get it?

What the World’s Most Famous People Drink Every Night

Prior to game day, the company released a 15-second teaser featuring the Canadian-born performer, who can be seen sitting on the floor in front of drink coolers properly rebranding Bubly cans with a Sharpie so that they’ll read “bublé.” Of the eight colorful cans featured in the spot, four —   blackberry, cranberry, raspberry and peach — are brand-new flavors.

“I might be Canadian, but I’m a big fan of American football,” Bublé said in a statement. “I had a blast doing my very first Super Bowl commercial with bublé – I mean bubly. Because of our similar names, the brand and I share a special bond. I love how the cans are bold, bright, and full of personality. They’re perfect for any Super Bowl viewing partés you might be having.”
