John Cena stars in epic Super Bowl spot that gives fans the chance to win one million dollars.

/PRNewswire/ – Mtn Dew® will showcase new Mtn Dew Major Melon and Mtn Dew Major Melon Zero Sugar – the beverage brand’s first permanent flavor offering in more than a decade – in a thirty second in-game advertisement during Super Bowl LV on February 7. The television commercial is part of a 360-degree marketing campaign that takes everything to the extreme with a DEW® twist – highlighted by the opportunity for one lucky fan to cash in on a life changing prize of $1 million dollars by counting the correct number of bottles appearing in the spot. The ad features WWE Superstar and actor John Cena who will bring the larger than life flavor to fans nationwide.

“This year, we’re bringing our newest flavor, Major Melon, to the Super Bowl and we’re pushing creative boundaries in a way that puts fans at the core of the concept,” says Nicole Portwood, vice president, marketing, Mtn Dew. “We’re excited about our partnership with the one-and-only John Cena to show the world how Mtn Dew Major Melon takes flavor to the extreme.”

The commercial, which will air during the first half of the big game, takes fans to the extreme – as Mtn Dew introduces the wacky world of Major Melon featuring hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of Mtn Dew Major Melon bottles. Fans will have to watch the commercial closely – or maybe even multiple times – for a chance to win big, because the first person* to correctly count and Tweet the exact number of Mtn Dew Major Melon bottles in the ad could win $1 million dollars.

“I’ve been a DEW drinker for many years, so I was beyond excited to get the call to be a part of the Mtn Dew Major Melon Super Bowl commercial,” says John Cena, actor, WWE Superstar and television host. “Commercials play an important role during the big game and I have a feeling fans are going to go nuts for this one. The Mtn Dew Major Melon commercial is truly a life changing opportunity for one lucky fan.”

Fans can tune in during the big game to watch the premiere of the Major Melon commercial and will have three attempts to give counting Major Melon bottles their best shot. Who knows, they could become a millionaire*!
