Watch Jason Momoa Hit the High Notes With Zach Braff & Donald Faison in ‘Flashdance’-Inspired T-Mobile Super Bowl Commercial

What a feeling to have good WiFi! Zach Braff and Donald Faison have teamed up with T-Mobile for yet another musical Super Bowl commercial, this time putting their own spin on Irene Cara‘s “Flashdance… What a Feeling,” from the 1983 film Flashdance.

In the clip, the duo knock on the door of none other than fellow actor Jason Momoa, who informs them that his Super Bowl party is canceled due to cable Internet issues.

“First I had cable but those cords weren’t me/ I needed to find new WiFi,” Braff sings to the tune of the ’80s classic, before Faison takes over: “So I switched to T-Mobile/ Home Internet with 5G/ It runs on their network/ Just plug it in and you’ll see.”

The Aquaman star then joins the duo for the high-energy chorus, belting with an impressive vocal run during the lyrics, “I need home Internet/ From T-Mobile to fulfill my life,” before performing the iconic Flashdance wet chair scene.

The real surprise comes at the end of the ad, when Flashdance star Jennifer Beals appears, telling Momoa specifically to do the entire number again with his shirt off. “You guys are fine,” she jokingly dismisses Braff and Faison.

Cara’s “Flashdance…What a Feeling” spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983, timed to the success of the film, which was the third-highest-grossing film of that year at the U.S. box office.

Billboard also snagged an exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Faison and Braff having an absolute blast recording the song with Momoa in the studio. Check it out below, and catch the T-Mobile Home Internet commercial when it airs during Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday (Feb. 4), with kick-off at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.

Last year, we had similar behind-the-scenes footage of Braff and Faison recording new lyrics to “Summer Nights” from Grease for their musical T-Mobile Super Bowl commercial with John Travolta.
