The smash hit show Empire is teaming up with Pepsi to make a commercial that will appear within the show as well as run on its own.
The new face of Pepsi--Jamal Lyon, aka Jussie Smollett-- is featured singing the up-tempo “Ready To Go.”
Empire show creator Lee Daniel is also getting in on all the Pepsi buzz. He’s directing both the Empire and real-life commercials.
