Nine Inch NailsAtticus Ross is having a big day. In addition being among the Golden Globe nominees unveiled Wednesday, today also bring the news that Ross is scoring a Super Bowl commercial.

The ad is for the beer company Anheuser-Busch, which produces brands including Budweiser and Michelob. It’s described as Anheuser-Busch’s “first-ever company Super Bowl commercial.”

In the clip, we see footage of friends celebrating with and cheering up each other by sharing a beer together — you know, back when we could do that in person.

“When we say ‘Let’s grab a beer,’ it’s never just about the beer,” reads a description for the ad. “It’s always about life’s most meaningful moments — big and small — that happen when we come together over a beer.”

You can watch the commercial, which was produced by filmmaker David Fincher, now on YouTube ahead of its TV debut on Super Bowl Sunday.

Ross and his band mate Trent Reznor are nominated in the Golden Globes’ Best Original Score — Motion Picture category for their scores of the Fincher movie Mank and the Disney/Pixar film Soul. The duo previously won a Golden Globe for their The Social Network score.
