Car service company Uber has teamed up with Pepsi to bring Super Bowl “half-time shows” to the streets of Manhattan.

The free shows appear as an icon on the Uber app and users can request them between 11 AM and 5 PM. When a user requests a show, a 12-person team composed of a band and cheerleaders arrive by bus to put on a four-minute show.

The campaign kicks off Tuesday, January 28th, and users have until 5 PM on Wednesday to request a free show. Shows are only available in Manhattan, south of 57th street.
