For the fourth year, the Pepsi beverage company is going to be returning to the Super Bowl as one of the half-time sponsors. A couple of weeks ago, the company launched a new series of online videos called “Camp Halftime” that features weekly clips of actor and comedian Donald Faison who is shown teaching counselors about how to create a halftime show perfectly. These videos were created in partnership with The Kicker–Above Average’s sports comedy site and they are being released every Wednesday leading up to the big game on both YouTube and Pepsi.com as well.
The New York City comedian has been in several media works, but is best known for his role as Dr. Chris Turk in ABC’s hit comedy-drama show Scrubs. Before hitting the hospital wing of the set, Faison has smaller roles in shows such as Sesame Street, New York Undercover, Clueless, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch. In addition to that, he was in a few full length films too such as Disney’s Remember the Titans, Glory, Juice, Waiting to Exhale and New Jersey Drive. In both 2002 and 2004, Faison won BET’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series awards and was nominated several times for the Teens Choice Awards under the category of Choice TV Sidekick. These days he is working on a few additional projects and raising the six kids that he has at home.
