But it’s not the “Die Hard” you’d expect.

Instead, the teaser was for a new promotion for DieHard car batteries at Advance Auto and a new two-minute “movie" that shows Willis' McClane looking to replace his car’s battery against all odds, Deadline reported.

Willis was joined in the clip by DeVoreaux Sefas White, who was Argyle, the limo driver, in the original “Die Hard” movie.

The spot premiered during the Green Bay versus Tampa Bay game Sunday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
