OMG! Justin Bieber's playing in the Super Bowl! Where do we get tickets? Oh, wait -- Justin Bieber made a commercial that will run during Super Bowl XLV, and anyone with a TV can catch the madness with the Biebs and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne next month? Still, OMG!

Bieber's Ozzy-and-Sharon adventure was filmed in mid-January in L.A., according to Best Buy, the bankroll behind the "edvertizment," with the beans spilled by the Biebs on Twitter this week.

"Me and OZZY did a pretty funny commercial," the teen dream said, adding the hash tag "#ugottajustlaughatyourself."

"We know people have high expectations for these ads" -- gee, ya think? -- "and Justin and Ozzy add a whole new dimension of fun," said an exec for Best Buy, in a statement that promised humor and creativity as well.

Color us giddy. After all, "Crazy Train" is one of the best driving songs ever. Plus, yeah, Bieber. Christina Aguilera will sing the national anthem, and the Black Eyed Peas (remember them?) will perform at halftime. We hear rumors football will also be involved.

Young ladies, for your parents' sake and the sake of delicate flat-screens nationwide, please do not crush up against the TV during the game, 'K? Same for you Sabbath fans.
