Ludacris stars in Atlanta hype video for Super Bowl LIII

In just under a year from now, Atlanta’s billion-dollar Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host Super Bowl LIII. 

To get everyone in the mood for the city’s first Super Bowl since 2000, the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee released a hype video featuring rapper and Atlanta-native Ludacris. 

In the video, Ludacris introduces Atlanta as the next Super Bowl site, then turns it over to several Atlanta natives who describe their city. Ludacris then finished the video saying, “It’s our turn ATL, and we are on the clock. Welcome to Atlanta. We are Super Bowl 53.”

If the Falcons play in Super Bowl LIII, they will become the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl in their home stadium.
