On The Ellen Degeneres Show on Thursday, the dancing-prone host revealed that she's starring in a Beats Music commercial set to debut during the Super Bowl. Then, moments later, she debuted the thing herself, saying, "I had so much fun shooting the commercial and you're really not supposed to see it before the Super Bowl, but it's my birthday and it's my show so I get to do what I want." Which is also a theme of the clip, which can be seen above.

In the Goldilocks-inspired ad, DeGeneres is on the hunt for the perfect playlist. Papa's choice is too heavy (Black Sabbath's "Paranoid") and Mama's selection is too country (Brandy Clark's "Stripes"). Meanwhile, the teenager is an EDM fan — enter Dillon Francis' "I.D.G.A.F.O.S.," which inspired Ellen to bust out a few moves. We won't spoil the ending, but it turns out that Aloe Blacc's "Can You Do This" is juuuuuust right. We picked apart Beats Music here.
