"I can't say too much about who I'm coaching, but I think it's going to be a very exciting reveal," Rae tells PEOPLE of the candy brand's big game ad
Need dance lessons? Addison Rae is at your service.
The pop star, actress and social media personality appears in the teaser for Nerds' upcoming Super Bowl commercial, PEOPLE can reveal exclusively. In it, Rae coaches a mystery student — and the ultimate star of the game-day commercial — on dance moves for a performance set to Irene Cara's 1983 hit "What a Feeling."
The Thanksgiving star plays a vinyl record of the classic pop song and shows off her dancing skills, tossing her hair and hitting the splits as she works hard to help the unseen student.
"This might work," says Rae, 24, expressing faith in her trainee as she snacks on a bag of Nerds Gummy Clusters at the end of the video.
"I can't say too much about who I'm coaching, but I think it's going to be a very exciting reveal," she tells PEOPLE. "Obviously, I had to work very hard to coach it, so we'll see how the star does on the final performance."
Working with the student wasn't easy. Throughout the teaser, Rae reminds the dancer-in-training to "smile" and describes their efforts as "cute" before she's satisfied by the end.
"It took some work," quips Rae. "Technique is very important to me."
Nerds' upcoming Super Bowl commercial marks the brand's first to air during the big game. It will spotlight Nerds Gummy Clusters, which feature the classic tart, crunchy candy wrapped around a sweet, chewy center.

"I've always been a huge fan of Nerds in general since I was a little girl. I remember going to the candy shop, and I would just love to get the little boxes, and they were just so cute," recalls Rae.
The "I Got It Bad" singer's love for the candy brand has only grown as she's become acquainted with Nerds Gummy Clusters.
"I'm a big fan of combining textures in something I eat, and this has the crunchy and the gummy, and I'm obsessed. I literally ate bags on set," she says. "Everyone was like, 'You should probably slow down because you're going to have to eat a lot of these.' And I'm like, 'I'm just making sure I'm prepared.'"
Viewers should stay tuned, as the mystery dancer's identity will be revealed when Nerds' Super Bowl commercial premieres in the coming weeks. The full spot will air during the big game on Feb. 11.
