Singer John Legend is playing a trickster in Capri Sun’s latest campaign to help the brand promote its line of all-natural drinks with no added sugar.

In the ad, a pair of siblings convince the crooner to surprise their mom at her yoga class so they can feed him lines to say to her via an earpiece. The mom is unsurprisingly bewildered when Legend begins to say things “kids shouldn't have to take piano lessons” and “bedtimes are stupid” between yoga poses.

At the end of the spot, the kids ask Legend to tell their mom about Capri Sun’s updated drinks before ultimately revealing themselves as the ones behind the prank.
