Along with ads for beer, trucks and fast food, Super Bowl 2020 viewers will catch a spot for Facebook. The social network confirmed that it's running the ad, and that the ad will promote the Facebook Groups feature, after a report late Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal.

The Journal also reported that the ad will feature Chris Rock and Sylvester Stallone. Facebook didn't comment on who would be in the spot.

This will be Facebook's first purchase of Super Bowl air time, the company confirmed.

In recent months, the tech giant has been running ads for its Facebook Portal device, featuring the Muppets. It'll be far from the first tech company to get in on Super Bowl promotions. In the past, companies like Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and Sprint have had Super Bowl spots. And during the dot-com era, 2000's Super Bowl was packed with ads for websites. 

The Super Bowl will air Feb. 2.
