What does Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale (Aria) have in common with a 6’1” NFL linebacker on the San Francisco 49ers? Surprisingly, a lot!

Lucy teamed up with football player Patrick Willis to create awareness for Duracell’s Trust Your Power program. The superstar athlete recently created a moving ad for Duracell’s new campaign, in which he describes his tragic childhood, and had to trust the power inside him to become the football star he is today.

In a Skype conversation, Lucy and Patrick chat about the program, which donates $1 to underprivileged youth programs, and plans to help kids from impoverished neighborhoods attend Patrick’s Football ProCamp.

It turns out that both Lucy and Patrick are from Memphis, Tennessee, and they’re both huge country music fans. The only awkward moment came when Lucy asked Patrick if he’d ever seen PLL.

“I can’t say that I’ve sat down and watched it, I think I’ve caught a glimpse,” he says. So Lucy proposes a deal: If Patrick watches an episode of PLL, she’ll come to one of his games and cheer him on.

“That’s a heck of a deal,” he says. Support Duracell’s Trust Your Power program here, and watch the adorable video below!
