Prince is a funny guy. Who knew?

The Purple One gave a comedic cameo-appearance in the special post-Super Bowl episode of “New Girl.”

Prince, who plays himself and is a confirmed fan of the Fox sitcom, dished out relationship advice to its stars Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick (Jake Johnson).

Prince's turn as a relationship guru wasn’t just a vanity project; he used the platform of the show to debut a new song, "PretzelBodyLogic."

The track is expected to appear on Prince's upcoming album, "Plectrum Electrum," which is due to arrive at some stage in 2014.

The Super Bowl is typically the most-watched U.S. television event of the year, so the shows which follow directly afterwards enjoy serious prime-time action.

Prince is no stranger to the circus that is the Super Bowl. He provided the half-time entertainment back in 2007.
