Drake Super Bowl Commercial: T-Mobile Tries To Stop Competitors From Ruining ‘Hotline Bling’ (VIDEO)
Drake stars in T-Mobile’s Super Bowl 50 commercial, which centers around a group of cellphone executives from a competing wireless network, whose suggestions for “Hotline Bling” almost “ruin” the song. Watch the funny video below!
The 30-second spot takes place during the filming of the music video for “Hotline Bling,” and has a group of executives giving Drake notes on how to change his song. “I love changes,” he says sarcastically. One of them suggests, “When you say, ‘Call me on my cell phone,’ just say, ‘Device eligible for upgrade after 24 months,'” to which the rapper responds, “Genius!”
Another suit adds, “Also, you need to include that streaming music will incur data charges,” to which Drake mockingly replies, “Fantastic idea! These changes don’t ruin the song at all.” A voiceover then explains, “Other wireless carriers ruin everything. Switch to T-Mobile, the un-carrier.”
As Gossip Cop reported, Drake isn’t the only celebrity to have fun with his image in a Super Bowl ad. Ryan Reynolds appears in a Hyundai commercial that takes place in a neighborhood called “Ryanville,” where every citizen looks exactly like Reynolds. The actor, of course, plays all the various townspeople.
Drake’s T-Mobile ad will play at some point during Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, but you can watch it below right now!
