Rapper and reality TV star Waka Flocka Flame made a huge splash during last night’s telecast of the American Music Awards … and he wasn’t even at the show.
Instead the “No Hands” rapper was the star of a bizarre commercial for Pine Bros. throat lozenges. The ad began with Waka sitting on the couch in a cloud of smoke. “What does a Waka Flocka Flame do for minor sore throat relief?” he says. “This here” as he holds up the package of lozenges while lush piano music plays in the background.
Waka then highlights the ingredients of the lozenges before making a face in regard to the cloud of smoke to suggest that we the viewers know that it isn’t cigarette smoke.
Needless to say, the humorous clip went over well with viewers, even garnering some traction as a brief trending topic on Twitter.
If it was the perfect follow-up to Waka’s popular “Funny or Die” video in which the rapper sought an assistant specifically to roll his blunts.
