For his T-Mobile-sponsored spot, October’s Very Own takes us back to the set of his viral sensation “Hotline Bling” music video — only this time, phone company executives have a few suggestions on how to make it better.
“When you say ‘Call me on my cellphone,’ just add, ‘Device eligible for upgrade after 24 months,'” one of them recommends. Drake — cheesy as ever, an ear-to-ear grin nearly jumping off his face — is a trooper about the whole thing. “I love changes!” he says a little too enthusiastically, later adding, “These changes don’t ruin the song at all!”
Meanwhile, Lil Wayne stars in an Apartments.com clip alongside an actor portraying George Washington (really). A few teasers for the commercial highlight their strange relationship and game-day plans. There are grills both for their mouths and BBQing, and at one point, according to a video description, “It’s almost party time and George left on a bun run hours ago. Now Lil Wayne is getting worried.”
Update – Wednesday, February 3rd at 4:05 p.m. CT: Apartments.com has shared one of its full Super Bowl ads featuring Lil Wayne and actor Jeff Goldblum.
