Today in totally bizarre news…
Rapper Waka Flocka is now a bonafide commercial actor.
For the first time, the Love & Hip Hop star appears in a 30-second commercial for Pine Bros. cough drops.
“What does a Waka Flocka Flame do for minor sore throat relief?” the rapper asks before holding up a package of the cough drops.
“This here, Pine Bros. softish throat drops. Can’t live without my Pine Bros., straight up.”
Towards the end of the commercial, Waka Flocka glances down at the smoke that is flowing up next to him — allegedly a marijuana innuendo — and reveals that Pine Bros. throat drops can be used to relieve coughs “no matter what the reason” for them.
Well played, Waka Flocka!
