Move over, Kate Upton! Mariah Carey is the new star of the ‘Game of War’ promos, and she slays in the new commercial — literally! If you thought belting high notes was Mariah’s only talent, watch her shoot a dragon with a crossbow here and be amazed!
A new hero has come along — Mariah Carey! The 45-year-old singer is the face of the new ad for mobile app Game of War: Fire Age, replacing Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton, 23. Not only does Mariah have the voice of an angel, but she also has killer combat skills, and she’s as sexy and fierce as ever in the new promo for the medieval fantasy game.
The promo, accurately set to Mariah’s 1993 smash hit “Hero,” starts off with a brutal combat scene. A doomed warrior claims “this is the end,” but then his fellow fighter pulls out his smartphone to call for the help of a hero. Before you know it, a hero does come along — Mariah! Just when we think it’s the end of things with a giant, fire-breathing dragon ready to attack, Mimi slays it in midair. Obvi, everyone is stunned, and that’s when Mariah fiercely says, “Time to be heroes, guys.” This, plus her fabulous song in the ad, is what makes it fantastic.
Kate’s Game of War ad was played during the Super Bowl, and was only 30 seconds long while Mariah’s is a full minute. HollywoodLife.com previously reported that the mother of two was offered a seven figure deal to be the new face of the app, which would feature her music. Mariah will reportedly do a few other promotional shoots for the game. We can’t wait!
