The teaser for Lil Wayne’s Apartments.com Super Bowl commercial dropped on Jan. 28, and it’s the weirdest one we’ve seen yet! The rapper, George Washington, and something called a “bun run”? What’s going on?! Check out the full ad that explains it all, here.
The Apartments.com Super Bowl commercial teaser may have been the most confusing yet! Lil Wayne, 33, makes an appearance with a great American hero, and buns are involved. Now that the full commercial is out, everything is explained! Check it out right here and let us know what you think.
The Super Bowl commercials have started rolling in, and it’s sure getting us pumped for the big game on Feb. 7. Lil Wayne’s is the newest, and it sure is weird. We had no idea what’s going on in the new Apartments.com ad teaser, but we thought we liked it. On Feb. 2 the full commercial was released and it’s hilarious!
The teaser begans with George Washington himself ringing the bell of Lil Wayne’s swaggy apartment. We know the two are bros, because he has his very own classical (appropriate) ringtone on Wayne’s phone. Wayne picks up and asks him “you got the buns?” to which he responds “I got the buns”… while stuffing a hamburger bun in his mouth. It appears that he’s holding four buns, two in each hand, as he enters the building. The words “Change the World” and “#MovingOnUp” appear on screen as he goes inside.
When the full commercial begins, we were wondering when all of that would be explained. Silicon Valley maverick Brad Bellflower (Jeff Goldblum) climbs on a piano behind hauled upthe side of a building while a gospel choir carries his boxes of belongings up the stairs, singing “Movin’ On Up.” We get to see some ballin’ apartments, gorgeous dining rooms and amazing show closets, but nothing beats what’s at the top: Lil Wayne and George Washington grilling burgers n’ beans on the coolest balcony EVER! You’ve gotta check it out and be super jealous.
The YouTube description of the teaser video said “It’s almost party time and George left on a bun run hours ago. Now Lil’ Wayne is getting worried.” Welp, now we know why he needed buns in the first place! They were planning for an amazing Super Bowl party. Thank goodness we got that figured out.
