Funnyman Affion Crockett Channels Jay-Z in Rocawear Ad
Comedian Affion Crockett is known for his hilarious mimicries of such artists as Chris Brown and Lil Wayne, so in a new video for Rocawear’s new campaign, ‘That’s Rocawear,’ the funnyman brilliantly imitates the apparel company’s honcho, Jay-Z.
In the video, Hov, er, we mean Crockett, parodies Jay-Z’s ‘D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)’ and calls it ‘D.O.C. (Death to Other Clothes).’ Crockett comically raps, “This is anti-other clothes / Death to your wardrobe / This ain’t for linen pants / This ain’t for plush robes / This Young Carter at the opera, fitteds on / I get thug in ya church with my denims on.”
Crockett then segues into a send-up of French hip-hop dance duo Les Twins’ own Rocawear commercial performing goofy dance moves like the Wop and the Electric Boogaloo to Jay-Z’s menacing track ‘Venus vs. Mars.’
You can catch Crockett imitating other celebs on his own Jamie Foxx-produced Fox sketch comedy show, ‘In the Flow With Affion Crockett,’ which airs Sundays at 9PM ET.
