Watch Nicki Minaj’s New Pepsi Commercial
Nicki Minaj goes pop indeed — soda pop, that is — in her new Pepsi ad.
The clip, set to a remix of Minaj’s hit ‘Moment for Life,’ opens with a cute brunette couple popping open some cans of — what else? — Pepsi. The song choice was a deliberate one, because as soon as they start sipping, time stops. The duo takes advantage of this and goes on a global adventure.
After strolling through the streets, they hit the beach to see if it’s still, well, still. It is. They’re beginning to both enjoy and get the hang of this. They each take another sip and then take photos with the frozen athletes playing soccer on the sand, then hit the road again.
Next the couple are making their way through a food fight, and even in frozen time they can’t help but get covered in tomato. They have fun with it, though, and bring some of their new (literal) sauciness with them to a fashion show in Tokyo, where they strut their stuff on a time-stopped runway — with a cameo from bubbly fashion designer Betsey Johnson.
At the end of the runway is an exit. The duo make a run for it and end up, finally, at a Nicki Minaj concert, onstage with the Harajuku Barbie herself. They each take another can of Pepsi, pop ’em and take a sip. This makes time begin again, and Minaj and the crowd are having a ball. After some dancing and knowing glances, the couple takes a stage dive and sets the world back in motion. Sounds like a poppin’ night to us.
