Nelly, the platinum selling rapper who blew up in the early 2000s with hits like “Country Grammer” is going to be known by your children for something else…teaching the Honey Nut Cheerios bee mascot how to have “swag.” In a new commercial for the popular cereal brand, Nelly stars in the clip with a computer generated bee, gives him some “swag,” and teaches him how to use auto-tune.
Nope, this certainly can’t be the same man from the “Tip Drill” video. Shoot, I was beginning to like that “Get Like Me” song too, but hey, that’s probably because of Pharrell and his ability to make a hit.
But on the real, I think we finally have a commercial that tops Mary J. Blige‘s Burger King ad in corniness. Oh you forgot about that? Refresher after the break.
