In the midst of last night's NBA Finals, a commercial came on that quickly became a trending topic on Twitter thanks to the sheer foolery of it all. The star of the Verizon ad was Jamie Foxx who didn't look anything like himself, rocking a grey dreadloc wig, white mustache and goatee, hobbling around with a cane and draped in a polyester leisure suit and gold chains. The actor/comedian/singer was dressed up as the character Past to perform the song "I Got Verizon," a play on Future's "F**k Up Some Commas." Like we said, it was sheer foolery.
In the Stacy Wall-directed spot, Foxx starts off rapping, “They call me the Past, my son is Future. I taught that boy everything,” and it only got more ridiculous from there as he dabbed and danced like the old man in the club for a good 30 seconds while shading AT&T. OK, Verizon, shots fired. How about y'all come down on these calling plans, though?
Game 7 of this year's NBA Finals was one for the record books. At the end of the night, the Cleveland Cavaliers pulled out a win against the Golden State Warriors to clinch their first championship. Clap it up for LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and the rest of the squad while you laugh it up at Jamie Foxx's antics.
