Cardi B and Offset will reportedly be bringing their love to screens around the world next month in a Super Bowl commercial.
According to TMZ, the power couple are teaming up with McDonald’s for a TV spot that will air during Super Bowl LVII on February 12.
The ad is said to be Valentine’s Day-themed with the romantic holiday falling just two days after the Big Game. Cardi and Offset’s children won’t make an appearance in the clip, however.
Further details remain scarce, but the commercial was shot with a small crew around Christmas and is expected to “make a splash on game day.”
Super Bowl commercials are some of the most lucrative airtime on American television. Per FOX Business, a 30-second ad during last year’s contest cost companies about $7 million — a new high.
Cardi B is no stranger to the Super Bowl as she previously starred in a Pepsi commercial in 2019, where the world became privy to her “Okurrr” catchphrase.
Offset possibly dropped a subtle hint about his Super Bowl involvement on Monday (January 9) by flexing a massive Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl LVI championship ring on his Instagram Stories while watching his Georgia Bulldogs whoop on the TCU Horned Frogs in the NCAA National Championship.
McDonald’s has been fond of collaborations in the Hip Hop world as they’ve previously worked with Travis Scott, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Saweetie and more.
Kanye West made a cameo in the fast food giant’s Super Bowl ad last year and at one point appeared to be redesigning the company’s packaging alongside Muji designer Naoto Fukasawa.
Cardi B and Offset’s romantic Super Bowl commercial is fitting considering the Migos rapper took the Bronx-bred superstar to Super Bowl LI for what was their first date back in February 2017.
“My first date, I went big,” Offset told Jimmy Kimmel in 2021. “I wanted to do something that was not normally done, you know what I’m saying? I wanted to have fun so I took her to the Super Bowl.”
For Cardi B, the likely hefty bag from McDonald’s will hopefully help offset the spike she’s recently seen in her grocery bill.
“Lettuce was like $2 a couple months ago now it’s like fucking $7, of course, I’m gonna say something,” she complained on Instagram Live last week. “Because if I think that shit is crazy, I could only imagine what middle-class people or people in the hood is motherfuckin’ thinking, so yes I’m going to say something.
“And I have a big platform so I do want anyone that’s responsible for these fucking prices to put that shit the fuck down,” she clapped back at critics. “They gon’ see my shit they might put it down. So shut the fuck up.”
