Missionary Jack puts his acting chops to the test in the big game clip unveiled in full on Wednesday (February 8). At first, Harlow struggles to find motivation in the studio until he stumbles upon the triangle, which is the same shape as a Doritos chip.
“It’s just not right,” he says in the clip. “Nah, I need to find something new.”
The 24-year-old sends the crowd into a frenzy when he shows off his unlikely triangle skills, but backstage Missy Elliott is questioning the move. “You gonna quit rap for a triangle,” Missy asks in disgust.
“I gotta do me, Missy,” Harlow states with Anita Ward’s “Ring My Bell” booming in the background.
The triangle craze sweeps the nation with radio legend Sway Calloway making a cameo but it all comes to a screeching halt for Harlow when he loses out on Triangle Player of the Year honors to Elton John to close the Super Bowl commercial.
Look for the entire Doritos ad to air on FOX on February 12 during Super Bowl LVII, which will be held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Jack Harlow’s acting skills will also be put to the test in the upcoming White Men Can’t Jump reboot, which is set to land on Hulu on May 19.
A trailer arrived over the weekend showing the very first look at Harlow and his co-star Sinqua Walls in character.
The 30-second teaser doesn’t reveal too much, but it looks like the Calmatic-directed flick follows the same storyline as the original 1992 film about a pair of basketball hustlers who team up to make themselves some extra cash.
The name of Harlow’s character has yet to be revealed, but it looks like the “First Class” hitmaker takes on a similar role to Billy Hoyle in the original, who was played by Woody Harrelson.
