Jamie Foxx Impersonates Future in Verizon Commercial
Game 7 of the NBA Finals lived up to its hype as one of the best professional basketball games ever. But the on-court action wasn't the only source of excitement, as the commercials were nearly as entertaining. One of the best ads was a hilarious Verizon spot featuring Jamie Foxx doing his best Future impersonation.
During the 30-second commercial, Foxx plays a character named "Past," aka Future's father. Wearing a fake beard and dreads, Foxx claims to have "taught the boy everything" before spitting a quick few Verizon bars (no pun intended). Past kills his mini-verse, rapping, "I got Verizon/See me on the street, you walk up to me, you got AT&T, we fightin/We the provider/'Cuz when you start dialin'/You runnin outside, you stand in the street, you scream like 'I got Verizon'!"
It's clearly a "Fuck Up Some Commas" parody, as the instrumental sounds nearly identical to the Southside and DJ Spinz-produced banger. At the end of the clip, Past introduces a new slogan for the phone company: "It ain't about can you hear me now, it's about can you see me now."
For another dope hip-hop related commercial, check out this hilarious DJ Khaled ad for Apple Music. In other Future news, it was recently announced that the Atlanta artist will perform at the upcoming BET Awards alongside acts such as Bryson Tiller and Usher.
