Drake Snags Time Warner Cable Super Bowl Commercial


Camille Augustin / January 11, 2014

Earlier this week, it was reported that Drake would headline Revolt TV and Time Warner Cable’s pre-Super Bowl extravaganza (Feb. 1), and now VIBE’s cover star has signed on to star in the cable provider’s commercial airing during Super Bowl XLVIII, Billboard reports.

“He’s not just a phenomenal performer, but a phenomenal actor,” Jeffrey Hirsch, TWC’s executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer said in an interview with Billboard. “I got to watch him at the shoot, and he can really act. He’s gonna be even bigger for many years to come.”

Hirsch didn’t reveal any details as to what exactly Drake will be portraying in the ad, but millions of viewers will be watching since commercials thrive during one of the nation’s biggest sporting events.

“The Language” rapper also capped his 2013 by signing a deal with the Air Jordan brand, posting a picture on Instagram of a few Jumpman shoe boxes, and varsity jackets, captioning the image with “OVO Everything.”
