Nicki Minaj Stars in Pepsi Commercial [Video]

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj gets stuck in a moment in her much-anticipated commercial for Pepsi entitled “Now in a Moment.” Time freezes for a young couple as they explore the beach, a tomato throwing festival, fashion show, and concert, where the “Starships” rapper is performing on stage. After opening a can of Pepsi, life resumes.

The spot, which is part of the soft drink maker’s “Live for Now” campaign, was shot earlier this year in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with Nicki’s hit single “Moment 4 Life” used as the soundtrack.

Pop open the extended cut below.

    Everyone could just admit that she’s winning at this point! But Nicki still has a 30 second spot for this commercial.. so she’ll have her own commercial of just her for Pepsi! (She confirmed it on Twitter)

    When Drake represented Sprite, he was in most of the commercial. She could’ve at least rapped like Drake did. This commercial does not say Nicki Minaj is a rapper. If one didn’t know she rapped, they couldn’t tell by this commercial.

  15. iloveonika

    If you are going to critique every single second of the commercial, don’t bother watching. Did she ask to only be in about 20 seconds of the commercial? No. But yet, she’s still making millions whilst your worried about how much screen play she’s getting. Psh, if I was Nicki, i’d be laughing at the dickriders ALL the way to the bank.

    @…, Lol u guys been saying that tired line for almost 4 years now. haters stay pressed!

    [Reply]

    ... Reply:

    @Trinity, yeah ok. After only 5 weeks her album has already fallen out the TOP 25. And barely selling 10K a week. She wont go platinum. Those aren’t “superstar” numbers. Those are c-list celebrity numbers. Face it she lost most of her fan base when she decided to go “pop” and no one’s buying the gimmicks anymore. It’s over!

    @Moss, hitsdailydouble.com -the industry website that tracts soundscan album sales. You know it’s the end when stans refuse to face facts. Her album flopped hard. You can call me a hater, but men lie, women lie, numbers don’t. 14:59!

    @Moss, Go to the hitsdailydouble website. It’s the industry site that tracks soundscan album sales. Nicki’s already out of the top 20. Or go to itunes. She’s out of the top 20 there too. The album flopped hard. You can call me a hater, but men lie, women lie, numbers don’t. 14:59!

    @…, Billboard ?

    ... Reply:

    @…, Billboard charts don’t come out until Thursday. But the hitsdailydouble chart is the same as the billboard chart. They’re both based off soundscan album sales. HitsDaily just comes out first. I hope Nicki takes this as a sign that she needs to focus more on making better music than, because all these endorsements will disappear if corporations think her popularity is falling. Which it is.

    Moss Reply:

    @…, she is still in the top 20 so…..?

    .... Reply:

    @…, yeah falling 8 slots with a 41% sales drop. coming in behind Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Luke Bryan, & Eric Church. Don’t know who they are? Exactly. after 5 weeks on the shelves, 6 singles, and more promotion than any artist has gotten in the past 3 years, she’s still not even gold yet. the only way she going platinum now is to pull a gaga and sell her album for .99 cents. if you’re a real fan, instead defending nicki you should be pushing her to improve her craft and work on releasing better music. otherwise all the people who supported on her first album, but didn’t buy this one won’t ever come back to support her.

    Why did Pepsi use an old song? Since it’s obvious, they don’t have faith in PFRR, they should’ve at least used Super Bass. It had a larger cross-over appeal.
