The AMAs featured performances from superstars like Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and Jennifer Lopez, but it was Waka Flocka Flame who stole the show. During the telecast, an ad for Pine Brothers throat drops aired in certain markets starring the “No Hands” rapper.
The 30-second spot shows Waka sitting on a couch while smoke fills the room.
“What does a Waka Flocka Flame do for minor soar throat relief? This here: Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops,” says Waka. “Can’t live without my Pine Bros., straight up. Nothing soothes your throat like soft delicious Pine Bros.”
He lists its all-natural ingredients, “plant glycerin” and “imported gum acacia,” which help soothe his, umm, throat. “So next time you need sore throat relief—for whatever reason—take your Pine Bros.”
The ad was a hit on social media. Following its airing, Pine Bros. trended on Twitter while viewers exploded with laughter.
“LMFAO THAT WAKA FLOCKA COMMERCIAL WAS THE BEST THING IVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE,” wrote one fan.
