Drake and His Father Are Very Suave in Cool Virginia Black Ads [VIDEO]
Move over Dos Equis, “The Realest Dude Ever” is about to take over your spot. In Drake’s new ads for his whiskey brand Virginia Black, the rap superstar introduced his dad, Dennis G, as the new face of the company.
“Would you like to know who’s not worried about the most interesting man in the world?” he asks. “The Realest Dude Ever.”
From there, his debonair father takes over and drops a humorous gem on us. In one ad, Dennis G says, “First date? Aw, you know we’re going dutch.” In another ad, he quips, “What’s under my du-rag? Another du-rag.” Then, he provides the company’s motto, “One sip and woo!”
Of course, Drake and his pops are poking fun at Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man” campaigns. Interestingly, the original Dos Equis pitchman retired in 2016.
Since Drake’s launch of his Virginia Black whiskey last year, it’s become the biggest-selling liquor in Toronto. Drizzy’s liquor is a partnership with and Los Angeles-based spirits maker Brent Hocking, who is known for his DeLeón Tequila.
