Young Money boss Lil Wayne‘s full-length Super Bowl 50 commercial has landed online this week.
The new advertisement for Apartments.com features Weezy F. Baby and Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum.
In the minute-long ad, Jeff Goldblum plays his recurring Apartments.com spokesperson “Silicon Valley Maverick” Brad Bellflower as he assists a gospel choir moving crew while singing The Jeffersons theme song, “Movin’ On Up.” Goldblum plays a piano lifted to the top floor, where he finds Weezy and George Washington — a play on The Jeffersons’ main characters George and Louise Jefferson — hosting a Super Bowl party.
