Hollywood icon Samuel L. Jackson is showing off his sense of humor this week by appearing in a new BET Awards advertisement spoofing Young Money star Nicki Minaj‘s “Beez in the Trap” anthem.
In the commercial, Sam Jackson rocks a pink wig and nods his head to Minaj’s Roman Reloaded smash hit.
We’re anticipating major surprises this year from shocking moments to performances. Chris Brown, Usher, D’Angelo and Nicki are among the list of performers. Of course Nicki was the obvious choice for Jackson to spoof. Rocking a pink bob wig Jackson raps, sans the curse words, Nicki’s chorus to “Beez in the Trap.” When he turns around to face the camera we see his gold plated four finger rings on each hand. One spells out “BET” and the other “Awards.” It has to be hard for a man like Jackson to sport a pink wig while keeping a stone cold face. But he does, until the very end. We only have one question: is it just us or was this the softest we’ve heard Jackson speak? His delicate voice was so out of character for him. If there was one time he had to yell in the camera, rapping “Beez in the Trap” would be it. Nonetheless he’s hilarious. (Vh1)
Minaj’s eye-catching “Beez” music video premiered last April.
Nicki Minaj is parading her assets in a newly-debuted music video for her single “Beez in the Trap”. The female rapper provocatively moves her curvaceous body which is clad in a leopard-print and a neon-green bikini. She also seduces the camera from behind a wire fence. The music video with club-party atmosphere was directed by Benny Boom and filmed in Miami. It features cameos from Minaj’s featured guest 2 Chainz and Cash Money label boss/rapper Birdman.
