It looks like it’s the year of the hip hop star as another major group gets their own soft drink commercial. First, it was Cardi
In the commercial, they challenge viewers not to “just watch” but to “put your phone down and do it!”
Also featured in the new Mountain Dew commercial is Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid, who is busy dunking basketballs and just doing it (how Nike-esque).
UFC fighter Holly Holm is also seen right at the beginning of the Mountain Dew commercial, as well as 88-year old painter Ushio Shinohara, who can be seen throwing bright green punches at a canvas.
Skateboarders Sean Malto and Mariah Duran are also seen in the new Mountain Dew commercial as they do their thing.
The newest Mountain Dew commercial is a full minute long on YouTube but there are other, shorter versions. These will be played in television spots nationwide, including multiple 15- and 30-second spots that have been playing heavily during NBA basketball games since the commercial debuted on January 21.
