Drake To Rock ‘Super Bowl 2014’ Halftime Show For ‘Time Warner’

Published: Monday 13th Jan 2014 by David

Bruno Mars may have been enlisted to perform at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, but thanks to the folks over at ‘Time Warner‘, he isn’t the only chart-topper looking forward to partaking in the night’s festivities.

For, after announcing him as their headlining act for their pre-game party in NYC, ‘Warner’ has called on Drake to star in the company’s Super Bowl 2014 commercial, making him the ‘leading lad’ in their hotly anticipated  campaign!

Details below…

Securing the exclusive weeks before it takes place, Billboard reveal:

“Following recent ad buys starring Ricky Gervais in 2012 and a spot with “The Walking Dead”’s Norman Reedus in 2013, Time Warner Cable will feature Drake as the star of its 2014 Super Bowl campaign.

Jeffrey Hirsch, Time Warner Cable’s exec VP and chief sales and marketing officer, declined to share creative details of the Drake spot, but says of working with Drake, “He’s not just a phenomenal performer, but a phenomenal actor. I got to watch him at the shoot, and he can really act. He’s gonna be even bigger for many years to come.”

Set to see him enter the homes of the millions on course to tune in on the night, Drake‘s arrangement with ‘Warner‘ comes after he partnered with ‘Jordan Brand’ to launch his very own shoe line with the organisation, tightening the hold he has over male audiences and pushing sales of his new LP ‘Nothing Was the Same’ in tandem.

Since its September 24th 2013 release, the project has sold a sweet 1,344,000 units in the US alone, earning a Platinum certification there and ‘Gold’ glory in the UK for sales of over 100,000 copies.

    Why would they put him the year after Beyonce and DC TURNT IT!!!!

    Their ratings are going to plummet this year!!!!

    I dont even watch Football, But I know most men that do think Drake is an annoying Duche Bag… He even has a hilarious FB page that clowns him constantly…

    I dont care for Drake so I definitely will not be watching the Half Time show. It will suck ballz!!!!

    But I heard Beyonce is doing a Super Bowl equivalent in Brazil this year, Maybe ill stream that instead.
