2012 Mountain Dew Commercial – What’s the Song?
Lil Wayne shows “This is how we DEW” in the 2012 Mountain Dew commercial featuring the rapper and his song ‘Right Above It,’ in addition to cameos from rhyme-spitter Mac Miller and country superstar Jason Aldean.
The commercial opens with a close-up of the familiar green Mountain Dew bottle. As shots of skateboarders and snowboarders appear, Weezy is heard in a voiceover saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, if you got anything from me, it’s to find your thing and do you / Because we all know it’s not what you do, it’s how you do.”
Lil Wayne’s voice is played over the instrumental track from his 2010 song ‘Right Above It.’ Viewers are treated to footage from a Weezy concert, as well as shots from Miller and Aldean live shows. Race car driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. even makes an appearance, driving an ATV through the woods. The inclusion of the various performers is apparently meant to show the soft drink’s universal appeal.
‘Right Above It’ featured Drake and got to No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the biggest hit from Wayne’s ‘I Am Not a Human Being’ album. Does Weezy’s commercial make you thirsty for a Mountain Dew? Check out the clip below.
