Wale Appears in ‘SNL’ H&M Skit with Jay Pharoah
Judging by Wale’s profanity-laced phone call to Complex magazine recently, you would think he doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. Well, he does. The MMG artist appeared in a ‘SNL’ skit with cast member Jay Pharoah mocking clothing retailer H&M.
In a hilarious music video, Jay is a throwback rapper — peep his box haircut, 8-Ball jacket and Lee jeans — who pokes fun at H&M’s colorful clothes at cheap prices. From their skinny jeans to their furry scarfs to their polka-dot dress shirts, MC Pharoah recites some hilarious lines about the retailer.
“You are a H&M shoppin’ a–, shoppin’ a– ninja,” he raps on the chorus.
‘SNL’ host John Goodman joins in on the fun as he shops for six shirts and four pairs of pants with a $60 budget. In one comical scene, the portly actor tries to put on a pair of skinny jeans.
Wale appears midway in the skit dropping some fashion advice for the fellas who cop clothes at H&M on the regular.
“Okay, I’ll give ya a mirror and some info / You’ll never get in girls’ pants wearing girls’ denim,” he raps dressed in H&M’s winter collection.
This funny skit will most likely boost H&M’s sales this holiday season.
Rick Ross also showed his support of Wale’s comedic talents on ‘SNL’ via Twitter. He tweeted:
