Kid: “Alexa, how far is Mars?” Cardi: “Well, how am I supposed to know? I never been there!”
If you've been keeping up with the rapper Cardi B, you know she's been having a pretty good year.
Now, Cardi, who received two Grammy nominations this year, is one of the stars of Amazon's Super Bowl commercial, teased last week and unveiled Wednesday.
The plot: Alexa, the brand's personal digital assistant, has "lost" her voice. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is beside himself. Cardi is one of several celebrities to come to the rescue and step in for Alexa. She lends her signature Bronx accent to the commercial alongside Australian actress Rebel Wilson, British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and Welsh actor Anthony Hopkins.
