More often than not, rap videos are about decadence—lavish three-minute clips filled with champagne bottles, pool parties, and dollar bills falling from the sky. But when Waka Flocka Flame is in the director’s chair, champagne is replaced with tomato juice, money is swapped out for lettuce, and the “sick beats” bumping in the background are abandoned in favor of some healthy red beets from the garden.
In a new PSA for Funny or Die and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Waka Flocka—named the Hottest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2016 by PETA earlier this year—can be seen taking over a shoot at a poolside barbecue. To begin, the Brick Squad rapper makes the video’s director get rid of the hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill, magically pulling some tomatoes and asparagus from his pockets.
“Those are hot dogs on the grill, correct?” Waka Flocka says. “Stuff like that gives you cancer. Now, would you feed your kids that, your dog, your wife, your mother? How bout some veggies?”
“Be a good example to our kids; protect their future,” the rapper says at the end of the clip. “Teach them early how to love veggies and fruits, and stay away from processed meats.”
One thing's fore sure: “Ain’t Nuthin’ But a G Thang” would look a hell of a lot different if everyone was sipping on 40s of V8.
