Get in the Holiday Spirit With Cardi B & Pepsi’s ‘A Cardi Carol’ Ad: Watch

Cardi B is here to get you into the holiday spirit, as she’s teamed up with Pepsi to star in another commercial, which dropped on Thursday morning (Nov. 21). The lavish Christmas-themed clip finds Cardi topping the naughty and nice list, as she goes on to boss the elves of the North Pole around her twerk shop to give out money as part of the company’s “Gift It Forward” campaign. 

Speaking exclusively to Billboard, Cardi relayed that she’s especially excited for the holiday season this year, and her favorite part of shooting the ad in London was feeling that holiday spirit from everyone on set.

“It just made me so excited, as soon as I got there I’m like, ‘We’re getting to the holidays,'” she said. “I’m really excited for the holidays this year because my baby’s a little bit older. I cannot wait to see her interact with her family. I love toy shopping.”


As for whether Cardi is going to get into the spirit with a holiday song of her own, she admits the idea of recording a Christmas tune is a little scary. “I feel like those aren’t things you should touch,” the 27-year-old stated. “You should leave it to Mariah Carey and leave it there. You don’t want to mess it up. You don’t want to put a Christmas song out and it don’t do good and it ruins your spirit. Listen, I am not playing with Christmas.”

Holiday 12-packs of Pepsi will be stamped with QR-codes that will give buyers the opportunity to win cash prizes ranging from $5 to $25,000, where they’ll also be able to gift their winnings to friends and family as part of the season of giving. Catch the commercial during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the NFL games all Turkey Day.
