DJ Khaled can say he gained another major key as he secured a spot in the latest commercial for Apple Music with Naomi Campbell and Ray Liotta.
With his ad with Naomi Campbell, it sets for a mini romantic scene near a sunset on a cruise while listening to a little “Bump n Grind” by R Kelly. The ad following with Khaled and Ray Liotta the two are being pampered by half a dozen manicurist, pedicurists and masseuses as Khaled attempts to explain how Apple Music works. Indeed, the service offers millions of tracks including the Doobie Brothers’ “Minute By Minute,” per Liotta’s request and then surprise, but the tough guy actor is not going to be accused of “playing himself.”
Liotta doesn’t understand Khaled’s catchphrase when he says, “Don’t ever play yourself Ray, I’m telling you,” and the scene spirals into an awkwardly intimidating stare down that nods to Liotta’s classic gangster film GoodFellas. It’s all fun and jokes of course and no one gets hurt.
Khaled and Liotta are represented by UTA. Watch both clips here:
