During the 2022 Super Bowl, a commercial for Doritos and Flaming Hot Cheetos aired (via The Hollywood Reporter). While that is not surprising, as these are major products that typically have advertising spots during the game, what the commercial contained had people talking.
The commercial featured rapper Megan Thee Stallion and Charlie Puth singing a rendition of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It” in a jungle scene while feeding a sloth hot Cheetos (via U Discover Music). While some fans were concerned people would start feeding the spicy chips to their animal companions, the main concern was for Salt-N-Pepa.
Fans are hoping that the duo owns the rights to their song since it is constantly used in the media. They are hoping the original performers are at least getting some of the cash. One fan tweeted, “I hope Salt n Pepa own the rights to Push it cause it’s used constantly.”
Actress Aisha Tyler got in on the conversation, too, tweeting, “I am happy for Salt n’ Pepa but not so much about whatever that was,” commenting on the strange contents of the commercial.
