It’s that time of year again. The time of year when we’re inundated with seemingly endless celebrity cameos on Super Bowl commercials. And, hey–we can’t say we hate it!

And as we all know, superstar rapper Cardi B is all about getting the bag. And if depositing more money in her bank account is as simple as appearing in a commercial or two each year, you know your girl will do it.

This Super Bowl, Cardi B will be appearing in an Uber Eats commercial co-starring Wayne and Garth of “Wayne’s World” fame.

The commercial is a send-up of the famous SNL-sketch-turned-hit movie. Comedians Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reprise their famous grunge-rock fan characters, Wayne and Garth, who host a public access TV show in their basement.

The commercial starts with Wayne and Garth asking viewers to promote local restaurants that are struggling in the pandemic. Then, they say they’re not going to try to play on their viewers’ baser instincts by manipulating them with “shameless” tactics like cute babies or celebrity cameos. And of course, they’re saying all this while they hold up cute babies and bring out Cardi B for a celebrity cameo.

They then say they’d never “jump on the latest trend” to manipulate viewers into eating local–while they do TikTok’s jump and snap clothes-change trend.

“Local eats! Wayne’s World! Yummy time! Excellent!” Cardi finishes the theme song off with her signature “Okurrr” sound.

Sure, the commercial may be over-the-top, but one thing’s for sure: local restaurants are struggling in the pandemic. Before the pandemic hit, approximately 10 million people were employed by restaurants in 2020, according to the New York Times. In the spring, half of those jobs disappeared. By October, 1.5 million less people were still employed at restaurants. So, eating local definitely is a cause worth fighting for.

Both Cardi B and “Wayne’s World” fans took to Twitter to express their love for the cute commercial.

A lot of them couldn’t help but comment on how the devil works hard, but Cardi B works harder.

Some fans were pointing out what parts of the commercial were most entertaining.

Say what you want about Cardi, but you have to agree that the girl is a consummate entertainer.

And of course, fans who remembered when the original movie came out couldn’t help but feel a little old at the nostalgic throw-back.

If this commercial is a preview of the other Super Bowl commercials coming on Sunday, then we’re just as excited for the commercial breaks as the game.
