Jay-Z and Ludacris raise a glass in two new commercials for their favorite cognacs.
Jay’s commercial starts with him smoking a cigar in slow motion, enjoying the New York skyline before reaching for his glass of D’USSE. Luda’s commercial has a bit more going on and features the rapper enjoying a classy night out with some friends. Former Danity Kane member, D.Woods, is also in his commercial, which was directed by actor Larenz Tate.
“It was a pleasure working with my good friend Chris Bridges on the Conjurecommercial,” said Tate. “It feels good to work alongside people you respect. I hope my vision as a director gives the world a glimpse of the new level that Chris is taking his cognac brand. Cheers!”
