Cardi B has showed off her comedic side in her debut ad for Reebok.

The I Like It rapper was named as a brand ambassador for the sportswear giant last November, and on Tuesday, she dropped her first commercial – called Nails – in which she promotes the updated Club C Classic shoes.

During the short film, Cardi is seen sitting in a salon getting her hair done, as she discusses blocking a man on her phone who had failed to text her two days after they met.

She then notices her pristine white Reebok Classic Club Cs are untied, and rather than mess up her hair and lean over to tie up her shoelaces, she lets her freshly manicured nails do the work.

With her hands resting on her legs, Cardi’s nails grow to the floor, tie her shoes for her and then retract.

At the end of the video, the 26-year-old turns to a fellow customer and simply states: “Nailed it… So anyway, I think I’m going to block him.”

Cardi uploaded the video to her Instagram page too, with Snoop Dogg among the thousands of fans who commented on her post, simply writing: “U 2 Much,” alongside three of fire emojis.

Inga Stenta, senior director of global marketing at Reebok, said she wanted to “take a different path” while working with Cardi on the Club C Classic advert.

“Working with Cardi on Nails, we aimed to create a moment that is authentic to Cardi while breaking convention and doing something more engaging than a typical celebrity cameo. We took a different path, putting her in an everyday-type situation that shifts in an unexpected manner, spotlighting the iconic Reebok Club C in a completely unique way,” she commented.
