Cardi B. and Pepsi are getting in the giving spirit.
In a new ad release Thursday, the 27-year-old rapper transforms into a sexier Santa and gives people what they REALLY want for Christmas — money.
The star is helping promote the company’s holiday campaign, in which newly designed 12-packs are equipped with QR-codes that when scanned, give Pepsi drinkers a chance to win and then gift money to friends and family.
Cash prizes range from $5 to $25,000 and “whether you gift your winnings to a friend, a family member or someone else,” says Todd Kaplan, the company’s VP of marketing, “Pepsi wants to make it easier for you to get into the gifting spirit.”
In gearing up for her latest Pepsi partnership, “I was excited because it’s like Christmas themed and you know, who doesn’t get excited to do Christmas stuff,” she tells PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘Aw it’s going to be extravagant! I can’t wait!’”
And if anyone knows about extravagance, it’s Cardi B. Dressed in a sparkling electric blue pants suit and rocking long platinum blonde tresses, she declares in the commercial, “If you don’t know their size, don’t get them a sweater. Get them the gift that always fits…cash!” Later, in the extended version, she encourages a struggling elf to twerk with cheer.
