Salt-N-Pepa‘s here once again! The famed rap duo reunited for a hilarious new commercial, which aired this week.
Salt (Cheryl James) and Pepa (Sandra Denton) got back together to perform their hit single “Push It.” They lent their vocal chops and dance moves to Geico, appearing in an ad for the insurance company.
The Grammy-winning performers have made intermittent appearances together in recent years, though they haven’t debuted an album of new music since 1997’s Brand New. They’re back at it in the Geico commercial, spitting the lyrics to “Push It” like a day hasn’t passed.
In the ad, Salt, 48, and Pepa, 50, are shown meeting up with various strangers, encouraging passersby to push a variety of things. They first approach a man facing a business’ door, giving him the motivation to push it open as they rap, “Ah, push it / Ah, push it.”
Next, a woman in an elevator who is choosing her floor is told to push the button “real good” with the help of original group member DJ Deidra “Spinderella” Roper. Salt-N Pepa-continue on, inspiring everyone from members of a birthing class to players on a football team to “push it real good.”
While their inclusion has little to do with insurance, Geico explains, “If you’re Salt-N-Pepa, you tell people to push it. It’s what you do. If you want to save 15 percent or more on car insurance, you switch to Geico. It’s what you do.”
