Some restaurant workers are upset over a new insurance commercial featuring aspiring rapper Kevin Federline working in a fast-food restaurant, according to report in the New York Post. ‘Today’ co-hosts Meredith Vieira and David Gregory weighed in on the controversy. Video of the segment, aired Wednesday (January 24), at Bing has since been removed.
Video as part of the outtake reel from Nationwide’s forthcoming 2007 Super Bowl ad starring Kevin Federline has been posted online. The clip opens with a situation that changes in a dramatic and unexpected way. Just as viewers believe they are seeing a K-Fed rap video, the ad takes a funny, surprise twist. Nationwide’s ‘Life Comes at You Fast’ slogan is the punchline.
The outtake video at YouTube has since been removed.
Kevin Federline posted the following message on his Myspace: “Happy New Year everyone!! I hope you all had a safe & happy holiday! 2007 is going to be bigger & better…watch out! Stay tuned for a BIG surprise to be announced very soon!!!!!”
Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Tuesday night, “Last night in WWE wrestling, Kevin Federline pinned and beat the champion, John Cena. How about that? That should end the rumors that wrestling is fake! … He pinned him. You know, usually when K-Fed’s lying on top of someone for ten seconds, they get pregnant. So, this is a whole new deal.”
A source confirmed to TMZ that Kevin Federline’s contract with Five Star Vintage was allowed to conveniently expire, while the company’s official website no longer exists. Read more.
Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Thursday night, “Kevin Federline is going to wrestle the current WWE wrestling champ on New Year’s Day on pay-per-view. Yeah. I guess he decided he has a better future in fake wrestling than he did in fake rapping, apparently.”
Conan O’Brien joked during his Late Night monologue on Monday night, “It’s been reported that Kevin Federline may be competing in an upcoming professional wrestling match. I can’t believe I’m saying this. But I expected better of professional wrestling.”
Kevin Federline quickly reacted to footage of his estranged wife Britney Spears making out with music producer Jonathan ‘J.R.’ Rotem, who had worked with K-Fed on ‘Playing With Fire’ and had been listed as one of the struggling rapper’s top friends at Myspace. Rotem is no longer listed as a friend, with K-Fed shown last logged on Monday.
Kevin Federline was spotted on Sunday morning (December 3) as he was leaving the Malibu Colony area, where his estranged wife Britney Spears and the kids are currently staying. When asked if the kids looked good, Federline responded, “Always man.”
