In the second season of FX’s “Atlanta,” stans of the Donald Glover executive-produced series are introduced to an eerily familiar rapper named Clark County. Clark is portrayed by up-and-coming actor, RJ Walker.
One of the season’s most memorable moments features Walker’s character and comes in the form of a Yoohoo commercial. Clark is seen performing a jingle reminiscent of recent ads like Lil Yachty’s Sprite commercial and Chance the Rapper’s irksomely catchy Kit-Kat commercial.
A few days after the episode premiered, an Instagram repost from Lakeith Stanfield, who plays Darius, further solidified the segment’s virality. Walker says he figured the parody commercial would be a hit.“Honestly, I did know. Before we shot it, I was like, this is going to go viral. I spoke it,” Walker recently told Blavity.
Watch the parody commercial below and read the full interview with Walker -- where he talks about the social media chatter about who his character is inspired by -- at our sister site, Shadow and Act.
Atlanta airs Thursday nights on FX.
