Here's The Story Behind The Viral Yoohoo Sketch From 'Atlanta' As Told By Clark County Himself
The actor behind the role tells us about the eerily familiar scene.
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.
