Jay Z and Action Bronson Tip Their Caps to Derek Jeter in ‘RE2PECT’ Tribute [VIDEO]
“No matter what hat you wear, tip it to The Captain. #RE2PECT,” reads the tagline for the spot. Derek, whose jersey number is 2, will be retiring from the Yankees this year.
In addition to the rappers paying homage to the star shortstop, the visual also features sports notables including Michael Jordan and Carmelo Anthony and celebrities like Spike Lee and Billy Crystal.
Action took to Twitter to explain his excitement over the ad. “To be a diehard Yankee fan and to be anyway involved in anything that has to do with them is truly a dream come true,” the Queens native said. “Me bein in that commercial was for all the Bleacher Creatures out there wit their Headphones on listening to John Sterling/Susan Waldman.”
