Warren G Explains Promotion of Male Enhancement Drug
Rappers have been known to use their celebrity to land various endorsement deals, but when Warren G signed on as the spokesperson for male enhancement drug Affirm XL earlier this year, he raised a few eyebrows.
After appearing in commercials for the all natural enhancement product, Warren was set to distance himself from the brand, maintaining that he is not in need of any assistance in the “enhancement” department. Now he’s setting the record straight on why he originally signed on to promote the pill.
“A dude that lived by me was like, ‘Warren, I want you to get in this commercial,'” Warren tells The BoomBox. “He was like, ‘I’ll bring you in as a partner.’ He showed me the number that like [male enhancement drugs] Extenze make and I was like, ‘S—, I wanna get paid like that!’ So I said I might as well do a couple commercials just to build it up even more because the more it sells, the more I’ma make. I don’t need it, but I tried it and it works.”
After testing out the product, the 40-year-old revealed that the lasting effects were more than he bargained for. “The thing about it is, me being so young, it happens naturally,” he shares. “But when you take that, it’s hard to [bring it back down].”
For the men out there who do need a little assistance, Affirm XL is available via the company’s Facebook page here.
