Salt-N-Pepa's '80s single 'Push It' was the soundtrack for a commercial from the company «Frito Lay": Video, facts, photos

February 13 will be a baseball game for Super Bowl 2022 years between teams "Rams" and "Bengals". Before this event,Frito-Lay presented prime minister "Flamin' Hot" commercial. 1 minute video includes a reimagined version of the song Salt N Pepa "Push It", this time with the participation of artists Megan Thee Stallion and Charlie Puta.

The ad tells of an explorer-traveler who accidentally drops a pack of Hot Doritos and Cheetos while climbing a tree in the jungle. Open packages leave some sloths a chance to taste a bite. The song begins with one of them joyfully uttering "Ah", which simultaneously is an introduction.

Megan Thee Stallion and Charlie Poof perform the Salt-N-Pepa version of "Push It" in 1987. However, after the duo released the song as a single in 1988 as a remix of "Mixx-It" by DJ Cameron Paul, it became their biggest hit. It reached number 19 on the charts Billboard, and also earned them a 1989 Grammy Award nomination in the first-ever category "Best Rap Performance".

From that point on, the positive reception of Salt-N-Pepa's "Push It" was so overwhelming that the pair re-released their debut album, "Hot, Cool & Vicious", with the hit breakthrough featured as the opening track. Thanks to popularity Salt-N-Pepa became the first all-female rap group to achieve both gold and platinum record sales, paving the way for women in music over the past decades.

"Pep and I were there trying to say 'Oh baby baby' thinking it was so corny. This song didn't make much sense to us. Then, while we were on tour, a San Francisco DJ named Cameron Paul started playing "Push It". All the radio stations followed suit and the track just took off." - Cheryl Salt told James about their surprise hit in 2017.
