Ja Rule got everyone duped, even 50 Cent. Yesterday I played you guys a horrible commercial Ja Rule was in for a Greek deli called Papa Cristos. Now it was so bad, everyone even 50 was clownin’ him. He posted the commercial with the caption:  “This what happens … I’ll have you and your whole label selling gyros.”  And if people had just done their research they would’ve known the commercial was for a reality show. It’s called “Celebrity Show-Off” where celebrities compete to create the most innovative content from their homes. According to Ja “I’m a marketing genius, and this is all working exactly how I wanted it to.” Ja says he planned it on purpose to look cheesy so it’d go viral and get Papa Cristos some publicity. And it worked. Papa Cristos got a ton of publicity AND Half of the money raised from all the publicity will go to charity [No Kid Hungry].
