YouTube Rapping Wife Gets Car Commercial (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Chelsea Ranger, a dental hygienist in Toronto, Canada, became an Internet star last year after her husband, Paulo, posted a video online of her rapping Salt-N-Pepa’s “None of Your Business” inside their car.

That video (below), entitled "The cutest gangsta I know. My wife," has racked up over 17 million views on YouTube since November of 2014.

"We were going home," Ranger told Examiner.com. "We had just done some grocery shopping. I feel like that was the day we bought our vacuum cleaner. We were just on our way home, and I had eaten like a movie-theater-size bag of M&M's. So I think I got a little bit of a sugar high. I was playing some of my music on my play list and singing along, and on that song Paulo decided to press record."

Uproxx.com reports that Acura recently cast Ranger in their new “Drive Like a Boss” commercial, in which she raps along with Blondie's "Rapture" (video below).

Ranger shot her part of the commercial inside a studio against a green screen. Scenic shots of the car flying down a highway were later edited in.

Acura also produced a behind-the-scenes video (below) of Ranger and Paulo on the commercial set. The couple says they only expected their family and friends to watch the original video, but had no idea it would lead to a paying gig.
