The “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” appears alongside Gordon Ramsay, Rebel Wilson and Anthony Hopkins in the commercial for Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant Alexa.

In Amazon’s Super Bowl ad, Alexa loses her voice and causes mass chaos in the Amazon office. As a solution, the team finds a group of celebrities to replace her, including Cardi B.

In one of Cardi B’s segments, a boy asks Alexa how far Mars is. Her hilarious response: She laughs, and says, “Well how am I supposed to know? I’ve never been there. This guy wants to go to Mars; for what?!” After giggling, she says, “There’s not even oxygen there!”

In her second appearance, a man asks Alexa to play country music. Instead of listening to him and playing a country tune, Cardi B starts blasts her No. 1 single. After he corrects her, she stops the music — and then continues again with the same song.

Hailed as one of the best Super Bowl ads of the night, the commercial has been viewed more than 26 million times on YouTube as of Monday morning.
