Doesn't work for me. Using Jay Z feels pretty gratuitous and random too.

i think they used him well. subtle and brief, yet did the job.

and the reason it doesnt seem random to me is because the whole commercial had that high-roller style, following a guy who lived a high-roller life and ended up in a high-roller club. + the art direction and music fit helped justify his appearance as well

I like the whole vibe and humour at the end. The batteries floating around are not working for me.

How can you like this pathetic douche? He's so insecure that he has to be above 95% charge. What's the point? At least he could have shared some energy juice, but no he has to keep it all to himself.

How about some selfless idea: he goes around recharging those in need of extra energy like in a emergency situation.
