OVER the years, Amazon has released countless commercials for their Amazon Prime services.
Their newest one, “Medusa Makes Friends,” features the Greek goddess Medusa who is known for turning those who look into her eyes to stone.
Who plays Medusa in the Amazon Prime commercial?
In the new Amazon Prime commercial, Medusa is seen buying new sunglasses through the service in order to show off her fun side.
“Medusa lived with a hideous curse. I mean the whole turning people to stone thing was a bit of a buzzkill right,” the narrator of the commercial said.
“So she ordered sunglasses with Prime one-day delivery, clever girl. People realized that she is actually hilarious once you get to know her.”
The actress behind the viral role is Jesi Le Rae.
The commercial also features Nicki Minaj’s song “Chun-Li,” which is from her 2018 album Queen.
