This hilarious BET Award Show Promo has host Samuel L. Jackson channeling his inner Nicki Minaj. The 63-year-old movie star has done almost every badass role from Jules Winnfield to Nick Fury to Shaft, so it was quite surprising when he donned on a hot pink wig to cover the eccentric female artist Minaj. Yet, Samuel has a tendency to do what he wants, when he wants, as we can tell by some of his more interesting role choices.

Despite the clip’s short length, the ten seconds of Jackson belting the Minaj hit ‘Beez in the Trap’ definitely shows he has what it takes for this BET hosting gig. This advertisement is sure to have fans tuning into Jackson’s performance on July 1st, if not only to see what other tricks he has up his sleeve.
