‘She was lovely and so funny and so beautiful, and came to play. I loved working with her,’ Myers told ET’s Kevin Frazier in reference to Cardi’s presence on set.
‘She had such a funny, quirky vibe about her and she made me laugh a lot,’ Carvey said of her comedic touch.

Eat local: Cardi B teams up with the Wayne’s World boys for an Uber Eats commercial set to air during the Super Bowl, where the trio encourage viewers to ‘eat local’ and support restaurants amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic
True to form to the famed SNL skit and two feature films, the one-minute ad opens with the theme song, and is followed by the duo’s instruction to eat local.
‘As a local access show we want everyone to support local restaurants, but we’d never manipulate you the way all these other commercials do,’ they announce.
The advert then proceeds to harp on the ‘eat local’ manipulation angle by including windblown glamour shots and the hosts holding up mini-me babies as they declare to ‘never shamelessly rely on a celebrity cameo,’ as Cardi makes her appearance.
‘Yeah eat local,’ she says in typical Cardi attitude and intonation, before the trio give a nod to the very popular TikTok outfit-change jump cut and switch wardrobes with each other.

Elaborating on the decision to partner with the SNL alums and Uber Eats, the hitmaker told People, ‘Y’all know I love to eat, and right now we have got to be supporting our local restaurants, like The Griddle Cafe in L.A. So many spots are struggling right now, and it’s up to us to EAT LOCAL! That’s why I teamed up with Uber Eats and my boys Wayne and Garth to help.’
The online delivery platform has allocated $20M to help struggling small businesses amid the countless restaurants nationwide that have been forced to shut down entirely or lay off numerous workers since March 2020.
A 30-second commercial during Super Bowl LV was initially put up for bidding at $5.6 million, which was about the same as last year’s cost.
Super Bowl LV, which pits Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, kicks off on Sunday, February 7, at 6:30PM EST.
