Checkers' latest ad is a documentary-style video that features rapper Rick Ross as he discusses his love for the chain's food and explains why he recently decided to buy the Checkers in his hometown of Carol City, Florida. In the short film, Ross tells viewers about his tough upbringing in Carol City and the fact that he used to spend his car wash money on Checkers' hamburgers and fries. Created in partnership with Atlanta agency Fitzgerald & Co and media company Woven Digital, the work marks the official launch of the partnership between Checkers and Ross. The video is being supported by paid digital and social-media promotions and is running on Woven's entertainment and culture platform Uproxx.
