Dr. Dre Claims He's a Doctor: A Doctor in a Dr. Pepper Ad


On June 1st, a Dr. Pepper advertisement featuring Dr. Dre will hit television screens. But, that’s not all. A few seconds from Dr. Dre’s much delayed album, Detox, can be heard in this ad.

"Scientific tests prove when you drink Dr. Pepper slow, the 23 flavors taste even better. For me, slow always produces a hit," Dr. Dre says in the commercial, before stepping behind a DJ booth, putting on a pair of his own signature "Beats" headphones and slowing down the sped-up techno song that's playing by placing a can of Dr. Pepper over the record. The new track comes on, the party goes wild and Dre states "Slower is better -- trust me, I'm a doctor." (
