Dizzee Rascal is no stranger to advertising and he is back again it would seem, promoting Ladbrokes Casino this time rather that Sky Sports.
We’re not exactly sure when the Ladbrokes Casino advert was launched featuring this British rapper, and it only came to our attention because it was tweeted about a few times.
The tweets would suggest that it has been on television since February of this year, or at least a Ladbrokes Casino advert of some description featuring Dizzee Rascal.

These are just a few examples of the tweets we have seen about the advert:

- Ladbrokes ads are getting out of hand now, first James Buckley (Jay from the inbetweeners) and now Dizzee Rascal ffs
- After watching that new Ladbrokes advert, I really can’t decide if I’m gassed or embarrassed for Dizzee.
- Not content with advertising The Sun, Dizzee Rascal’s now advertising Ladbrokes. He’s a walking masterclass in selling out.

The Ladbrokes Casino Advert
Unfortunately, the Ladbrokes Casino advert is not available to view via YouTube but you can watch it on the link below:
The advert starts in an Indian restaurant and then a voice shouts Ladbrokes, shaking the tables and all the food on them. A table lifts with a red telephone box appearing underneath.
Dizzee Rascal appears from the box and an older lady, who has been covered in korma, says his name.
He responds with ‘Yea, a bit of time travel and all that. Anyway, it’s time to show you Ladbrokes Casino’.
He then shows off ‘wicked’ roulette and blackjack before being handed his takeaway.
He calls his friend from the phone, telling him he has his order and that he also has a ‘banging baseline for his symphony’ before pulling the one arm bandit on the phone box and time travelling out of the restaurant.
We then see the Ladbrokes logo and hear Brian Blessed saying ‘Where the nation plays’.
