D.R.A.M. Promotes Broccoli Use (The Vegetable) In New PETA Video

D.R.A.M. is using his hit single “Broccoli” to encourage his fans to eat better and healthier.

The Grammy nominated artist partnered up with PETA to create a video, in which D.R.A.M. offers his friends broccoli but they are under the impression that he is referring to weed. The minute long clip begins with D.R.A.M.’s friends playing video games while he is in the kitchen preparing the broccoli.

“Just way until you try this green, bruh,” D.R.A.M. tells them enthusiastically. “This that Cali, that real dro like from back in the day.” After stating that he got the greenery from some “little old white haired lady from the farmer’s market,” he walks up to the guys and reveals what he has been talking about the entire time — a large portion of broccoli. The friends laugh it off and then proceed to eat the platter of broccoli before them.

“There’s nothing healthier than an abundance of greenery,” Lisa Lange, PETA’s Senior Vice President, said in an interview with Billboard. “PETA hopes D.R.A.M. inspires people everywhere to start steaming up that broccoli — and that kale, chard and spinach, too.”

Last year marked the release of D.R.A.M.’s debut album Big Baby D.R.A.M. The 14 song album includes standouts such as “Broccoli,” “Cash Machine” and “Cute.” The artist will also finish up the remainder of a tour he began in October of last year, with the second leg of the tour beginning on January 13 in Nashville.
