Mastercard’s Commercial With Camila Cabello, Coffee, Cupcakes, And “Havana”

Camila Cabello’s “Havana” is one of the catchiest songs released in recent years, so it’s no surprise to see it pop up in ads. We follow the lovely Camila Cabello as she walks down the street surprising people by paying for their coffee and cupcakes with her Mastercard straight from the smartphone. And when Camila suddenly drops her rainbow cupcake, someone pays it forward by getting her another one. It’s a cute and stylish spot that’ll also have you singing along. If you were wondering, the commercial was filmed in Manhattan’s West Village.
