The Beat DFW Daily Video

Gossip blog Mediatakeout posted a flick yesterday of what a 70-year-old Jay-Z would probably look like and it’s been getting laughs all over.

Adding the tag “Blueprint 13” sealed the deal for me but I wanted to know who this REALLY was…so it turns out it’s famed 7-Up pitchman Geoffrey Holder.

Holder is an actor, dancer, choreographer and director from Port-Of-Spain, Trinidad. The prolific painter and art collector became the famous face of 7-Up’s “Uncola” campaign and also brought movie-goers to tears as the hilarious Nelson in Boomerang. He has been married to dancer Carmen De Lavallade since 1955.

Check out what Holder looked like when he was Hova’s age…
