"Things with Dunkin' are going well. Big promotion!" the Boston native proudly said in the clip. "They made me brand ambassador."

"I've got an idea. Collabs like they do, right?" the 51-year-old — who inked a multi-million dollar deal with Dunkin' earlier this year — proposed before attempting to painfully freestyle his own rap.
