'Dunkin Love' parody: Watch gay men's passionate donut tribute to Beyoncé's 'Drunk in Love'
Adrian Anchondo and Reggie White take their donut fandom to another level
Gay San Franciscans Reggie White and Adrian Anchondo have transformed the hit track into "Dunkin Love", acting as the US singer and her rapper husband Jay Z in their own professional video.
Americans are known for their love of donuts and 'Box O'Joe' ice coffee, but "Dunkin Love" takes the West Coast’s fandom to a whole new, somewhat disturbing level.
White donned a tight-fitting dress and Bey-style wig to whip back and forth while licking a donut seductively and rolling around on the beach, while Anchondo threw on a hefty gold chain and baseball cap to impersonate Jay Z.
The point of their four and a half minute tribute? To celebrate Dunkin’ Donuts’ intention to open more chains in Southern California and encourage the company to keep expanding.
"I get hungry when I see that billboard baby," White sings. "I been thinking, I been thinking, why can't I have you on the West Coast baby, I want you. Open all night and everything alright, no complaints cos I heard Dunkin will soon be in my sights."
"When the Beyoncé visual album came out, we did what any self-respecting gays would do – we had a viewing party," Anchondo told NewNowNext. "Reggie came over and we basically screamed, cried, fondled, laughed and threw shade for an hour or so. I thought, why not do a video parody? It fits with the song."
"Cigars on ice, feeling like an animal with these cameras all in my grill, flashing lights" becomes "coffee on ice, feel like an addict when I smell it on the grill, donut bites" in another particularly great lyrical example.
Anchondo revealed on his Facebook page that "Dunkin Love" was made with "$100, a whole lot of good friends, commitment and a love of making people smile".
"Now all we want is the Queen herself to see the video," he wrote, meaning Beyoncé. "Maybe we will get a coupon or something."
