Nokia Lumia 900 shakes its booty in Flo Rida's newest video

Flo Rida is no stranger to Nokia Windows Phones. Back in February in the video for 'Wild Ones' the popular artist was seen using the Lumia 710 and Twitter. Though it was just in passing, it was a nice nod for Nokia's newest phone.

In Mr. Rida's new video (can we call him that?) for 'Whistle' the shiny and sexy glossy-white Lumia 900 is the star. While the 900 actually doesn't shake its booty (creative license, sorry), it does get some screen time.

Starting at about 1:47 and a few seconds later you can see the popular Windows Phone being used for some photos and sending an MMS. Not a bad plug for the phone, we suppose.

Check out the video after the break... Warning: NSFW [lots of badonkadonks]. Thanks, Daniel, for the tip!

Edit: There looks to be a copyright issue where playing it on mobile phones, ironcially, is not supported. You can try through your web browser instead.

  • Video format isn't supported on phone? -_-
  • I must have a magic Lumia 900 then cause it works perfectly fine for me.
  • Doesn't work for me either and I have a Lumia.
  • Must be, cuz it doesn't work on my 900 either :(
  • That's really strange. Just to prove I'm not lying.

    It works fine on my Lumia. Are you trying to view in the WPCentral app or in IE web browser?
     
  • Video was not found. -_-
  • If you can't get my youtube video to play then there's definitely something wrong with your phone. I am not blocking anyone, that's for sure. Have you installed the YouTube plug-in from marketplace? http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/apps/dcbb1ac6-a89a-df11-a490-00237de2db9e
  • Nothing wrong with our phones. Video does not play for us.
  • If you are in the mobile IE web browser and you can't play any of the links to YouTube content including my own personal video then something is not right with how your phone is setup.
  • I have a white ATT Lumia 900.
  • Video is region locked.. Tried to view it on my Ultrabook and got a message saying something about copyright restrictions.
  • There's a phone in this video you say?
     
    I'll have to review multiple times to see.
  • lol
  • hahaha likewise goodsir! likewise!
  • View in browser will work.
  • Currently unavailable.
  • Thanks! Actually a good song too.
  • -_-
  • Daniel, fix the issue of it not working on the phone. Please. Thxs.
  • Nothing I can do on my end, it's probably a copyright issue with Warner and not allowing it mobile.
  • Ok. Too bad. Thxs Daniel though.
  • Working for me on the phone. Check it out:

    What's up with that?
  • Since the screwed up music industry has made sure this video is blocked on Youtube for some regions (because you earn more money if no one can hear or see your artists and music)  I have included an alternative link for it here:

  • yea it's restricted in canada. thanks for the link
  • Thanks for the link, yet another good marketing play by Nokia. Mindshare.
  • Yeah, doesn't work as HTML 5 video, works only in Flash. The phone is prominently displayed though, catchy tune. I guess copyright has something to do with why it's not HTML 5 video.
  • That's interesting...you would think someone from marketing at Nokia/Microsoft would reach out to him for a commercial spot to air nationally.
  • This is a sick song downloaded on Zune music pass :D loving the lumia love
  • Thats really not a bad song. Of course, the subject matter could be a litte less... obvious. 
  • Plays on my Lumia 710 no problem.
  • It plays on my Dell venue pro.
  • I could watch it on my cyan 900 but it made me want a white one even more now. Anyone wanna trade
  • ill trade you my samsung focus and $300 for that cyan. there's no cyan love here in canada
  • I hate when music videos are blocked from mobile devices, What's the reason for this? No one wants to or should have to sit at a computer just to watch the latest music videos
  • Blocked in Switzerland as well. Typical. :-(
    Thanks to the person who put up the hothiphop link. :-) I like the song.
  • Flo Rida allready has a video with a lumia in it.

    Can you find it?
  • I wonder if Flo Rida really uses a Lumia 900 as his daily driver
  • Yep, he posts on Twitter from his Windows Phone when not from his site. He's a #WinPhan too!
  • Works plays perfectly fine with me. HTC HD7 (T-Mobile)
  • It works on the IE in wp7 but you have to go to the wpcentral page and set your preference as 'mobile browser' in ie's settings. If you set it to 'desktop' and reload the page, the video will not be available. So i dont think its a copyright issue. Weird.
  • Flo has good hooks but the style is Nellies mostly. Not sure who came first tho. Honies galore here!
     
    Seen some cool Lumia ads recently
  • Is it me or does the phone tile in the first shot say 'emergency only'... I guess AT&T forgot to give him a SIM card :-P
    Edit: or no signal on location
  • There's also the VEVO app if it's available there...lots of music videos to see there! =P
  • They have lumia 900 parts in stores now
  • so proud od wp7. been rockin one since early 2010 and its nice to see te growth. like to see more but its come a long way. 2 or 3,000 apps to 90,000 now
