It’s pretty clear that if a company wants to sell a product, the best way to go about it is by slapping a famous celebrity face on the advertisement. But we rarely ever get to see big-name people like Drake and Rihanna endorse really anything — until now.

According to The Huffington Post, art director David Redon, created a series of vintage advertisements featuring our favorite modern celebrities. The ads also use song lyrics to help sell the product. For example, Drizzy and Ri Ri  are the faces of “Take Care” a beauty product which Rihanna is applying as Drake looks at her lovingly. We also love “Outkast” soap, featuring Andre 3000 and Big Boi. The slogan reads “So Fresh, So Clean: Outkast Soap for your beauty bath!”

We have to say, these images are well designed… and pretty clever. We mean, really, who wouldn’t buy something from “Suit and Tie” at J.T. Fashion in Memphis? Or what about Lana Del Rey’s shampoo called “Young and Beautiful”?

What’s even better than just looking at these images is being able to actually own one. If you see something you fancy, you can head over to Society 6 and purchase art prints, shirts and even onesies featuring these brilliant images. And even if beauty and fashion aren’t your thing, there’s plenty of other clever ads, like Snoop Doggy Dogg’s “Gin and Juice.”
