Who’s That Woman in the Kyle Busch NOS Rowdy Commercial?
About a year ago, I wrote an article about a string of commercials starring NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, promoting a new NOS Energy Drink. One of the commercials, “Can I Get a Photo,” features a young woman asking Kyle for a photo… with the new NOS Rowdy can. The video has amassed over 2.5 million views, with many viewers asking questions like, “Who is the women [sic] though?” and “What’s her name? Who is she?”
And her name is…
Well, folks, I’m here to tell you that she is none other than actor/comedian/musician Graci Carli. I’ve known Graci for almost 10 years and became a fan of her music when she was in a band called The Chasing Game. Since then, Graci has moved from her hometown of Dayton, Ohio, to the Big Apple, working as prominent actress, getting cast in a variety of commercials, films, TV shows, and promotional videos.
Oh, hey.. didn’t see you there. I was just enjoying a leisurely sit in this chair while wearing this dress that accentuates my fake Cs. Be sure to check out our quick cameo on SNL tonight. #breastforsuccess UPDATE: Looks like we got bumped or postponed for another time!? Still got to hang out with the hilarious Pete Davidson and see behind the scenes, so not a total loss❤️sorry to anyone who watched to see me!

Where you may recognize her
One of her most recent roles includes a comedic spot on BET’s 50 Central, playing a woman saved by black Spider-Man (50 Cent). Just an FYI, she has a few more sketches from the show premiering on Dec. 6 and Dec. 13. Graci also starred in a few other memorable commercials and videos you may recognize, including the NFL Shop Commercial “Vikings Family” and the parody video “Westboro Mingle.”
The hostess with the mostest
Graci has also done other auto-themed work, including starring in an online advertisement for smart cars and acting as host for a pilot for Amazon, which included this video covering the Bugatti Chiron:
New music on the way
Recently, Graci has been making music with beau Tony Bush (Scenes from a Movie) as a duo called SLEEP/OVER. The pair has been documenting their musical journey on Instagram with hilarious videos and snippets of songs, and they just finished a photo shoot in NYC and will be releasing music very soon.

Ben never thought he’d be writing about cars for a living, but here he is, knowing more about the Kia Stinger than he’d care to admit. When he’s not devoting his time to researching engine specs and other oh-so-exciting car details, he can be found enjoying time with his wife and dogs. See more articles by Ben.
