SkipTheDishes, Canada’s largest food delivery network is “Roar”-ing with excitement to announce the release of their new commercial and partnership with global icon and pop star Katy Perry, and the next evolution of Skip’s ‘Did Somebody Say’ campaign.The fun and colourful spot is the next iteration of Skip’s famed ‘Did Somebody Say’ campaign, which aims to capture the joy that Skip delivers to Canadians.

Making her mark on the brand new track with her stellar pop vocals, Skip’s newest ambassador Katy Perry says, “Working with SkipTheDishes was a really fun and natural fit. It just so happens that most of my records and eras have food undertones, so the pairing was perfect.”

The “Firework” singer brings audiences into her colourful and joyful imagination by delivering funny, catchy lyrics and relatable food moments, following up to Skip’s former ambassador, Snoop Dogg, who dropped his rap and hip hop remix of ‘Did Somebody Say’ this past February.

To celebrate Pride Month and the launch of the new spot, Skip is excited to host a consumer pop-up in Toronto on June 18, National Picnic Day that will highlight its collaborations with 2SLGBTQ+ owned restaurants.

  • To celebrate Pride Month, Skip is inviting Torontonians to the most fierce picnic of the year featuring live performances from five iconic Canadian drag queens including Xtacy Love, International Pageant Winner, and Mother of Priyanka and the Haus of Love, Luna DuboisTash RiotMiss Moco, and Devona Coe.
  • This is not a drill: the picnic takes place on June 18, National Picnic Day and comes at no cost to consumers.
