A look at the super bowl ads and blasts from the past in this week's Rockstar Ramblings.
Excerpt from The Rockstar Ramblings:
Last Sunday both Motley Crue and The Darkness were featured in Super Bowl ads. They aren’t the first from their genre to sell out, or allow the semi-truck full of cash back up into their driveway, nor will they be the last. Over the past few years a lot of rockers from the eighties have partnered with Madison Avenue to create brief whore-like relationships. This week a look at the new Super Bowl commercials, and a few blasts from the past commercials:
NOTE: In honor of my 3rd grade teacher, Mr. Reed, we will be grading on a curve. He always felt the need to let everyone know they failed; however, he was required by the school to give some passing grades. Mr. Reed was an ass.
In ‘Dokken vs. The Chicken’, Norton Virus software painted a picture of the band Dokken wanting to infect a chicken (playing the part of a computer hard drive) with a virus. The chicken defends itself with a switchblade; the band (and presumably, the virus) backs off. Of all the questions, and let’s face it, there are many, I keep asking myself one: Why Dokken? Why not Bret Michaels infecting the chicken with a virus? Too real? I found this commercial pretty over the top and very stoner friendly. GRADE: B+
