Did you see the Super Bowl ad with Ozzy Osbourne and Justin Bieber? The musical stars are hocking the Best Buy "buy it back" program. The ad itself isn't that great, but Ozzy does a good job playing himself.
I firmly believe the constant use of 80s rockers in modern commercials says something about the popularity of the music we love. Plus, classic rock and metal is just about all that is played at sporting events these days - it's just inescapable. All that exposure only means good things for Glam and metal bands.
How much do you suspect Ozzy (and Sharon) made for appearing in this ad? A few million? Not bad for what was probably one day of work.
I wish I was going to Sweden Rock Fest - I've never seen Ozzy live and he's playing there this year. He's also playing Wacken Open Air...not that I am going to that event either.
