Have You Seen Rob Zombie's Woolite Commercial?

Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2011 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments2 Comments

So we all know Rob Zombie isn't Glam. But he is pretty important to the metal world. And he's important to the film world, too. He primarily makes horror films, but recently he directed a commercial for... Woolite. You know, the detergent. I have no idea idea why detergent has gone metal lately (remember I recently posted the Gain ad that features a Warrant tune), but I think it's cool. Anytime you get metal music - or even just metal-like images on television - that's a good thing, right?

At any rate, the commercial is downright odd, but I guess it gets the point across: Woolite won't destroy your clothes. No word if this commercial will air in America, so check it out below. It's fascinating on so many levels.

Wow! I vaguely remember Woolite commercials being pretty stodgy and corny. This is actually pretty cleaver.

Chances are it won't air here as we are too puritanical to handle "torture" imagery, regardless of the,point it's trying to make, particularly these days, where so much of what we are allowed to see on TV, etc. is now dictated by The Tea Party. Still, you never know, something could slip through.

One thing's for sure, the commercial is beautifully done and very strong conceptually.
