Pretty much my two favorite things just converged into a new commercial for the LAIR at the L.A. Zoo: Glam metal + Betty White. The duo made five spots in total.
In case you didn't know, The Golden Girls is my favorite television show of all time and of course Betty White was one of the stars of the ensemble cast for that award winning show. Now Betty stars in the TV Land original sitcom Hot in Cleveland, which I also love. (And in case you didn't know, Valerie Bertinelli is another star of Hot in Cleveland and there are tons of rock/Van Halen jokes on the show). Anyway, imagine my excitement when I first saw the Betty + Slash commercial. The duo teamed up to promote LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates, and Reptiles), a new attraction that will feature 60 species of rare and endangered amphibians, invertebrates and reptiles at the L.A. Zoo.
Betty White is a big time animal lover. She's always been involved with zoos and she even recently wrote a book about her life in the zoo. I'm sure you're already aware of Slash's love for reptiles... so really, the pairing makes sense all things considered, right?
Betty is a board member for the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association... and Slash earned recognition from zoo officials for contributions to the wildlife center. Check out a couple of the ads.
