It’s very popular for classic rock songs to provide the soundtrack to various commercial, but what about when an actual artist appears in the commercial? That, too, has happened often, like when Eddie Money, who celebrates a birthday today (March 21), tried to actually sell two actual tickets to paradise in a Geico ad.
In honor of the Money Man’s birthday, here are six of our favorite classic rock ad cameos, from that cheesy Folgers coffee ad with Paul Stanley to…John Lydon endorsing butter?! (Yes, that happened!)
Eddie Money – Geico
Lita Ford – Indeed.com
Paul Stanley – Folgers Coffee
Alice Cooper – Staples
John Lydon – Country Life Butter
Steven Tyler – Kia Stinger
