2011 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards: Best Commercial
To kick off the third day of the 2011 Ultimate Classic Rock Awards, we’re giving you a chance to vote on a rather light-hearted category: The best commercial featuring a classic rock song or artist.
As we looked back over the year, there turned out to be many more examples of these advertisements than you might expect. We narrowed the field down to what we considered five of the best, featuring Ozzy Osbourne, David Bowie, “Bruce Springsteen,” Elton John and AC/DC.
They are all presented below for your enjoyment and critical review, followed by a voting form. You have until 11:59 PM EST on Jan. 1, 2012 to make your choice, and the winners will be announced on Jan. 3.
Ozzy Osbourne, ‘Crazy Train’ Honda Pilot Commercial
Elton John, ‘Rocket Man’ Volkswagen Passat Commercial
AC/DC, ‘Shoot to Thrill’ Call of Duty Commercial
Ben Stiller (as Bruce Springsteen) ‘Just the Stories’ Parody
David Bowie, ‘Changes’ BMW Advanced Diesel Commercial
