Bret Michaels Reunites With His Bobblehead in New Nissan Commercials
The "Endless Love" between Bret Michaels and Nissan keeps getting stronger.
The Poison frontman crooned that classic Lionel Richie and Diana Ross duet in a memorably goofy ad for the car-maker last year, and now he's back in a slew of new spots — along with the Bret bobblehead that was spotted in the original commercial.
"I have a bit of a self-deprecating sense of humor, so it was great to shoot a 'tongue in cheek' video and have fun with the idea of a power ballad written for a bunch of commercial vehicles," Michaels told the New York Daily News after making his Nissan pitchman debut. Calling himself an "avid car and motorcycle freak" as well as the proud owner of a Nissan Titan truck, he hinted at the possibility of future collaborations.
Saying he'd "been pushing real hard and heavy" for a Truck of Love spin-off to his Rock of Love VH1 dating series, he mused, "Hopefully something pans out. But that’s what I love about working with them. I’ve turned down a lot of campaigns from a lot of different companies, but Nissan just felt right. They wanted to have fun and I did too, and it just really worked."
You can see that lighthearted spirit in the new Nissan ads, including the Nick Spooner-directed spot at the top of this post, produced in cooperation with The Sweet Shop and the TBWA\Chiat\Day agency. More clips are attached below. Michaels' new solo album, True Grit, is out now.
