Guns N’ Roses Welcomes Gatorade to the Jungle
“Welcome to the fridge, yeah, we’ve got Gatorade!” Well, that’s not exactly how it goes, but yes, Guns N’ Roses’ classic ‘Welcome To The Jungle’ is now part of a new ad campaign for the popular sports drink.
Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper stars in the ad, hitting a big home run thanks to help from all those electrolytes and distorted guitars. The ad is for Gatorade ‘Fierce,’ and uses the tagline, ‘Gatorade Fierce — More Bold, Intense Flavor.” The suitably frenzied visuals are matched by the iconic song.
The Guns N’ Roses classic was the band’s first hit, hitting the Top 10 on the Billboard charts in early 1988, and helping push the band’s ‘Appetite For Destruction’ album to the top of the charts, and eventually to becoming one of the biggest selling albums of all time.
