Watch Steve Tyler’s Skittles Super Bowl Commercial
Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on
In the 30-second spot, which you can watch above, the Aerosmith singer and budding country star gets his first look at a portrait of him made entirely out of the rainbow-colored candy. He’s not happy with it – “That’s E to the Z ooh twiddly-dee ‘sgusting!” he says. But the Skittles pic, which boasts Tyler’s big-ass lips, counters, Ned Flanders-style, “You haven’t heard me sing didlley-ding yet.”
The portrait then proceeds to belt out “Dream On”‘s chorus, which Tyler prompts to go “a little higher” … and higher … until. Just watch the spot.
Tyler’s commercial follows a couple other classic-rock-inspired ads that will air during the Super Bowl on Sunday: one featuring a Queen classic and a bunch of sheep, and another that includes the first-ever commercial appearance of Van Halen‘s “Runnin’ With the Devil.”
Meanwhile, Tyler is still prepping his debut solo album, which has been in the works for a couple years now. Two singles — “Love Is Your Name” and the recently released “Red, White & You” — have already been released. The LP is apparently due sometime this year, but we’ve heard that before.
