Steven Tyler Plays the Lead in Laugh-Out-Loud Skittles Super Bowl Commercial
Pay attention, all you 'football' fans who watch the biggest game of the season for only one reason: the commercials. Rockstar-gone-country-singer Steven Tyler is the leading man in a Superbowl 50 commercial for Skittles which is guaranteed to produce a laugh.
“Alright, let’s do this,” the singer announces as the ad opens. “I’ve got minds to twist and values to warp.”
Tyler is making this proclamation to two men preparing to unveil a work of art to the Aerosmith lead singer. As the big reveal is being made, you might expect to see a masterpiece. But no.
"That is E to the Z tweedly-dee-sgusting," Tyler declares as he is looking into a ridiculous self-portrait made entirely of Skittles.
It turns out the portrait can talk and has feelings. “You haven’t heard me sing-diddly-ding yet,” it says before trying to impress Tyler with a rendition of the iconic Aerosmith hit "Dream On."
The Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famer isn't impressed, and well, it doesn't turn out too hot for his portrait. Simply enjoy the clip and you'll see what we're talking about.
Last spring the head-banging rocker announced his transition into the country music genre as a solo artist and since then has put out two singles, "Love is Your Name," and most recently "Red White and You." Presumably, these will be featured on his upcoming country album that is still awaiting a title and official release date.
“My earliest influences put me somewhere between the Everly Brothers and the Carter Family and this project is all about me paying homage to my country roots," Tyler explains. "I’ve been working with some f—ing epic Nashville songwriters, getting my feet wet with their style and groove.”
