BLINK. BLINK. I guess I’m surprised no one has done this type of craziness prior to this commercial. Go ahead…take a look:
The spot posits the idea that Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Tupac Shakur, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe and Bruce Lee are all alive and chilling on a tropical paradise. Elvis inflates a water raft while Monroe rubs suntan lotion on Tupac’s belly and Cobain and Lennon lounge on beach chairs. But the calm and flow of their fruit-flavored brews is interrupted when Lee suddenly spots a ship in the distance, forcing the cadre of celebrities to hide in their secret spot ASAP – their cover’s even almost blown by the King’s potbelly, which sticks out from behind a palm tree.
I love that “Kurt” gets the best scene…his epic dry-heave after witnessing the elderly “Marliyn’s” skirt fly up was worth a “HA!” from me.
