Motley Crue’s ‘Kickstart My Heart’ Powers New Dodge Charger Commercial
Whoa! Yeah! Nothing says pedal to the metal quite like Motley Crue‘s ‘Kickstart My Heart,’ and a new Dodge Charger advertisement puts the song to good use.
Dodge has teamed with Motley Crue as the sponsor of their ‘Final Tour’ run and they put the band’s adrenaline-fueled classic into action for their latest commercial that’s titled ‘Just Kidding.’
The spot opens with a dimly lit city street before eventually zooming in the vehicle at the intersection. The announcer opens with the narration, “470 horsepower Hemme V8 butt-kicking, Motley Crue-blasting Volkswagen Passat.” But before you get the wax out of your ears, the narrator adds, “No, just kidding, it’s a Charger,” as the vehicle revs its engine and speeds off, rounding the curbs on the city streets at high velocity.
Motley Crue are currently in the midst of their North American dates with support from Alice Cooper and newcomers The Raskins. Click the link at the bottom of this post to see their tour dates.
