On Super Bowl Sunday we will be inundated with a plethora of video commercials that will attempt to sell us various things … and among those commercials will be one from Best Buy that will star young popstar Justin Bieber with old rockstar Ozzy Osbourne. Today we get a first look of when Bieber met Osbourne on the set of their new Best Buy commercial.
JUST one month ago, OZZY OSBOURNE had never even heard of JUSTIN BIEBER. But he’s fully aware of the teen pop titan now. The unlikely duo have teamed up to shoot a TV ad to air during the Super Bowl -–and it appears they got on like a house on fire. Justin Tweeted: “Guess the word is out. me and OZZY did a pretty funny commercial for @BestBuy for the SUPER BOWL – got to make some fun of myself. pretty funny. u gotta be able to laugh at yourself or life isnt fun.” Dressed from head to toe in futuristic space outfits, Ozzy, Justin and the heavy metal icon’s wife SHARON will all make appearances in the commercial for US electronics retailer Best Buy. In December, a bewildered Ozzy asked a TV chat show host: “Who the fuck is Justin Bieber?” when quizzed about his contemporary music tastes. Still, the smiles all round suggest Justin wasn’t holding a grudge when they met on the set of the gadgets promo. Who knows, maybe they even shared a few tips, with Justin teaching Ozzy a few dance moves and the former BLACK SABBATH man encouraging his young buddy to eat bats’ heads for lunch. Best Buy spokesman Drew Panayiotou said: “We’re delighted to have Justin and Ozzy helps us tell the Best Buy story. “We know people have high expectations for these ads and Justin and Ozzy add a whole new dimension of fun.”
LOL! It’s exactly this kind of spectacle that makes for a great Super Bowl ad. To be honest, I could really care less about Justin Bieber or Ozzy Osbourne on their own … but teamed up in this new commercial, yeah, I’ll admit I’m interested in seeing how the whole thing turns out.
Oh and as a side-note … I had THE most horrifying dream last night. For some inexplicable reason, I found myself at a Justin Bieber concert. I was sitting off to the side with Bieber‘s mother (the woman who claims that both she and her son are “gifts from God”) and she was telling me how amazing her son is while the Biebs was performing on stage. There was a room full of adults with their tiny children and the little kids kept trying to crawl up onto the stage to get close to Bieber. Then, suddenly, Bieber was in my face and his mother was trying to introduce us … I was so trying to get away that I fell back off my chair onto the floor … and then I woke up. Ugh. Scary right?
