Okay, NOW we have a legit reason to go picket all upcoming Ozzy Osbourne concerts.

Just when you thought you heard it all, the Prince of Darkness has decided to star in a Best Buy commercial that will air during the Super Bowl... with at his side teen heartthrob and beloved internet hate figure Justin Bieber.

Best Buy - the largest home electronics chain in the USA - marketing chief Drew Panayiotou said that Justin Bieber "symbolically represents something important to the brand message." Executives won't discuss details of the 30-second spot featuring stars from two very different generations. The ad, to air in the game's third quarter, was filmed earlier this month at Universal Studios.

Best Buy declined to say what it's paying Bieber. But it's at least $1 million, estimates Noreen Jenney Laffey, president of Celebrity Endorsement Network, which links celebs with advertisers.




Oh Ozzy



Stomach-churning Neat pictures taken during the shooting of the futuristic advertisement can be watched over here.

So... who else is not surprised?


anyone who is surprised is clueless. he was in a commercial with the Osmonds several years ago, ffs.


Exactly. It's not like you wouldn't expect Ozzy (i.e. Sharon) to miss out on yet another chance to make money. Now if Alice Cooper would make a commercial with the singer of Tokio Hotel, that would be a completely different story.

Whoops, what do we have here?

That is the gayest crap I've ever seen. The TH singer looks like a girl.




First he sold his soul to rock n roll, now what?

True, but that was around the time of St Anger. I like to think that band was not Metallica


What was around the time of St. Anger? I didnt have internet access at the time of St. Anger. What band wasn't Metallica? Ive seen anti-Beiber comments on music videos from just about every non-teenybopper pop genre. From rock videos, to extreme metal ones, you'll find idiots directing hate to Beiber. And if it's not him, it's the Jonas Bros getting slated. Its rare for me to come across any youtube video now, without seeing some lame, anti-Beiber comment.

Yeah, you can't see a music video without reading JB's name. It's sooooo annoying. If they hate him so much why do they keep talking about him? They're just making him more famous.
And worse is the so called "metal militia" who plans attacks on JB's videos. Pathetic.

Black Conundrum - 27.01.2011 at 07:09  
I don't have a good first impression on this commercial. It may have been Sharon's idea, because it is not uncharacteristic of her. I aslo am far from partial toward Justin Bieber.

By the way, I just realized something frivolous yet noteworthy: JB stands for both Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber. Is it a coincidence... or is it a conspiracy ?

If you have not been thrown in a truck with a bag over your head by now, we can assume its safe. For now.

They are just making him more famous, which is the hilarious irony of it. I had never heard of Justin Bieber, until I started seeing his name pop up in the comments on just about every music video on youtube I watched. So it was actually the anti-Bieber brigade that made me aware of his existence in the first place! Oh, and that "metal militia" thing is the proof that some metal fans really are total dumbasses.

Fuck. You.

Ozzy is a legend but by this point he's also essentially got learning difficulties. You think Ozzy chose this? hell no his management did Ozzy just see's that he'll get paid for it and signs, or rather is told to sign it.

Also you can swear on the internet, your mum won't read it.

"Who the fuck is Justin Bieber?" asks Ozzy

"Who the fuck is Ozzy Osbourne?" asks Justin

"What the fuck is going on there?" asks Ellrohir...seriously - i believe only very few of us would refuse to take money in order to remain "true"...i say honestly i wouldnt...is there anyone who dares to swear he would?

Headline we would all like to see.

"Ozzy bites the head off a twat"

Also doesn't Ozzy's face look a bit altered. I see the work of Sharon's plastic surgeon.

Ozzy is the most overrated vocalist in metal, worst vocal of Black Sabbath ever, I like any album of Black Sabbath that does not have Ozzy in it, and he became a puppet show of mainstream pop culture and estamblishment, MTV dark play doll, who just makes most of the metal fans laugh at him. Some people simply do not know when it's time to retire. Btw his manager is his wife so, that's another minus ...

So you don't like Black Sabbath, Vol IV, Paranoid, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath or Sabotage? If you're being serious then you're incredibly retarded. Almost as much as ozzy.
necrovamp - 27.01.2011 at 23:30  
Its an advert. it lasts 30 seconds. if you don't like it don't watch it. if you don't like just beiber don't listen to him. if you don't like ozzy don't listen to him. Concentrate on what you do like instead of what you hate. hating is a pointless waste of energy. it takes less energy to ignore leaving more energy to listen to the stuff you like.

Looking at those outfits, maybe Ozzy has an evil scheme for JB all along: Sending him up into Dead Space.
Dark Cornatus - 28.01.2011 at 01:01  
Wow some of these comments are ignorant. Give the guy a break! He made music for years before all this crap. He's making money, so what? It's a good thing for him. I would do it if i were offered a commercial. I don't even care about JB. If no-one bitched about him, i would never have known him in the first place. If he made money singing crap, good for him.

It's not that big a deal.. Early, classic Black Sabbath is untouchable, and some of Ozzy's solo material has also been great - but nowadays, as others have suggested, he's kind of a media pawn. He may come across as a bit of a tool nowadays in some ways, but he doesn't deserve any real hate IMO.

Nothing necessarily wrong with making a commercial, either. Some commercials involving aging Metal 'gods' can be fucken great, such as the recent advert for Kronenbourg lager which features Motorhead playing 'Ace of Spades' in a laid-back, bluesy style, which is actually pretty cool!

You are pretty much spot on. I just don't see how Ozzy's media choices should affect peoples opinions of him. It's like when people heard St Anger from Metallica for the first time. So many fans began to hate Metallica for it just from that album. I mean, you don't need to say you hate them, just you didn't like their music for a particular period or album. The same goes for Ozzy and how he is, as you describe, a 'media pawn' in his later years in life.

You also have to remember that modern bands will eventually age, and band members will do the same thing (perhaps not as bad as Ozzy... but maybe not?) and make ads etc. We could be seeing Mikael Ackerfelt (hate trying to spell his name) in a few decades advertising for an insurance company haha.

Exactly. People who hate Ozzy are bigger tools than he himself can sometimes come across. lol

Lemmy has actually been in commercials on British tv before! One for Kit-Kat, and a hilarious one for Walkers Crisps.

i will never deny it, and many people need to wake up and see that "trveness" is merely a way to look better with your peers, but then again metalheads are so not trendy and never bow down to fads!

still, i don't really know why Ozzy would do it, he already has more than enough money to live 3-4 very comfortable lives. maybe he was bored? who the hell knows

Exactly! Hehe, I remember both those ads, it was amusing to see them again! I like how Lemmy can do that kind of thing, given his reputation for being a 'bad-ass' he can show a dry sense of humour or send himself up without being seen as a 'sell-out' or whatever.

I can almost imagine that!! It's an interesting time in Metal with regards to bandmember's ages.. Will Opeth still be around in the 2020's, with Mikael being a famous name like Ozzy or Lemmy? Who knows!

I can certainly imagine Dani Filth doing something of that nature in a couple of decades, promoting cosmetics for aging goths.. "Because you're worth it"!

As soon as you mentioned the new ad with Motorhead in it, (which is in fact awesome, as is the bluesy rendition of Ace Of Spades! xD) those classic Lemmy ads immidiately sprang into my head. Sad, I know.. hehee :O

I never saw Lemmy as being a sellout for doing those ads, or appearing on "Never Mind The Buzzcocks". lol I think it would be hard for him to do anything now that could make anyone class him as a sell out. Apart from maybe playing on "The X Factor", or appearing on "Strictly Come Dancing". Not that I could ever see either happening in a month of Sundays!
