Vintage Ads Of Rock and Rollers Selling Stuff Other Than Their Souls

These days when a rock star sells out to a car manufacturer or Pepsi Cola my respect for them is diminished, particularly whenever they’re an artist I revere. But these ads from the Sixties make sense, if you’re going to sellout, at least sellout to the things that got you where you are. John Lennon shilling for Rickenbacker is hip.

The Clash for Pontiac, not so much.

Via Dangerous Minds, Via Voices Of East Anglia

  1. Dude, the Clash shilled for cars? It must have been after Joe was gone.
