Dodge has teamed with Motley Crue as the sponsor of their Final Tour run, at the same time putting the band's adrenaline-fueled classic "Kickstart My Heart" into action for their latest commercial that's titled "Just Kidding," Loudwire reports.
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 Hemi 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.
"The 2015 Dodge Charger and Challenger are the ultimate American muscle cars, just as the much-anticipated Motley Crue Final Tour is the ultimate high-octane music event of the summer," notes Dodge/Chrysler president and CEO Tim Kuniskis in a press release.
Motley Crue are currently in the midst of their North American tour supported by Alice Cooper and newcomers The Raskins.
