According to Blabbermouth.net Aerosmith singer and "American Idol" judge Steven Tyler stars in a new Burger King commercial promoting the fast food chain's new hot-and-spicy chicken strips. In the 30-second spot, which can be seen below, Tyler works the drive-through greeting female customers with a "Welcome to Burger King, honey!" Steven "also Get(s) A Grip on a couple of female employees, slides across a counter on his butt and rejects a manager's command to wear a hairnet." Burger King's Senior Vice President of North America Marketing, Alex Macedo, told that the commercial was created to grab attention to the company's menu expansion. "The big challenge is how do you really grab people's attention?" Macedo said. "And most of all, how do you get them to taste the product? We chose [Tyler as one of the] celebrities to get people's attention faster and to show the diversity that we have with our brand."

    He's like Krusty of The Simpsons, he'll put his name on a food for cash and act like he likes it, then when the camera cuts he spits it into the nearest garbage can.

    He needs to do this commercial holding the sandwich in his hands and having "I don't wanna miss a thing" playing in the background.

    OK maybe selling out was bad phrasing, but still everything this guy has done since American Idol is super lame. He totally lost the oldschool rocker style and turned into a lil bitch.

    I caught it yesterday and I also thought it was pretty humorous. Being follicly challenged myself, I found the line where he tells the manager to get some hair particularly funny.

    LOL, that was actually quite funny, hahahahaha. Last time I laughed so hard at a commercial was when Ozzy did one for Samsung...

Because we all know that if BK approached you and said "We'll give you all of this money if you star in our commercial" you would turn it down. What's worse than a "sell out"? A ****ing hypocrite.
    Hmmmmm actually if ive been a famous rockstar for many years, toured the world, banged a bunch of broads, done a lotta drugs, and made more money then i can count, and then BK asked me to do it? Ya id turn it down haha suck that

    I remember watching this at my Grandma's house. She made the comment, "I hope the food isn't as old and disgusting as him." Oh lord, my Grandma is the craziest. XD

    Best Quotes of the commercial, love the fact he has the feathers hanging from this drive-thru headset. "Wow who's that talking?" "You need a hair net, Tyler" "You need to get some hair, John" One would think Steven Tyler wouldn't need the cash but the amount of cocaine required to sustain life in his body costs $60,000 a day!

    you guys are a bunch of holy rollers. What the hell is wrong with making money. Did the beatles try to make money, do new bands try to make money? Get over it, the commercial is funny, and Steve Tyler is still cool for an old guy.

    I like the idea but if I hear that song one more time I'll shoot myself. You can thank the dentist office for that.

    Steven Tyler some time in the late 1980s had something traumatic happen to him. Since then he's been the George Lucas of the music industry.

    Well, his last shred of dignity has been gone for a while - who really cares. Steven Tyler is not a rockstar anymore - he's just a hollywood celeb. Celeb wants cash, celeb gets cash. Natural order of things.

    No! A lot of people saw the humor in it, I hope. It was a pretty funny commercial, and he didn't really act any different than he probably normally would lol.

    Well, I thought it was funny. I hate the word sell out. Let the artist do what they want to do.

    So, I've been seeing this commercial for a while, and it shows up on UG today? Why doesn't this surprise me? I've seen it so many times it doesn't even count as news in the slightest.
