Odd couple alert: Justin Bieber and Ozzy Osbourne to star in Best Buy Superbowl ad
If you somehow hadn’t reached full Justin Bieber saturation yet, the Biebs will be making an appearance at the Superbowl, starring in a commercial with rocker Ozzy Osbourne for Best Buy. Yes, you read that correctly—according to the Daily Mail, the electronics retailer paid over $1 million (U.S.) for Stratford’s finest to appear in its ad.
Co-star Ozzy is an inspired choice considering his recent appearance on the talk show A Different Spin where, when asked if he listened to the teen pop star’s music, Ozzy remarked (as only Ozzy could), “Who the f*@! is Justin Bieber?” We’d like to know what rock he’s been hiding under so we can join him from time to time. That said, the commercial looks semi-awesome in a kind of ridiculous, over-the-top, only-during-the-Superbowl kind of way: Ozzy and Bieber dress in Tron-style suits hawking electronic gizmos in a futuristic setting. We hope it reaches the same highs as last year’s Snickers commercial starring Betty White playing football.
