Axl Rose Cameo In World Cup Commercial

Posted June 17th, 2014 @ 3:24pm

This commercial is airing during select games of the World Cup.

In additional to Axl Rose, MMA fighter Anderson Silva also make an appearance.


A soccer stadium turns into a concert with the tag line, "In the World Cup, boys, you are the rock stars." Famous footballers the Hulk from Brazil, Gary Cahill from England, Samuel Eto'o from Cameroon and Yoshida from Southampton, England proceed to pick up instruments and form a rap-rock band to play "Paradise City" with revamped, soccer-specific lyrics. "Take me down to the Paradise City, where the grass is green and the ball is queen," the rapper says. But it's OK that they changed the lyrics, because during the second go-around, Rose raises a beer to the band.
