It can be done

I’m not sure how I feel about this commercial. On the one hand, it’s taking a classic rock song and filling it with Go Phone copy points. But on the other hand, the spot totally works. It has two things going for it:

1)The Song. There’s a reason Paradise by The Dashboard Light is a classic. It’s a great song AND incredibly catchy.

2)Meat Loaf. Seriously, does this guy ever phone it in? He’s doing a Go Phone commercial for god’s sake. And he’s belting it out like he’s on stage in ’77.

I’m the end, I guess I really like this commercial. I don’t really want to see all of my favorite songs turned into commercials. But hey, if you’re going to do it, do it right.
