    Default ADKOT TV Commercial (Best Buy)

    Didn't see another thread about this and don't know if it's been mentioned in any other threads, so I'm taking my chances. Honey badger don't give a shit if it gets locked, he knows how it rolls around here.

    So I'm sitting down to dinner with a nice unhealthy portion of fried clams and go to turn on the TV. Switch over to Animal House on VH1Classic, of course. As I change channels, I see B & W footage of a train that reminds me of the ADKOT cover. I hold the face for a few seconds, and sure enough it's an ad for the new album for Best Buy. Not sure if anyone else has seen it yet, but seeing a full =VH= ad on the idiot box was pretty cool to me.

    BTW, the clams were excellent.

    Wonder if Best Buy will have any exclusives with the purchase of the album as they often do?

    Van Halen has this cult/religious following thing going on, wherein music journalists (who are usually clueless) and genuine fans and musicians (who should know better) respect this band musically. The reality is far different...

    First, every record this band has done since "Fair Warning" is complete crapp. Given that "Fair Warning" was released in April of 1981, that is 23 years of junk now boys........One of the BEST Post EVER!!!!

    I cannot believe I've just seen ADKOT advertised on the Sky Sports News channel here in the UK. It calls them 'legendary', Eddie 'the world's greatest guitarist' and Dave 'the world's best frontman'. I know we here on the forums know this already but in 25+ years as a fan I cannot remember ever seeing VH advertised on TV here in Blighty. I'm so excited for Monday. Viva Van Halen!

    That's cool to hear. The bands management are CLEARLY testing the waters and/or planning something for you guys.

    Saw it today on VH1 Classic while I was watching That Metal Show (guests Michael Sweet, Jani Lane, and Taime Downe; Phil Collen was the guest guitar player).

    With all this promotion, it is very evident that Interscope feels strongly about the album. Watch it go gold the first week out, that would be crazy.

    It wouldn't be too crazy, it's a great album.
