"Guns N Roses II" really made me laugh... so after listening to the Bombcast over the weekend, I started thinking what it would be like if bands approached things like some video game or movie producers and had bad sequels. Not sequels to albums, but sequels to the bands themselves - similar in name only, without original members, making bad knock-offs of the hit songs, etc

So I ended up trying to make a bad CD compilation style commercial, like from the 80s and 90s...

Holy. Fuck.

I thought this was going to be horrible. Good work.

This needs to be on the community spotlight, right?

This is shockingly not the worst thing in the world.

In fact it's quite the opposite.

@zombiepie, for your spotlighting consideration.

I guess the line on the podcast was original and not swiped from that SNL sketch where Farley said "How about Pearl Jam TWO???" as a band name, then. Solid work on the ad, sir.

Haha, That is a very good parody of the Album commercials you see on TV, and a very funny commercial for GnR II.

Where you did you get that footage of the perfect GNR tribute band for this sort of ad? And/or do you just have an extensive wardrobe department and make it yourself?

Thanks everyone. It's always fun when I get time to do ridiculous stuff like this.

@whitegreyblack I got karaoke versions of GnR songs, then sang dumb lyrics over them myself. Lots of places have those instrumental tracks for less than a few $. The DJ voices are from the games, and voice over I found of Stryker on Youtube. I did the graphic overlays and lower thirds in Photoshop - trying to simulate the look of those old VHS infomercial things. I based the announcer voice on those old commercials too. As stupid as it sounds, the thing that absolutely took the longest was making up derivative song names that were kinda funny and also really dumb at the same time.

@bisonhero That's a GnR tribute band called Guns 4 Roses I found on Youtube. I cut some footage up and messed with it until I got the look I wanted. I've played in bands for years, and I do music and video contract work, so I probably do have a bunch of clothing/props that I could use to film something like this. There's a surprisingly large amount of GnR tribute bands/people doing this kinda stuff on Youtube, so was no shortage of clips. Plus, this way was much less time consuming. :)

@samfo I agree, that Paradise section needs work. It would be cut down considerably (if not dropped) with review edits.

@ripelivejam Oh man, I must have somehow missed Jeff doing that. Would have been great to put in someplace.

@dudeglove Yep... Ghostbusters. :D
