I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sick of Bon Jovi getting into all my Sports. It was fine when he just had his AFL Team because that was avoidable, but now he's creeping into MLB and the NFL, and TBS has just decided to use his song "I Love This Town" for their postseason promos. Here's your first look at the spot....
I guess it wasn't that bad. The song is okay, and the player appearances are fun, but it just goes on forever. Shorter versions will be played on TBS this month, but you might not want to go to the movies until after October. The version you just watched is going to be played as a preview before movies on over 11,500 movie screens across the country.
Oh and one more thing. Remember MLB's postseason commercial featuring Spanish from Old School? Well TBS is also getting on board with that campaign and will have the "stars" from their shows blogging about the Playoffs. Those stars include "Beautiful Girls" actor Timothy Hutton whose on some show called "Leverage", Bill Engval and you guessed it.....Frank Caliendo!
