Aerosmith screamer Steven Tyler really likes Burger King’s new crispy Chicken Strips. In fact, he likes them so much that he’s promoting them in a TV ad… and not some obscure TV ad seen only in Japan à la Lost in Translation, thus saving face with fans who might think it unseemly for a beloved rock star to be shilling fast food. Nope. Our man is pushing cheap and greasy chicken en Anglais.

As ads go, it’s OK. Better than most, actually: Tyler flirts with customers at the drive-through while sassing his boss and comically sending up his rocker image. But you have to wonder: just how much dough does this guy need? And wouldn’t his spare time be better spent finishing up thatlong-promised new Aerosmith studio album?
So see, Tyler must really, really like Burger King’s new crispy Chicken Strips because no sane person would ever do this. ‘Nuff said. By the way, the YouTube ad with the Spanish-language intro is included because the English version was disabled. Have fun!
