Bootsy in a Pontiac ad!

  1. Has anyone seen this commercial? It goes something like "When Bootsy Collins plays the bass, you feel the funk... He can make such a simple motion into soul". All the while they show clips of him playing bass and show off the Pontiac Grand Am (?) 2004. The slogan is something about the car having soul. All I know is it was pretty cool!

    That's kind of sad, actually. I am so sick of celebrity endorsements. It's out of hand these days, and getting worse all the time.

    I guess that's pretty cool, but the thing that would be REALLY cool would be if Pontiac made little metalic Bootsies and had them be the new hood ornament for all their cars. C'mon, think about it! Bootsy was genetically engineered for something like that. Pontiac would have some great new slogans too-
    "It's all good when Bootsy's on yo' hood" or
    "This car got the funk from the hood to the trunk."
    Aw yeah, baby...

    or a Bootsy Collins model.

    inlayed rhinestones and lights all over the car just like his "Star" bass. Comes with a free set of Star Sunglasses.
