I saw this on TV and did a double-take.
Was that REALLY Elton John in a Snickers ad?
We've seen a lot of unlikely stars doing Snickers commercials (like Betty White, LIza Minelli and Aretha Franklin), but no one saw this coming-- Elton John in a rap battle commercial for Snickers. It totally caught me off guard, but he's obviously having fun with it.
That snickers commercial with Sir Elton John kills me every time 😂😂— marcus is what they calls me (@marky_mkfly) September 26, 2018
This commercial was HILARIOUS 😂Elton John at a rap battle was an excellent choice. Love Elton!— Ineligible Receiver (@chelley449) September 17, 2018
I liked the behind the scenes video almost as much as the commercial. Elton appears to be having fun. Everyone does.
However... some people are not amused.
The Snickers Ad is a Mistake— Paul Whitehead (@whiteheadpaulg) September 23, 2018
This was a disappointing ad. This places the classic Elton John on a negative light- regardless of whether he agreed to join in on this ad, it's so disrespectful & uncomfortable to see.— SUPYKUN (@supykoon) September 21, 2018
There are certain things that can be done, but shouldn't be. This is a prime example. 👎
