Judas Priest Song Pops Up in an Unlikely Place
Metal and minivans? Those used to seem like mutually exclusive entities. However, vehicle manufacturer Honda and metal warriors Judas Priest are working in concert to erase genre boundaries and redefine the concept of cool with Honda’s commercial for the 2011 Odyssey. model
Judas Priest’s ‘The Hellion’ is blaring in the background while a reformed rocker/soccer dad leaves a mini mart cradling a bag of groceries. He then envisions pyro going off and a Marshall amp tucked in the trunk of this sleek driving machine. The commercial certainly suggests that one needn’t hang up the bullet belt or start listening to adult contemporary rock in order to succumb to suburbia!
