Watch Billy Idol Cash in With New Bank of America Commercial
Look out! Here comes Billy Idol as the new face of Bank of America in the company's latest commercial. The clip is part of its Preferred Rewards program for customers, and follows similar ads that lead up to Idol's starring spot.
When we first tune in, we see Idol in the recording studio singing the classic "more, more, more" refrain from his 1983 hit "Rebel Yell." The Bank of America staff interrupts him, prompting him to sing the line a total of 25 times.
Turns out that the bank's customers get "25 percent, or more, bonus rewards on eligible credit cards." Idol, a bit befuddled by the request, tosses his headphones to the floor and then exits the studio.
The Rebel Yell album was released in the fall of 1983 and spawned the Top 10 hit "Eyes Without A Face," as well as the title track. His latest record, Kings & Queens of the Underground, was released last year and found its way into the Top 10. It marked Idol's first album of new material in a decade.
