Video: Brett Ratner's Funny "Guitar Hero" Ad

Posted: October 30th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: Brett RatnerSubmit Comment
Back in September, director Brett Ratner (X-Men 3, Rush Hour) revealed that he would love to make a "Guitar Hero" movie, but Activision would not let him. That's a shame, because he was convinced that he would get his way, stating "I have a deal with Activision for their branding."

Well, it turns out that the deal does not go beyond Ratner making commercials for the video game. And while we won't be getting an unnecessary movie, we now have a pretty funny commercial. It features Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, Michael Phelps and Tony Hawk doing their best impressions of Tom Cruise from "Risky Business." I love how Hawk slides in on a skateboard.

What do you think of this ad?

I saw this ad on YouTube the other day, and I thought it was hilarious.

Unfortunately, Brett Ratner's film-making expertise doesn't seem to go beyond the "funny commercial" level.

I love Guitar Hero, but I'm glad they're limiting him to commercials.

uh huh...Soooo...How come they never got a high school kid to direct it? Usually I defend Ratner, but the whole spot relies on whether or not you find these icons funny while playing Guitar Hero...and we don't. The humour comes from the intro ripping off Risky Business ...and the rest is simply silly crap. All the money these guys have made off of this and they rent a camera crame, dolly...any other convention besides a handheld shoulder cam?

Guitar hero is lame, the guitar is designed so poorly, rock band is really more superior in many ways, but this is a great commercial
