GUNS N' ROSES Singer AXL ROSE Makes Cameo In Budweiser World Cup Commercial

GUNS N' ROSES frontman Axl Rose makes a cameo in a new Budweiser World Cup commercial, which can be seen below. Seconds into the two-and-a-half-minute video, you see a familiar-looking bodyguard, who is in fact Brazil's beloved UFC legend Anderson Silva. Shortly after, a band comprised of Gary Cahill, Samuel Eto'o and Hulk — professional footballers who will be participating in the World Cup — takes to the stage and performs a "rap" version of the GN'R classic "Paradise City". As the track comes to an end, Hulk lobs a guitar pick into the crowd. Surrounded by a few models, Rose catches the pick and uses it to open his Budweiser. In recognition of the footballers' performance, Axl raises his Budweiser in toast.

Another GUNS N' ROSES classic, "Sweet Child O' Mine", was featured in an advertising campaign last year by health-products giant Johnson & Johnson. A soft, baby-friendly version of the song was the musical backdrop to the company's first corporate branding campaign in more than 10 years.

GUNS N' ROSES will release "Appetite For Democracy 3D: Live From The Hard Rock Casino - Las Vegas" on July 1 via Universal Music Enterprises. The show was filmed on November 21, 2012 during the "Appetite For Democracy" tour in celebration of twenty-five years of "Appetite For Destruction" and four years of "Chinese Democracy".

In addition sole original member Axl Rose, the current lineup of GUNS N' ROSES includes guitarists Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Richard Fortus and DJ Ashba, bassist Tommy Stinson, keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman and drummer Frank Ferrer.
