Slash Featured In Zoo Commercial Alongside Betty White [VIDEO]
Legendary guitarist Slash has played and performed with pretty much every famous band and musician known to man. His career has reached a new height however, as he recently acted in a commercial for the Los Angeles Zoo alongside the lovely 90-year-old Betty White. The video can be seen below.
The unlikely pair shot the 31-second commercial for the zoo's new LAIR, or Living Amphibians, Invertebrates and Reptiles exhibit, which features over 60 species of weird and rare types. The exhibit opens on March 8.
Slash and White were the perfect picks for the commercial, according to the article:
A huge supporter of environmental welfare programs, Slash, 46, is a board trustee of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. At one point, the former Guns N' Roses guitarist kept an exotic snake collection in his Los Angeles area home, until the birth of his first son, London Emilio, in 2002 forced him to find new homes for his reptiles.
White also works closely with the Los Angeles Zoo. The zoo recently named their new baby orangutan Elka after White's character on 'Hot in Cleveland,' her TV Land sitcom. The actress also serves on the board of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, while Slash was honored by zoo officials last year for his contributions to the wildlife center.
I love both of these celebrities, and as weird as it was to see them together, it was pretty cool. They are both legends of their generations.
What do you think of the commercial?
