Does Anybody Care About a Billy Corgan Wrestling Video/Furniture Commercial? Me Either. [VIDEO]
Billy Corgan, lead singer and guitarist of the Smashing Pumpkins, is a huge wrestling fan. He even owns and runs Resistance Pro Wrestling in Chicago. And now he’s sold what was left of his alternative cred for a furniture sponsor.
I don’t know if this is supposed to be a commercial for the furniture store, or his wrestling thing, or what. But it’s pretty cheesy from beginning to end. Which is too bad because coming from a guy like Billy, who’s always held strong to his personal beliefs about his music, and other’s too, this sure seems like a real sell-out thing to do.
Billy, you can now have my Smashing Pumpkins records back. Well, except for “Gish”, “Siamese Dream”, and “Pisces Iscariot”, I’m keeping those. But everything else you can keep!
