GUNS 'N ROSES: Axl Makes Cameo in World Cup Ad


A new World Cup commercial features the Guns n’ Roses song “Paradise City,” some famous soccer players and a cameo from Axl Rose himself.

The Budweiser ad -- which is on YouTube -- imagines the players as rock stars performing a rap version of "Paradise City" with lyrics related to soccer. As the commercial ends, one of the players throws a guitar pick into the crowd that is caught by Rose. He uses the pick to open his Bud and toasts the band.
