Meat Loaf, the unmistakable voice of the cult 'Bat Out Of Hell' track/albums written by rock anthem maestro Jim Steinman, has died at the age of 74. The US romantic-rock superstar with the operatic voice and larger-than-life personality went against the tides, appearing in more than 50 films/TV shows alongside his eventful musical career, and in various commercials. We're happy to have discovered this 2015 ad starring the Loaf displaying his trademark refusal to take things too seriously by riffing off the famous 'I Won't Do That' phrase of Steinman's 'I Would Do Anything For Love' track, released in 1993. It's not the only one - we'd featured another product here on ADDS: https://addvertising.org/will-meat-loaf-change-his-name-to-veg-loaf. In this commercial, the singer born in Texas, USA as Marvin Lee Aday, is apparently wearing the wig he wore for his 2007/2008 tour - watch the whole ad to get the full humour. "The entire history of rock’n’roll is a comedy," said Meat Loaf in one interview. "Rock’n’roll was never meant to answer the questions of the universe. It’s a laugh. I’m a laugh." And a legend.
