(What can I say, the bitches go crazy for a dude who can blog)
In a clever bit of multi-platform, synergistic marketing web 2.0, Marvel is basically putting their name on an AC/DC greatest hits album and calling it “AC/DC: Iron Man 2.” Set to release nine days before the movie in April, it features “15 classic AC/DC songs selected from ten of the band’s studio albums, ranging from 1976 to 2008.”
To promote the announcement, they released this music video featuring some footage from Iron Man 2 — mostly from a Stark Expo scene featuring pyrotechnics and dancing girls in Iron Man costumes — cut with AC/DC doing “Shoot to Thrill.” I’ll be honest, I was all set to call AC/DC whores and make fun of Marvel for passing over Black Sabbath (whose most famous song is called Iron Man forcrissakes), but once those opening chords kicked in, before I knew it I’d lit my trashcan on fire and was flashing my tits at my laptop screen. FIIIIIYAAAAAAHHHH!!!
