This Is What MOTLEY CRUE Were Teasing For Super Bowl Sunday
Hey, so remember a few weeks ago when Motley Crue posted a tweet teasing something for February 3rd. In case you need a reminder, this was the tweet:

At the time, we were like what the hell do these emojis mean? Could it be a tease for the trailer for their upcoming movie, The Dirt? Nope, turns out it was a very literal tease for a peanut commercial.
Yes, Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" will be featured in a Planters commercial during the Super Bowl, which will also feature cameos from Charlie Sheen and baseball star Alex Rodriguez. The ad is already up:
MetalSucks notes that this same song was featured in a 2012 Super Bowl commercial for Kia.
I am actually pretty bummed because I was hoping we'd finally get a sneak peak at The Dirt.
The cast for The Dirt was announced earlier this year: Rapper Machine Gun Kelly has been cast as drummer Tommy Lee, English actor Douglas Booth has been cast as bassist Nikki Sixx, Daniel Webber (The Punisher) was cast as Vince Neil, and Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones) is Mick Mars. There will be an actor portraying Ozzy Osbourne in the movie as well, actor Tony Cavalero.
Crue have been working on new songs with longtime producer Bob Rock, to be released as a companion EP to the movie. The band are also teasing some big surprise on the EP.
