Six Music Advertising Deals We'd Love to See

It's been a weird couple of weeks in the world of music-meets-advertising. Between Andrew W.K.'s announcement to speak at a My Little Pony convention and KISS' licensing deal with Family Guy, it's been pretty damn weird indeed. But think about it: A hard-partying My Little Pony would look great sitting on a shelf next to a Peter Griffin bobblehead decked out in Gene Simmons face paint. In fact, more artists need to get into the advertising game.

And of course, we're here to help.

Kanye West was already taken, but Axl Rose dominated a bunch of "douchey artists" lists, so here you go.

Snoop Dogg is an authority on marijuana, so the guy that "smokes weed everyday" would probably have some decent rolling papers recommendations. (Plus, we can't find any of the rolling papers he actually produced.)

Gotye is really mad about getting cut off in "Somebody That I Used to Know," but he should give Geico (and the cavemen, or the gecko, or whatever other character they are using now) a call before that road rage gets out of control.

Speaking of douches, LMFAO would fit right in at the Jersey Shore. "Get Crazy" is the show's opening theme and "I'm Sexy and I Know it" is just about as obnoxious and arrogant as The Situation bragging about his abs.

A few years ago, Glenn Danzig proved that he's just a regular guy that buys kitty litter like the rest of us, so why not be the new face of Fresh Step? It beats being the guy who called "Hugh Jackman as Wolverine gay."

"Fucking fiber, how does it work?"
