Guitar Hero Commercials Feature American Idol's David Cook and David Archuleta Re-Enacting Risky Business Scene

Men Without Pants! American Idol Busts a Guitar Hero Move

Watching these Guitar Hero spots with David Cook and David Archuleta each re-enacting the famous depantsed-Tom Cruise scene in Risky Business with the video game, it's pretty obvious why Cook was crowned American Idol. He really commits in this clip, ruling the lip-synced song, and showing off all his moves. I'm sure Simon would agree. I guess the ad did its job too — I totally want to go pick up my plastic guitar and unleash my inner rock star!

I will say that Archie's was cute. And while he can't pull the rockstar thing as well as David Cook can, they've both done better with the commercial than most regular people can. >__<

In David Archuleta's defense, he's suppose to be able to play Guitar Hero on expert level. Cook took acting/theatre in's his cup of tea.

I like both ads however Cook really rocks in that ad (plus he is hot to look at :love: . Since David A. is younger he had to wear boxers so it kinda ruined the idea (he is still cute.)

Cook's was just awesome and he totally sold the product. Archie's was just "Oh, look, he's pretending to be a rockstar."
