Dave Grohl Honors Canada in Crown Royal Super Bowl Ad
Dave Grohl is helping Crown Royal honor the many things Canada has given the world in the whiskey brand’s Super Bowl ad.
Grohl spends his time in the honor listing off the many unique contributions from Canada and its citizens. Among the things shouted out are Rush (obviously), the ironing board, the paint roller, the whoopee cushion and even football. (“Yeah! Look it up!” says Grohl to the latter item.)
If you listen closely to the Super Bowl ad, you can hear a rock version of Canada’s national anthem “O Canada.” That recording comes via Canadian guitarist Donna Grantis, who is best known for her work in Prince’s backing band 3rdeyegirl. Crown Royal shared a fun video capturing Grantis recording the anthem with Grohl behind the mixing board. Once Grantis is done shredding, both she and Grohl exchange very polite “thank yous.” Grohl then asks, “Hey! You wanna start a band?” Grantis enthusiastically responds, “I’m in!”
