Billy Corgan: Wrestling For Furniture Commercial
Corgan, who launched the Resistance Pro Wrestling promotion company in 2011, stars in the comedic TV spot by Smithe, notorious for creating outlandish and pop culture-themed commercials (previous ads from the company have featured food celebrity Paula Deen and a Star Wars lightsaber battle with table lamps).
The new spot features Corgan calling on three Resistance Pro wrestlers to take on the Smithe brothers in a no-holds-barred match after a simple game of musical chairs goes awry.
Corgan and the Smashing Pumpkins were recently announced among the headliners of the inaugural Funshine Music Festival in Tampa Bay, Florida. The rock-heavy festival is scheduled for May 3-5, featuring Cheap Trick, Youngblood Hawke, Train, New Found Glory, Ted Nugent, the Wallflowers and more.
