Cinderella Frontman Tom Keifer Reminisces About ‘Pat’s Chili Dogs’ Commercial

When you’re a band looking for a big break, you’ll take what you can get. But one of Cinderella‘s early decisions has come back to haunt them thanks to the wonderful world of the Internet.

Cinderella reached great heights in the ’80s and early ’90s with three platinum albums, including two that went triple platinum. But when they were first starting out, they were looking for some decent exposure. That came when they agreed to do a local commercial for Pat’s Chili Dogs.

When we had Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer stop by, we just had to ask him what led the band to film the low-budget commercial, which is now getting some laughs after being shared on YouTube. Heck, we even featured it as one of the 11 Funniest Heavy Metal Commercials in the compilation below.

Watch the video above to find out why Cinderella filmed the commercial, as well as the unique way they were compensated for their efforts. And stay tuned after the interview to watch the entire ‘Pat’s Chili Dogs’ commercial at the end of the video.
