Are You Ready for Best Buy, Bieber and the Blizzard of Ozz?

We mentioned this briefly yesterday, but why not take a closer look. When the Prince of F*cking Darkness aligns with the Prince of Annoying Haircuts for a Tron-themed Best Buy Super Bowl Ad, we’re going to take notice. I mean, look at that picture. What could possibly be going on?

Any further questions will have to be directed toward the strange minds at CP+B and director Bryan Buckley. While the ad, Best Buy’s first ever to air during the Super Bowl, has yet to be released online (credits and final tweaks are still being worked out according to Crispin), we can only assume it features Ozzy Osbourne and Justin Bieber racing on those motorcycles from Tron to a Girl Talk-helmed mash-up of “Baby” and “Crazy Train” with the narrator saying something along on the lines of, “At Best Buy, your pop culture fetishes don’t have to make any sense. Best Buy: It’s relatively cheaper here.” Then cue J-Biebs crooning “ooh” and Ozzy mumbling “F*cking motorcycles.”

How about it, Crispin? Did we prematurely blow your wad for you? I guess we’ll find out Super Bowl Sunday. Until then, there’s a photo gallery from the ad shoot after the jump.
