With Vince Neil gearing up for Motley Crue’s return to the streets this summer’s Stadium Tour (36 dates, over a million tickets sold so far, VIP ticket prices in excess of $1000), he may not be the first person you might turn to for advice payday loans.

But here we are. Neil has teamed up with the Dollar Loan Center, a Las Vegas-based short-term lender, for a new ad. The commercial was filmed at the Dollar Loan Center Arena in Henderson, Nevada, home of the local hockey team, the Silver Knights, and features Neil cruising the ice at the controls of a Zamboni.

The plot revolves around a futuristic “credit approval machine”. [named after The Cult’s Love Removal Machine? Perhaps we’ll never know], a large device staffed by a team of attractive technicians. Neil applies for a loan, accompanied by a song that says “Credit Approval Engine / Approvals Super Fast / Approvals Super Fast / Approvals“. Alarms ring, lights flash, and before you know it, Neil’s credit is approved, super quick, just like the song predicted.

If that doesn’t give you the confidence to seek credit, maybe Neil’s last statement will. “Yeeeeeah! Alright!” he calls and raises his arms triumphantly. “This credit approval machine Rock!

It’s not clear why Neil is seeking a payday loan.

The Stadium Tour with Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett and classless law, kicks off in Atlanta, Georgia next month and concludes in Las Vegas in September. Full dates below – tickets are on sale now.
