We all gotta start somewhere and Brian Johnson was no different. But could you ever imagine the legendary AC/DC frontman singing a jingle for TV commercial advertising a vacuum cleaner? Me neither but that’s exactly what happened. The year was 1980 and he was just starting and needed some cash. Apparently, around the same time he auditioned for the AC/DC lead singer job, he also auditioned for the jingle singing job. Just before AC/DC hired him, the Hoover Vacuum cleaner company hired him to rock the vocals in their TV commercial. And you know what? It sounds damn cool! CLICK HERE to check it out.
