Some 22 years after recording “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)”, Meat Loaf has explained what he won’t do for love … and it’s not giving up motorcycles.
The motorcycle fan appears in an advertising campaign for Scandinavian energy company St1 riding a motorcycle pursued by bomb-carrying bikies until he runs out of petrol and vows he won’t go into an unmanned service station.
It’s a reference to the fact that ST1 has 500 stations employs more than 2000 people in Sweden.
But a more interesting revelation is that the motorcycle fanatic doesn’t even ride and that’s quite evident in the video where he obviously has a stunt double perform all the riding.
The larger-than-life rock singer has long been associated with motorcycles.
Remember his famous 1977 hit “Bat out of Hell”? It’s all about a motorcycle crash and features a lead solo in which the roar of a bike is performed on guitar by Todd Rundgren.
