Paul Stanley’s Long-Lost Folgers Commercial

Here is the never-aired Folgers commercial featuring Paul Stanley that ultra conservative parent company, Proctor and Gamble shelved out of concern regarding being associated with KISS.

“This is your wake up call / Time to reach and go for it all / Folgers stirs inside of me and I know what I can be,” Stanley sings, coffee mug in hand. “Limit is the sky / Hey world, watch me fly / The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup.”

Stanley actually talked about the nixed Folgers ad in an interview. “Life is strange. I got a call asking if I was interested in singing a Folgers commercial. And like many other things, I thought “Why not?” Stanley said (via KISSanity). “I wasn’t at all concerned with who thinks it is okay or not okay, cool, not cool, rock & roll or not. I had a blast doing it and like I said, isn’t that what this is all about?”
