Is Billy Idol’s Ikea Rap Awesome or Scary? [VIDEO]

Billy Idol Raps for Ikea

We’re not entirely sure where this 2001 Ikea ad featuring Billy Idol rapping about being a rebel came from (or what it has to do with Swedish furniture), but we’re willing to bet the ’80s rocker wishes it would go away.

It’s not simply the inexplicable fact that Idol is shilling for IKEA, it’s also that he performs in a guttural talk/singing style that could only loosely be defined as “rap.”

What’s your opinion? Does Idol have a future career in hip-hop or are you too horrified and confused to produce a coherent thought?
