Yes there was done under Bon Jovi the band and they did say Duracell was the battery used by Bon Jovi on tour.

This is Jon Bon Jovi the man and he is saying this is the pain reliever he uses. There is a difference between the band and the man; however there have been other commercials over the years that the man has done...Mitsubishi and Coke..come to mind, but I don't remember Jon actually saying on either of those they he used the products.

That statement comes from Advil. Perhaps they are not familiar with the past history of the band or perhaps they are referring to first as in Jon solo.

I know the song The Distance was used in a Japanese beer commercial, but I don't know if any of the band members appeared in the commercial or endorsed the product as one they use. The band also did a Sony commercial years ago...during SSW era or perhaps New Jersey.

Who cares???? I read this story and then took a massive dump. Is JBG still supporting The Savior, or did he jump off that train wreck?
