Lenny Kravitz and James Franco suck at Guitar Hero Live in new ad

It’s not about playing well; it’s about looking good. That’s the impression given off by the latest ad for Guitar Hero Live, featuring Lenny Kravitz and James Franco.

Unfortunately, that’s not the case. You’ll still need to hit the prescribed notes and nail those solos if you want the admiration of your fans. But at least if you’re terrible at a song, Kravitz and Franco give us all hope that it's possible to enjoy the game and look like a rockstar. Winning over the crowd, however, will still take talent.

Guitar Hero Live will feature tracks from Passenger, Ed Sheeran, Pearl Jam, Megadeth, Blink 182, and Weezer, among others. Lenny Kravitz won’t feature on day one…and given his performance here, it’s not that surprising!

Guitar Hero Live will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on October 20th.
