MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman Vince Neil was recently asked to send a birthday message on Cameo, which lets users hire celebrities to record brief, personalized video messages about pretty much any topic.
What he ended up recording is a 25-second video which sees him totally fumbling his instructed lines, including quoting “Dr. Feelgood” and other MÖTLEY CRÜE classics.
The clip in question was posted on YouTube by a user named “Skunk’d Life,” who wrote in the accompanying description: “We hired Vince Neil of MÖTLEY CRÜE through a site called (www.cameo.com) to wish my younger brother a happy 40th birthday. I got my brother into the CRÜE when we were little and still to this day the CRÜE and esp Vince is his idol.
“You are given 250 characters of what you want the celebrity to say. and this is what we intended Vince to say:
‘Happy Birthday to Derek from Christian, Mom, Tanya, Ethan and Blake. Shout at the devil to start off this new decade and take the opportunity to kickstart your auto search and sales!! Listen to the Dr. and feelgood about the big 4-0 in 2020.’
“This video is what came out of him instead. We honestly find it hysterical and Vince if you’re seeing or reading this. We still love ya man!!! I’ll see ya 10th row in miami this summer !!!”
