Creed’s Scott Stapp talks ‘Creed’ the movie in a new Funny or Die video
The feature film “Creed” just hit theaters, the latest film in the “Rocky” franchise. The movie is about the son of Apollo Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan, and his training with Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa. Obviously, the film isn’t about the rock band Creed. This opened up a great opportunity for Creed singer Scott Stapp to make a few jokes, however.
In a new Funny or Die video, Stapp reviewed “Creed” for a fictional review show called “Can You Take Me to the Movies,” set to the music of Creed’s hit “Can You Take Me Higher?”
Right away, Stapp points out the “Creed” the movie doesn’t seem in line with Creed the band.
“As ‘Creed’ the movie unfolded, there wasn’t much that resembled what happened in Creed the band,” Stapp said in his review. “This movie has a lot of boxing. One time I punched a guy from 311 but I never actually boxed.”
He added, “Spoiler alert! ‘Creed’ the movie has no epic guitar solos played on a mountaintop!” And at no point does Creed sing on a steep cliff! That’s what we do best!”
Although Stapp is clearly not happy with “Creed” the movie’s depiction of Creed the band, Stapp gives “Creed” the movie four out of five “arms wide open.” Nice.
In other news, Stapp will hit the road on the North American leg of his Proof of Life solo trek.
