Max Weinberg and his kid Jay, who has stepped in for his dad for occasional E Street Band gigs, play together in the new TV campaign.

Max says, "It was great fun for me as a father to be loading up a van or a car and taking him to his own recording session - because it's something my father did and it's something that brought us even closer together and has continued to this day."

Jay, 27, is now the drummer in Slipknot and his dad couldn't be prouder of his son's success.

"Jay is an unbelievable drummer," he adds. "Two years in a row he's been named the best metal drummer out there. Slipknot have very dedicated fans and their music is intense, and I like intense music. It's complicated. I couldn't do it. I've seen him up close and I don't know how he does it... He's just a killer drummer and a great kid. It's so much fun for me to see him play."
