A few weeks ago, we let you see the new 30 second Woolite commercial  shot and directed by Rob Zombie. Well, now the rock community is shouting "Sell Out". Obviously, Mr. Black Sunshine is none to happy about these allegations.

In a recent Iinterview with Cp24.com, Rob Zombie explains and defends his decision to do the commercial.

Rob tells Cp24 "I hadn't even thought about (a fan backlash), it hadn't crossed my mind.

"Whenever anyone talks about selling out it's the most absurd statement anyone could make. I've never done anything I didn't want to do, to me selling out is changing your music, your image, everything based on some sort of corporate manipulation to become rich and famous. I've never done that.

"When someone says I've sold out I say, 'What do you do for a living?' and maybe they'll say, 'Oh, I work at Walmart.' So they're corporate whores for the largest corporation in the world but have the nerve to (call me a) 'sell-out?"'

Zombie says he truned down several requests to shoot the Woolite commmercial because of scheduling conflicts.

"I like doing different things, I did an episode of 'CSI: Miami' because I wanted to see what it was like to do a TV show and now a commercial; you want to get these things under your belt," he said.

Personally, I think the commercial is cool as hell, and applaud his discision to break out of his norm to try something new. What do you think...is Rob Zombie a sellout for doing this commercial?
