Jon Bon Jovi Gets A Pumpkin Tribute for Halloween
Professional pumpkin carver Jon Neill is out of his gourd for Jon Bon Jovi, and in the Halloween spirit he is sharing a special time-lapse video of a special Jack-O-Lantern created in the artist's honor.
The 46 second video -- created to promote a forthcoming Bon Jovi tour date in Las Vegas for AXS.com -- is set to Bon Jovi hits "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "It's My Life." In the clip, Neill transforms a pumpkin into the likeness of the New Jersey rock star, complete with his trademark smile.
Neill, the champion of the Food Network's third season of Halloween Wars, is a freelance artist specializing in concept design, illustration, specialty prop, creature and costume creation for television and feature films, as well as sculpting for the toy industry, museum exhibits, television and feature films. His work has appeared in The Hunger Games, Looper, Smurfs, Spiderman, Green Hornet, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and the 2010 version of A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Neill's work spans over 25 years, dating back to Michael Jackson's 1996 short film, Ghosts. He was also featured in a commercial for Snickers. In addition to Bon Jovi, Neill has created other rocking pumpkins, including a replica of the Van Halen logo last year.
Bon Jovi will release their new album, This House is Not for Sale, on Nov. 4.
