Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has brought his well-known love of professional wrestling to a humorous TV ad for hometown Chicago furniture supplier Walter E. Smithe.

Corgan, who launched the Resistance Pro Wrestling promotion company in 2011, stars in the comedic TV spot by Smithe, notorious for creating outlandish and pop culture-themed commercials (previous ads from the company have featured food celebrity Paula Deen and a Star Wars lightsaber battle with table lamps).

The new spot features Corgan calling on three Resistance Pro wrestlers to take on the Smithe brothers in a no-holds-barred match after a simple game of musical chairs goes awry.

Corgan and the Smashing Pumpkins were recently announced among the headliners of the inaugural Funshine Music Festival in Tampa Bay, Florida. The rock-heavy festival is scheduled for May 3-5, featuring Cheap Trick, Youngblood Hawke, Train, New Found Glory, Ted Nugent, the Wallflowers and more.
