Earnhardt Jr. making cameo in Nickelback video

Dale Earnhardt Jr. wants to be a rock star, and soon, he will be.

The Dale Earnhardt Inc. driver is one of the celebrities appearing in the new Nickelback music video, "Rockstar." It's Earnhardt Jr.'s eighth appearance in a music video. This one debuted last week and is available on MTV.com.

"It's always cool to be in videos for big-time music artists, because it allows us to branch out and reach a whole group of people we might not reach through racing," Earnhardt Jr. said. "I really like Chad Kroeger and the guys from Nickelback. I met them in Richmond a few years ago. They were really cool then, and it was an honor to be asked to be in their latest video."

The video captures the everyday dreams of someone to be a rock star and includes a mix of actors, musicians and athletes in their own respective environments lip-syncing the lyrics to the song. Other celebrities appearing in the video include rapper/musician Kid Rock, former hockey standout Wayne Gretzky, Gene Simmons of Kiss, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, UFC fighter Chuck Liddell, the NBA's Grant Hill, musician Ted Nugent and Playboy's Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson.

GO HERE to see the video on MTV.COM. I thought it was pretty cool!!  Gets a thumbs up from me!!!  - Mike
