L.A. Marathon Invaded By Slash Look-A-Likes


March 3, 2008

Did you catch these guys and gals in full Slash regalia making the 26.2 mile trek through the city today? Here’s the official explanation of the eccentric marathon attire and attitude:

Today’s LA Marathon was invaded by rocker Slash look-a-likes, who competed in the race for Gibson Guitar as part of a worldwide launch for the Velvet Revolver guitarist’s new signature model Gibson and Epiphone guitars which will go on sale in limited quantities on April 1, 2008. Fifty Slash look-a-likes donned wigs, top hats, t-shirts, sunglasses and even the signature cigarette prop in the “Dash for Slash,” encouraging onlookers to “Shred like Slash” on April 1st.

Check out the Slash-ers crossing the finish line after the jump.
