Halfiax's advert pissing on Cab Calloway's Mimmy the Moocher. That makes me so angry, I want to go to the nearest branch and barf over the cashiers.

Wow, I never would have guessed in the wake of Blues Brothers that anyone would ever get mileage out of "Moocher" again.

But they still got a lot of mileage out of Minnie Mazola.

Another one that sticks in my head is the starbucks one.

Glen. Glen, Glen, Glen. Glen, Glen, Glen.

I get a kick out of it when my favorite obscure songs land in Truck and Perfume adds.

Massive Attack's Angel was done well in an Armani ad in early 2000; and the Black Keys' Have Love, Will Travel, and Set You Free are both getting exposure on Nissan some truck ads right now.[/i]

not a pop song really, but I just saw an advert for the Real McCoys crisps using 'You're the best around' from Karate Kid!

It's not a bastardization, but using "Sweet Home Alabama" in Kentucky Fried Chicken commercials makes no sense.

Yeah, maybe when they get sick of SHA, they can advertise Uncle Bucket with "Georgia on my Mind"

Perhaps Video Aces could do the ad – I wonder if the Swanky Modes are busy?

Is that Roscoe? Excellent. Ok, you have shamed me into realizing that more than 3 people on this Earth saw Tapeheads.


Ah, but did anyone else own the Tapeheads LP?

So sure are you.


Yeah, you're probably right. But it was instrumental in putting together a mix tape including "Ordinary Man" and "Baby Doll".

resurrecting this thread because I just heard Magic Bus used in a Nissan Quest commerical (their new minivan). I must go shower and scrub myself with a steel-bristled brush now......

I heard something on the radio today that was a perversion of Smashmouth's Allstar (which itself is a perversion) that I think was for Crapplebee's.

Heard on the radio some Any Way You Want It ad for Toyota. Ugh.

This was bottomed by Sirius redoing It's the End of the World as we Know it into an ad showcasing pay radio features. My respect for REM is now negative.

It's so terrible. It's like if you condensed all the Applebee's commecials into one.
