There is some car commercial with The Who
's song "Bargain
" in it. You see the car racing
down the street and hear..
"I call that a bargain, the best I ever had....the best I ever had!"
but somehow they omit the part before that says...
"I'd pay any price just to get you
I'd work all my life and I will
To win you I'd stand naked, stoned and stabbed..."
hmm...the word "bargain" in the song is not meant literally. It's a love song (or a song about God, depending on whose side your on) about going through hell to get something. Not a message you want to send to car buyers.
And, wow, I just heard a Clarinex commercial with yet another Who tune...the overture from Tommy.
Maybe they should just use songs that were meant to be in commercials, like The Who Sell Out. hmm.
Also, I saw "Baba O'Riley" in a Ralph Lauren Polo commercial.
I guess Pete has to pay his son's college tuition somehow...
I mean, it's not like he has millions of dollars already...
also see: Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra, used in a Volkswagen commercial. But that's just kinda fancy, I think.
