Stiltskin were a band invented
for a Levi's jeans commercial
wanted to use a Smashing Pumpkins
song for this ad, but couldn't get the rights to it, so instead they got together a bunch of session musician
s who recorded a song
) which sounded like
the Pumpkins song in question, but was not similar enough to provoke legal action
How do I know this? I was at university with a muso who was asked to be in Stiltskin but declined the offer.
