There's the Nissan commercial with the old Who hit "Won't Get Fooled Again." None of the vocals are actually used, but some lyrics that immediately come to mind are:
"Here comes the new boss
Same as the old boss"
This doesn't exactly inspire confidence that the new model will be any better than the older ones; and
"I get down on my knees and pray
That I won't get fooled again!
This one's not too comforting to current or former Nissan owners looking to buy a brand new one.
Then there's a Target ad that I saw while watching the 2001 Grammy Awards. It uses Devo's "It's a Beautiful World" to sell cleaning supplies (Windex, toilet paper, and diapers) and uses the lyrics of the chorus to great effect:
"It's a beautiful world ... for you"
Knowing the song as well as I do rather spoils the intent of the ad. I always have to add the line they cut out of the song
"....But not for me.
