I was just watching TV and some commercials came on. One was for some diaper brand and the background music was a song that Lizardfish covers. I tried to play along but it was only 30 seconds long and I didn’t get my guitar case open in time.
I think I need a band practice.
The next commercial used a David Bowie song. I don’t know if it was the original version or a cover/sound alike deal but if it was the original it means I just heard Robert Fripp in a television commercial. It made me kinda throw up in my mouth a little bit. There was a lawsuit recently where the Bowie estate tried to remove Fripp’s name from the rights to the song. I wonder if this is the reason, or just a result.
One last thing about TV commercials. I am getting a little sick (furious) over companies trying to market to the quarantine. Burger King… really? A tax prep company that made their add look like it was shot on a web cam? They are so the same as us, right? I guess all that federal bailout money gives them all the money they’ll ever need to use people dying as a marketing plan, am I right or am I right?
