Chase is all over the place, musically: they're also using Matthew Wilder, "Break My Stride".

Sounds like they're trying to catch the ears of as many generations as they can. They've got the 70s (Pilot), 80s (Wilder) and 90s (Elastica) all represented. Any 60s tunes showing up in this campaign?
Let's get right to it.

WLNG's Bob Shannon just wondered aloud why "Great Balls of Fire" was never used to flog Cruex. LOL!

Hey man, Rainbow Grocery is expensive! (I saw him there once with one of  his kids -- for whom he wrote that song, I think)

one could argue the selling out part was writing that song itself.  (I don't like the song, personally.)

At first I thought it was a wig -- that they were deliberately trying to make him look goofy. But if it's his real hair... yikes, indeed.
