Car ads seem to be casting a wide net for music beds. Saw a Subaru commercial tonight that used the Pogues' If I Should Fall From Grace With God.

Just watched a Honda ad featuring Holiday by Vampire Weekend.

I've been seeing an ad for a program on Discovery called "Brew Masters" that uses Curtis Mayfield's "Pusherman" from Superfly as the music bed. Interesting choice.
Let's get right to it.

J'adore Dior?  Not necessarily - but j'adore whoever had the idea to use Marvin Gaye's "Funky Space Reincarnation" in Dior's latest ad.

I had never heard that song until JJ unearthed it on KPOO a few months ago -- wow. One of the great WTF? tracks of all time. In a good way.

A print ad, actually (and I coulda put this in the "right wing" thread): BART is plastered with ads for taxbrain.com, a new do-your-taxes-on-line website. Most of the ads are innocuous, keyed (unsurprisingly) to the notion that nobody likes to do their taxes. But I was dumbstruck by the caption I saw today:

"IRS Making You Want To Join the NRA?"

er...

That is way beyond the pale.  Especially since such attacks have indeed occurred.  Gah.

completely.  I can't believe this was approved.  Which BART station is it in?  I'd like to see it for myself.

These are the square poster ads inside the train cars. I couldn't find a pic on Google (or anyone blogging about it).

me neither, I searched for that exact phrase on google and found 0.  I bet this hits the 'blogosphere' soon.  Maybe by you?  you should start a blog.

I also noticed that "IRS...NRA" ad yesterday in a BART car, not in a station, and also thought that line was inappropriate. The downtown stations are plastered with other TaxBrain ads, but didn't notice the NRA one in a station.

I'm emailing SF-ist about it; sounds like it's right up their alley.

Who at the Chron could you give a "tip" about it? Sounds like something *someone* at sfgate would write about.

at this stage it would be a good thing for a columnists to mention.  Leah Garchik's is kinda gossipy, but she might be interested.  CW Nevius might be interested. 

Getting a photo would be key for  a blog post.  Although I typically blog in our bike blog, I could even mention it in one of the other newsy blogs here -- we have an general SFGate news tips & items blog that would work, and we would be wise to advertise this blog better and the entire idea that we're open to user-submissions.
