And then there's the Southwest Airlines spot with people lip-synching Journey's "Anyway you want it"...

Good Lord, that is awful.

Yesterday at Thanksgiving my great-nephew came out of his electronics dominated little world to comment on how annoying this spot is.  It was great.

A mellow, it-took-me-a-minute-to-recognize-it cover of Benatar's "We Belong" for Chase.

BTW, this is quite a lovely spot, as it follows a relationship, that just happens to be interracial, from childhood to adult. Sweet.

The Specials' A Message to You Rudy for Fidelity Investments (!), Presumably so they could include
the lyric "Stop your foolin' around / Time you straightened right out / Better think of your future..."
"Your favorite songs, played beautifully"

saw some exercise bike ad that used "Blitzkrieg Bop". That tune is now officially more overused than "Walking on Sunshine"
