'We All Stand Together' is featured in the Channel 4 promo for the upcoming series of 'The Great British Bake Off'.

Needs more frogs in the baking. 

 

I googled frog recipes and watched a clip of one on youtube.

Googled it myself and now i know why you feel this way, although it's not that bad that i want to drown my eyes with bleach and trust me, there's far worse things to see on the internet than frog recipes.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

The John Lewis Christmas advert is out (it's a big deal for some reason) and this years song is Elbow's cover of 'Golden Slumbers '.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?.....w1Y-zhQURU

 

At least the song will get some attention.

 

Anyone who remembers 2014's John Lewis advert will recall Tom O'Dells cover of 'Real Love '.

Joe Cocker is probably cheaper and a lot less hassle to clear for an ad paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Wouldn't it have been more appropriate to have a cover of Rain ? Well, that's what the advert's called! ahdn_george_08

Nike commercial from 1987

https://vimeo.com/89811766

https://www.businessinsider.co.....&IR=T

Snippets of the article

They also managed to secure Yoko Ono's support. She explained that she didn't "want to see John deified" nor for "John's songs to be part of a cult of glorified martyrdom." Instead she wanted his songs to be enjoyed by a "new generation" who would "make it part of their lives instead of a relic of the distant past." So "Revolution " was licensed for a media campaign that cost between $7 million and $10 million.

...The most significant response was the $15 million lawsuit filed by Apple Records in an attempt to halt the commercial. Apple claimed that the ad used The Beatles "persona and good will" without permission. Reportedly, the action was settled out of court after the campaign had run its course, with Apple, EMI, and Capitol agreeing that no Beatles version would ever be used again to sell products — truly the Nike Revolution was a one off....

Seeing Beatles music in commercials makes me happy (because it's the Beatles) but at the same time I feel like it's not right. They didn't write the songs to sell products. George expressed concern that the Beatles would someday be used to advertise "sausages and diapers" and he honestly had a point. It can be very frustrating.

Watching the NFL today I spotted Paul in a new Apple commercial. I’ll keep an eye out for it again and try to get a video.

What a pun to make though... "Behind the Mac(ca)"

I wonder if they did that on purpose...
