Sometime in the mid 70s, Ringo shot the four commercials I've posted below for the Japanese company Simple Life (don't know what they do/did, sounds like banking or something a-hard-days-night-paul-3) . I was simply just wondering whether the two songs from these commercials were ever released in their full length elsewhere.

Also, the backing vocalist on the song featured in #2 and #4 sounds a lot like Davy Jones. Someone said in the comments it's him but can anybody confirm this for sure? ahdn_george_01 Thanks in advance for any responses. a-hard-days-night-john-6

UPDATE: Okay, I did a little searching myself and I've found this full radio version of the song in commercials #2 and #4. Simple Life was a clothing company, hence the title of this song, called "I Love My Suit" :

Also, a person in the comments to this video has also said it used to be shown at some of the Fest For Beatles Fans events, and that it's Davy Jones on backing vocals, so it must be him! beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Unforunately, I'm unable to find anything for the song in commercials #1 and #3, so I've come to the conclusion that one was only used purposely for the TV ads. But hey, I'm happy I found one of them! a-hard-days-night-ringo-10
