No sell out

January 18, 2012

In the last few days I’ve noticed that an awful cover of the Beatles’ “In My Life” has been playing on a TV commercial. This is noteworthy because the Beatles catalog has always been very tightly controlled. I remember that Beatles albums were not released on CD until years after most other back-catalog stuff, and even today I’m pretty sure you can’t download a Beatles mp3 from Amazon.

If I remember correctly, it was actually news when a Beatles song was first used in a commercial (for Jaguar if memory serves). So what’s particularly noteworthy about this particular crappy commercial? It’s for Sleepy’s.

Ringo must be rolling over in his grave.
