    Is somebody doesn't get Bishop Allen out of that fucking Sony commercial, there's going to be some major fucking drama... At the very least, they could refrain from playing it every 5 minutes during NFL games.

    It always bothered that they used The Postal Service for a UPS ad, shouldn't they use them in a USPS commercial?

    I think there is a couple more commercials but I can't find them.

    Lemon Jelly's "Space Walk" is used in, of all things, a commercial for cat food. (I think Whiskas.)

    i remember when i first saw this.. i never thought i'd hear a song off OOS in a commercial..

    at least not this one.

    one of muse's greatest songs.. i love Matt's voice!

    and Eva Green is really sexy.

    levi's was responsible for many top five hits in the uk in the 90s. including one atrociously long (six weeks? seven?) run at number one for spaceman. I'll post the few that I can remember here.

    oh, and you can't forget flat eric. did he even exist before the levis commercials?

    babylon zoo/spaceman

    Forget what it was an ad for, but I remember thinking Air's "Surfing on a Rocket" was used very well in a commercial a while back.
