    VH ever allow songs to be used for product advertisment? What product and when?

    I got a buddy here that swears they let Jump be used for Bounce fabric softener.

    I dont know about that.

    I don't think that Jump was ever used, but I'm not 100% sure of that.

    Right Now was used for the Crystal Pepsi commercials.

    VH's version of You Really Got Me was used for Nissan in that commercial with the dolls.

    And wasn't there a commercial years ago for a chocolate bar that had a girl playing the violin but the sound coming out was the intro chords of VH's version of You Really Got Me? I swear I remember that.

    Needless to say, my face is red. (For the purposes of this post though, my face is actually orange, since the red faced smilie may be misconstrued.

    The team needs me here, man on second, late innings, down by 1, 3-2 count, two out, and the pitcher throws one that bounces before it even reaches home plate. And I fuckin' swing at it. It's going to be a quiet post game in the dugout as I sit lonely among the discarded sunflower seeds, ashamed to even head back to the clubhouse.

    Sorry Seenbad, I've dropped the ball here.



    Incidentally, you can email Bounce on their website, though I bet you'd never hear anything back from them.

    And does anyone know anything about that candy bar commercial I mentioned, or am I having a crack pipe flashback?

    I'd take that bet Seen. No way in hell was Jump used for a bounce commercial, and no one ever hear about it. When that album was the shit, most of us were already HUGE fans of the band, and would have remembered that. Kinda of like the Cubs using Jump as their song during the 1984 season. Most all of us remember that. Of course I'm a Cubs fan, and that was one hell of a year for them. Out.

    I'm 95% sure the Jump song used in the Bounce commercial was the one by the Pointer Sisters (Jump for my love.) I always though Kiss should do one for Shout (Gene Simmons could get a nasty blood stain on something then the band could join him to "Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud.") Glenn are you referring to a Kit Kat ad?

I seem to recall the commercial was predicated on the idea that the candy bar had a huge crunch to it, hence the crunching of the guitar chords when the girl played the violin. And at the end the girl crunches up the candy bar rapper in her hand.

    I gotta hit the corner store tomorrow and see if any of the chocolate bars look familiar.

    Damn, I need a new hobby.

    Shit brotha Glenn I don't remember that commercial either. Of course you did say 10 years ago, and t5 was doing the college thing, so I wouldn't be surprised if it happened. About the only thing I remember well about going to school, was getting real good at ping pong. LOL. So it wouldn't surprise me, if in fact, there was a candy add with Van Halen on it. Damn I'm just thankfull that I made it out of there alive. LOL. Out.

    I asked Mrs. Glenn about this commercial I'm recollecting and she remembers it too, though she was a bit hesitant as to whether it was Van Halen's version of You Really Got Me.

    Oddly enough though, she didn't roll her eyes at me this time. Shit, something just ain't right here,

    Candy bars that crunch? Crunch, Twix...Wait a minute...are you in Canada? That's a completely different story then. I have a cousin in Montreal whenever she comes here she hordes Whatchamacallit bars because they're not available there.
