    Default VH Music In TV Commercials

    How many TV commercials can you think of that uses or used VH music in them? I know there was a car or truck commercial from about 1-2 years ago that used "You Really Got Me" in it. My favorite was a commercial for batteries (I think it was Energizer) from about 5 or more years ago. It was like a take off on a Barbie commercial. It featured a cool male doll speeding in his car and going to pick up his girlfiend (a fake Barbie doll) and the preppy lookalike Ken doll was mad because Barbie went with the cool guy instead of him. "You Really Got Me" was being played during the entire commercial.

    yeah......i think it was the Nissan commercial, it was kinda G.I. joe take ,where the G.I. joe character jumps in to a toy like 300zx and drive to pick up the barbie toy figure. and at the end of the commercial.....the nissan icon: the old japanese guy and his dog are smiling away. cool commercial!!

    remember the pesi commercial ???? they use "Right Now" to advertise the new soda "crystall pesi" ? oh yeah! i wish they brought back that drink! hehehehe

    VH's version of YRGM was used for the Nissan commercial (the one with the GI Joe/Barbie type dolls) in 1996

    Right Now was used for Crystal Pepsi in 1993, of course.

    Those are the only two "offical" commercials that feature VH. MTV used to use alot of VH music/videos in their seld commercials, but those really don't count. There is a realtively new commercial for Dodge Trucks (I think its Dodge) that uses YRGM, but not VH's or the Kinks' version.

    Did anyone see the SNL commercial w/the Right Now song set to a clear gravy commercial??? I can't remember what the gravy product was called, but they were pouring clear gravy on everything. It was pretty gross! Not really related to this topic, but thought it was an interesting bit of info.
