    Default Remember that VH Nissan TV Commercial? - Here it is

    Found this on my hard drive and thought I'd pass it along.....I figure there's gotta be a few people around here that never saw it.

    It's that old Nissan car TV commercial that used 'You Really Got Me' to Ken and Barbie. I figure it's gotta be at least 5 years old.

    Is is true that Ed auctually wrote a little bit of Right Now while dave was still in the band?

    Oh and MadTV did a parady of The Nissan Commercial that was funny too.

    Dave (and I think Ed, too) had a thing against VH songs being used in commercials which is why they are not used often.

    Anyone know why they approved this one?

    I like that Caddy ad with Zep's R&R playing....

    Hmm, DG you are probably right but, in the past 2 yrs. I've heard "You Really Got Me" for a Chevy truck commercial and, most recently, Lucas motorcycle oil spot too. Mind you, it isn't the band playing these though. Also, have heard YRGM at Walgreens lately.

    They know their career is on the downhill slide.

    Nissan must have made them a sweet deal to be able to use their tune.

    Thanks for posting that JTHT. I can still remember the first time I saw that. I still love it.

    The story goes (as for the crystal pepsi deal) , that pepsi had told VH that they would use the song whether they approved it or not and just use studio musicians. Eddie figured if they were gonna use the song anyways, they may as well make sure it was done right.
