    I think it was for the Dodge Caravan. The drums in the back are definitely ripping off Alex drum intro. No doubt about it whoever is playing is purposely rippin' him off. Not that thats a crime or he ownes it or anything. Just wonered if any of you have noticed.

    Actually I halfway heard it the other day and thought it was the intro to HFT. I need to listen to it more closely to see if it is just a rip off or the real thing.

    I just seen/heard this last night. Thought it was cool. Anything that brings VH to the front of everyone's mind is OK with me. Who knows maybe this is part of the plan to re-introduce Van Halen to the public. Kinda like the Gateway commercial with Dave in the photo. Slowly but surely Vh is letting it be known that they are about to blast the world of music wide the fuck open.

    I was about to post this yesterday when I saw the commercial the first time. And it is without a doubt the intro to Hot for Teacher.
    Like Eddie once said there's no other drummer in the world that sound like him.
    If it is some other dude... they are ripping off AVH. But I think it's a loop or a sample.

    YES! I saw it last night on Fox 5 in New York. It is a complete rip of "Hot For Teacher."

    Yep I did notice that, absolutely sounds like the intro HFT. A bit off topic, the drum intro on Iron Maiden's "Gangland" is very similiar to HFT's intro too, and it was first.

    There was another commercial, forget what it was, but the drum beat was EXACTLY "Everbody Wants Some!". Just like that Sony Minidisc commercial that ripped off the riff to "Kickstart My Heart" by Motley Crue.

    there isn't as much cymbals.
    i think they changed it just a little bit to skirt copyright

    I'm not the only person who noticed this? I almost forgot about it. It's cool that someone at least appreciates VH enough to use the drums.

    No question it isn't HFT, but it does sound a hell of alot like it. Glad well all picked up on it. Just shows what all hard core Halen freaks we are. Out.

    Well i dont know who was drumming there, and they probably didnt copy it EXACTLY the same, note for note,...but whoever did it surely was thinking of Van halen and Hot For teacher.

    Just caught it yesterday morning.

    Definitely sounded like HFT. Anything that can get Halen stuck in my head for a day is fine by me
