    They show the outside of a Sears department store, and then they cut away from the store and have "Where Eddie Van Halen bought his first guitar" on the screen and play the beginning of Unchained! Then it had some retarded Happy 20th MTV thing on there, but it was still awesome to hear Unchained being played on MTV! Something is gonna happen soon!

    this reminds me of:

    I saw that too. When it said Pasadena I immediately thought it was about Eddie. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    So let me get this straight. There were two different commercials with Van Halen clips in them to help promote mtvs 20'th celebration show? That is kinda odd since I take it Van Halen didn't show up on the show. [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] Out.

    Van Halen is always in the media, whether it's a reference to them in a movie, songs contributed to a soundtrack (Stern's "Private Parts"), Eddie popping up in a golf magazine of all places etc. Two places where they never are is in the studio and on the charts.

    Good media is obviously good if you are selling a product. Van Halen is a rare case of being good for the media.

    Even after all of this long bit of silence from the band, they are still in the media. Though its bits and pieces, they are still there. Amazing !
