    ...I POSTED THIS OVER AT DLRARMY...I KNOW, I KNOW...BUT THIS BOARD WAS SHUT DOWN. ITS ALL IN THE FAMILY..RIGHT ? anyway, that "gap" comercial. I think something's up. Could this company be the major sponcer of the upcoming mtv music awards ? that's not all : here in baltimore on the radio 98 rock, there's a computer co. blasting out "you really got me " for there advertisement. A multi million dollar machine like van halen ,i'am sure get hounded all the time,for these little plugs. remember : the stiped jumpsuit ed used to wear.( possible be gap ) the only time i saw ed in one of those was with dave,the last time was 96' mtv music awards . my question is who made eds striped jump suit . i think our boys are gonna launch the "remasters" with a perfomance of "you really got me.......maybe i'am nuts !!

    Hell the versions they are using in those Gaps commercials are in the wrong key though.

    It would be pretty cool play up, however, (not to play devil's advocate or anything), but isn't it originally a Kinks song?

    I must be thinking of a different striped jumpsuit, all I remember is Ed wearing light blue overalls to the MTV awards. Am I trippin?

    Actually, weren't they bibs? I don't know who made them, but I saw a guy at the opening show for Monsters of Rock in Alpine Valley, Wisconsin, walking around with the exact same bibs on. I offered my left nut for them, and surprisingly he declined.

    Anyway, they were dead-on, not just a bunch of red tape and an old pair of coveralls.

    Because of all this waitin' we have all been reduced to dreamin' up all sorts of VH links (no pun intended) that will signal the return of the band in some spectacular fashion. Nice try, but I think any VH ties to the Gap commercial are merely a coincident.

    I think everyone has been waiting for so long that we're pulling together events that don't relate to each other.

    (ie - I don't think the gap's advertisers went to VH and said, hey, you guys reuniting? we'll do some spots with some really uncoordinated children that resemble Macy Gray and Hanson)

    Yes, i know it's a kinks song, but it also is the first vh song to hit the radio. i'am saying is this comercial a little ( KY JELLY) for what's about to come !

    Panama:
    I knew those kids on the commercial looked familiar, but I couldn't pin point it... Macy Gray and Hanson...what a riot!
