Volunteers on an ad for a stock brokerage firm???

Postby Gene33 on Sat Jan 01, 2005 2:03 am

Just heard a TV ad for a brokerage firm using Volunteers. I can't believe it. What the ...? Don't the Airplane know what that song means to those of us that haven't sold out? This really stinks.

I've seen it also. I wondered who has the rights to their stuff. Who are the suits trying to impress?

Ive seen that ad, E* Trade has stolen the Airplanes Volunteers song for their commercial. Sickens me that big business needs to use the work made by such legendary bands, Makes me feel as sick as Mercedes Benz did when they used Janis Joplin singing Mercedes Benz to hawk overpriced cars. You can see the age group they are targeting with these lame ideas for ads.
