Thoughts On Commercials

I've recently seen a new commercial for Kentucky Fried Chicken which has the guitar riff from Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" as the background music. What's up with that? I guess the only song that comes to mind for Kentucky is Stephen Foster's "My Old Kentucky Home," which isn't quite as catchy to modern ears and whose original lyrics would politically incorrect today.

Have you seen the commercial for Gatorade Endurance Formula, which features non-Gatorade-drinking athletes shattering into rocky chunks? It's a very clever computer graphics effect, quite eye-catching, and someone in their advertising department deserves kudos for it.

It's a creepy ad (Gatoraid) but it is well-animated.
