I heard this commercial for the first time a couple nights ago, and its 
not The Who's studio version.  The introductory keyboards are 
different.  I don't have time to start searching but I bet it's one of 
Pete's solo versions, maybe off Lifehouse Chronicles.  If that makes 
any difference.

Re: that guy's rant against The Who's music being used commercially, it 
sounds like a very young person just waking up to the fact that artists 
like to make money.  Heard it all twenty years ago.  But I wonder if it 
would make any difference to him that it's not The Who's music being 
sold but Pete's.
