Re: short WHO film clip
While on the subject of Who music in advertising...
In Australia there have been a number of TV advertising campaigns that used Who
(or related) music (although it was always a studio band playing it). Ones that
spring to mind are:
"Join Together" used for the Commonwealth Games back in 1990(?)
"Who Are You" used for Who magazine (nothing to do with the group) a year or so
"Sensation" used to advertise the Chrysler Scorpion in the late 70's. This was
a great ad, the car would come crashing through mirrored glass to the strains of
"Chrysler Scorpion.... It's A Sensation!"
"Face The Face" changed to "Bag the Fag" for some anti-smoking ads a few years
and a local swimming complex stole the opening riff to Pinball Wizard to
advertise their water slide!
