More info, here on the Speedies website. Reciently the folks at Goodby Silverstein & Partners used it in a hp ad. You can read the story for whats going on in a New York Times Online article "A Photographer's Pop Star Moment". I must say I really like both versions.It’s good to see songs used in advertising where you not totally grossed out by the ad and then soured by even hearing the song ever again.
