I used to work at an agency. You can be damn sure the creative folks knew...and knew the execs and clients did not.

My fav was Sixpence None The Richer / 'There She Goes' used in a tampon commercial. Hooray for the clueless.

It's like Oscar Mayer using a Mammas and the Pappas song for a ham commercial. Or claiming if Princess Diana were alive, she would have loved to ride in the latest Mercedes Benz.

The commercial that shows how much money you'll lose by choosing Geico? I thought it was refreshingly honest.

Ya know, in Chrome you can't fully type "allman brothers motor" before it offers "cycle crash" and "cycle accident" as autocompletes.

Truly no one checks these things.

Oh, and Duane Allman was killed by something beyond the scope of helmet help, Berry Oakley walked away with an untreated skull fracture and died hours later but would have probably been okay if he'd gone to the hospital.

Why is that fail? You don't NEED insurance until you crash. Sounds like a perfect for to me.
