Wow. Wow.

I want a glow-in-the-dark towel.

I can't decide if I hate the advert or love it, it's so ludicrous.

Wow is that real???

Seems like a good advert for not buying songsmith! Maybe it was made by apple.

Adam-n-Joe* played some of this today (otherwise I wouldn't have a clue about it).
They suggested two possiblities:
- the makers have No Idea how to make a decent advert. Or
- they know that a bad enough ad might just generate huge viral traffic, thus gaining a market share way beyond their expenditure.

Giving this thread's existence, which do you think is right?

I only listened to half of it as it made me want to  :sick:

Was there a glow in the dark towel actually shown in it?

I've downloaded it. There is a huge market for this. I've been using copyright material for Youtube videos, but the best ones are getting pulled, by WMG mainly. So I want to be able to make my own backing for the vids. Which is only right , because I'm essentially hitching a ride on someone else's talent.
The current gamut of instruments is just a teaser. better sounds are available for more money.

Wonderful.

All done with a MacBook Pro with the logo covered up with some girly stickers. You couldn't make it up!
It is simpler than it looks.

What a dreadful advert, and I got moaned at for "making" people watch two minutes of cats dogfighting. ;D

I suspect with this, you just end up with most music sounding the same, as did most of the advert. 
Actually, it is rocket science.
