Anyone seen the latest Honda car commercial? Listen to the acoustic guitar... it sounds quite familiar. Almost an entire rip off of the intro to "More Than a Feeling" by Boston! Played slightly different and at a slightly slower tempo!

I'm trying to find it on youtube... Can't find it

Wasn't there already a commercial with More Than A Feeling in it?

Possibly? But this Honda commercial that has been playing a lot lately, sounds like More Than a Feeling... Just heard it on tv, as I was browsing the Pit and thought that I would share this discovery

Oh my God! This never, ever, happens. Ever. This crisis must be averted before it happens again!

Companies have been doing this to popular songs for decades.

Nothing to talk about.

This.

Who seriously cares? People will do anything to make pit threads these days, I get the feeling it's a dying forum.

Not really that interesting. The company doesn't want to pay for the song, so they change it just enough so that they can legally get away with it and use that version instead.

In any case, I would much prefer that (a new take on the song) to what happens in adverts where they secure the rights to a song and then cut it to get the sections they want and ruin the song. I think there was a perfume advert that used Hysteria by Muse that made a cut halfway through a bar, sounded awful...

Remember the Ghostbusters' Theme Song by Ray Parker Jr.?

Ever heard that song "I Want A New Drug" by Huey Lewis & The News?

It existed back then.

One of the Sprite commercials had a song that sounded very similar to Drive by Incubus.
Does being successful truly make you a sell out? Can't you do your own original music and be successful because of it?

there was a thread on here about a car ad stealing the living after midnight song then i heard another car ad playing a riff similiar to ace of spades, the companies are just avoiding royalties

On the CBBC show "Beat the boss" (How do I know??!!) they rip off a kasabian song and change a whole note so they dont get sued. I'l try and find a link.
