Anyone seen the Housequake/Volkswagen commercial

I just saw it on Youtube. INteresting, since I thought he was against using his songs for commercialized ventures.

It may be an old commercial b/c I have never seen it before.

Little Red Corvette from SOTT video was used for a corvette commercial a few years ago as well. He may not be able to control the usage sometimes.

ok. It is an official VW commercial that uses the song though! I find it interesting that the record company has that much pull over his material use

That VW commercial was most likely done by an ad agency or a student for speculation purposes only, or maybe just for fun. It was probably never contracted by VW, and certainly not Prince or WB.

It's been around for a few years. It is fun biggrin
If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.
