These days...

Apparently this is an old TV commercial, but I saw/heard it for the first time yesterday. Normally I loathe TV commercials, but I did notice this one, as I immediately recognized the song featured in it (the wonderful These Days by People Press Play). Not going to discuss whether or not it’s okay/a good idea that artists sell their music to TV commercials (instead one could perhaps start discussing whether or not the commercial is a rip off?), but undoubtedly the band has earned multiple times more money this way than through concerts, downloads etc. And since the song is getting some much deserved TV exposure as well, I guess you could say that this a classic win-win situation?
