There's not many reasons that will break me from my Sunday football watching, but when I saw a version of Morrissey's classic, "Everyday Is Like Sunday," being used for a NFL Network commercial, I had to head to the internets. The ad used some rent-a-country singer to just sing the line, "Everyday is like Sunday." I guess the other lines don't matter like "Come, Armageddon! Come!" or "In the seaside town that they forgot to bomb." Hmmmmm, shifty.
I've discussed many times that there are varying degrees of selling-out when it comes to licensing music for commercials. I'm pretty okay with it, especially when it's a young artist trying get their music out there. In fact, these commercial are playing better music than terrestrial radio.
For Morrissey, I'm surprised he gave the okay to this, and kind of disappointed. You'd think he would be against a network that covers such a violent sport. Well, I assume he did, unless this was done without his knowledge. Daaa daahhh daaaaaaahhhhh. Heck, you never know, sooner or later, NFL Network might be using Blur's "Sunday, Sunday".
In other commercial news, two ads are using Justice's "Genesis," Cadillac and Levis.
