Commercial Credits

Screw the product. What's that song?!

Sometimes the commercial, rather than the product, appeals more to me. Be it the music or the graphics, cinematic appeal. I would like to have a way to find out how to get the music they used or find out who produced the ad. You've probably seen the verison ad where everyone talking on their phones, are barbequing and wearing clever aprons (tuxido print, fishing vest, french maid) You dont think they are trying to make people curious about not just verison but the other products introduced by the commercial. "indirect advertising" Advertising one product - but promoting another. what the hell do you do to find those other products. the aprons, the music, the sunglasses. for all us materialistic people. I propose that ads have at least a small credit web link at the end or at the bottom of the screen to find information on the production of the commercial. Then i might get interested in the product they are peddling.

       Perhaps if he peruses the perfect newsgroup he can ponder his popular pitched prose with perspicacity.

       Persnickety post-production populace perhaps posting promiscous particulars.

       I did see an advert on the telly the other day which had the song title and artist in the corner. I can't remember the song, artist or indeed the product, though.

       Well, paint me perfectly penitent, [thumbwax].

       friendly, I saw that too. It was a crappy Phil Collins tune. I forget who the ad was for, though.

       Yes, a very interesting idea - we have thought of this idea before as well, however not tied together with a web site specifically for the commercial (Brilliant)!
