Recently heard snatches of Crimso’s 21st Century Schizoid Man in some perfume commercial on UK TV. It had apparently earlier featured on an ad for XBOX which at least seems a bit more relevant.
Worst one I can think of at the moment is the rerecording of Gold for Bold fabric conditioner – all together now “BOLD! Always believe in your goal, you’ve even got time to stroll”. Gary Kemp must be cringing with embarrassment as he starts licking his fingers and counting his ill-gotten gains.
Anyone here think of any equally atrocious crimes against good taste?
