Not long ago, Blacksword opened a topic on a Ford TV advertisement using the music of Aphrodite's Child. In that thread I posted another ad that used Focus' Hocus Pocus to sell mattresses...!

This week I stumbled upon a new TV ad, using Yes's Owner of a Lonely Heart:



There was another ad recently that used a snippet of KC's 21st Century Schizoid Man (will try to find it... I think it was also for a car, or maybe a perfume?).
Do you know of other ads?

For the ease and the pleasure, I will embed the previous mentioned ads:

Aphrodite's Child for Ford:



Focus for Eve Sleep:

Kees, I suspect you saw the ad that uses Kanye West as a soundtrack, as he sampled Krimson for his song.


[EDIT] I figured I may as well add the full Kanye song in case anyone wanted to hear it. Itís one of those videos that wonít let you embed it, so hereís the link: https://youtu.be/chPDTUjnWgA

^ Yes, that's it! Though I didn't know Kayne West sampled KC - I thought it was done for the ad (not that that's important). Thanks!

Apparently this one never aired for some reason. There was one that featured fly by night by Rush that did air though.

I remember years ago, Hyundai used "Thick as a Brick" for their Santa Fe ad.

The violin part of Atom Heart Mother was in a 70s spot of Fiuggi mineral water (Italy). Unfortunately no footages survived and it's no longer available anywhere
