I logged onto the interwebicon this morning and up pops Yahoo! (one of the 3 options dictated by work), I was confronted by the following image:
All I could think was "Ughhh." I am not the biggest Motley Crue fan in the world, but I do enjoy them (except their cover of Anarchy in the U.K. - really Vince, could you say the end "DESTROY" in a less tough sounding way?). Escpecially, I enjoy the song Kickstart My Heart. That song does exactly what it says, it is just like a feel good, make you get going song. It is energizing.
I knew this commercial was going to have this song...what else could it be. Now, I don't hate the Kia Optima...it seems like a decent, cheap mid-sized sedan. However, it is not the car that would ever pop into my mind when I think of Kickstart My Heart. Full of trepidation, I click the link and watch the video. It is actually pretty funny and at least there wasn't dancing hamsters. I'm not gonna say they sold out...because that is just dumb, if I had the chance, I would totally be Wayne's World and be going "Nuprin? Little. Yellow. Different." every single chance I got. Not a sell out, good job making money, I say to the Crue. It is just a strange fit to my mind, but then I guess people don't really write songs about low end, midsize sedans. I guess I do have to say thanks to Kia for not using Train's Hey Soul Sister (as that has been in way to many commercials) or Limp Bizkit's Nookie (as that is one of the worst songs of all time).
