Green Police - Updated

Tuesday, February 09, 2010
Yes this Super Bowl commercial made me smile. It's also got a catchy tune.
So why is there a part of me that gets a tinge nervous when I watch it?

Ah interesting:

But one aspect of the Green Police ad that's certain to remain with viewers of the Super Bowl is ... the music. Audi asked Cheap Trick to return to the recording studio to remake the rock band's classic hit "Dream Police" for a big Super Bowl presentation. The result? "Green Police" a song that combines the message of the A3 TDI Green Car of the Year win and the high-energy beat of the original tune.

"We have no doubt that viewers will walk away from the Super Bowl with that song playing in their heads," said Scott Keogh, Audi of America Chief Marketing Officer. "It is certain to make the environmental message behind the Green Police ad hard to forget." via.

How fun is that.

  1. Awesome. I liked it so much I watched it twice. :)

  2. Wonder how green a segway (segue?) is? Makes me want to go poke certain people with something sharp (and probably avoid buying an Audi too).

    I'm not sure why it's given me a sense of humour failure: maybe it's funny in North America only?


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
