Tuned In

Big Sandwich, I Know You're the One

Which is sadder:

(A) The Jam’s “Start” being used in a Cadillac commercial

(B) The Violent Femmes’ “Blister in the Sun” being used in a Wendy’s Four-Cheese Spicy Chicken Sandwich commercial

(c) A grown man being concerned about all this?

Extra credit: This is not the first time a Violent Femmes tune has been used in a commercial. (And a four-cheese chicken sandwich does sound like something you’d eat when you’re “high as a kite.”) I don’t know of a previous Jam appropriation, though. What’s next? “A Town Called Malice” for Desperate Housewives promos? “In the City” for the urban-parking-friendly Mini Cooper?
