other musical commercials

Jon Allen is not the first artist I've found out about via a commercial. After writing about today's discovery, I recalled two more commercials that led me to great musical talent, and they just happen to be two of my all time favorite artists/songs/commercials -- all of the above.

The first time I heard Nick Drake was back in college, courtesy of this very cool Volkswagon commercial...which I'm sure sold many Cabrios.

And then there's this Lacoste commercial featuring Feist.

You know, the same thing happened to me a while ago. Back in high school I discovered Charles Mingus by looking up a car commercial on the internet. Let it never be said that capitalism never did nothing for nobody.
