It was Tom Sawyer. Coolest commercial ever made, IMO

Hi folks,

A few years ago (circa 2000), I saw commercials for the Nissan Maxima on TV. The music playing in the background in that commercial sounded a lot like the beginning of Rush's "Tom Sawyer." Did anyone else notice this?
Was this done intentionally, or is it coincidental? Did Nissan pay Rush royalties for use of this song?

Augie


It was done intentionally, and with royalties I'm sure. Tom Sawyer also appeared in the movie The Waterboy.

A few screamed about "selling out", but personally I don't care.

I really don't care either, it's money and it's publicity. Both are very good for a career. It's not like Rush is out there beating on doors to get their songs into movies, they were asked by Paramount, or whoever, and they said yes. As simple as that Razz

Money is money as some small-time hippie singer/songwriter said. I was talking to him awhile ago and this topic came up, he said that he always thought he would never do that, but once he got the call for a song of his to be in a commercial he said "Yessum, yessum, where do I sign?".

Tom Sawyer was also featured in a little cartoon called "Futurama". Our hero, Fry, had to play an arcade game all night to battle the aliens and he needed "Pizza and his all-Rush mix-tape". Then Tom Sawyer played. I was like - Cool

Haven't heard about all of them. But very interesting.

I know from a novel (but can't remember the title anymore) in which a girl is driving in her car and she's listening to Rush's "Jacob's Ladder".
So I was told. I haven't read the book by my own. Does anyone know the novel?

My wife almost spit up all over the living room when that scene came on...

"Look honey, it's YOU!!!"

Be proud in your geekdom Augie, it doesn't look like it was an insult Wink

To me the geeks are the guys bouncing up and down in their car seats like monkeys when they're behind me at red lights and listening to rap music. True story. Wink

Augie, man, no offense intended. if you'd seen the episode, you'd know what i meant..i should've said IDIOTS..they were summoning dark spirits!! i don't have ANYTHING against geeks or nerds!! sorry dude!!

thanks L*nite, that really helps. Wink actually, i consider those kind of people 'cool' though cool doesn't hold very high regard in my book, considering what being 'cool' has turned kids into these days..*sigh*

Anybody also remember the episode of Futurama where Bender didn't want to get an upgrade so he ran off to some deserted island and led a revolt against technology? Anyway whenever the revolt was about to begin he stated "And soon we'll stage a revolt against technology worthy of being chronicled in an anthem by Rush."

Yep, saw that one too.

Futurama was a great show, IMHO.
