Sprint’s new “Cut Your Bill in Half” promotion features a number of ads showing customers physically chopping their bills in half. One of them features a track that sounds a LOT like The White Stripes “Seven Nation Army”. Check out the ad:
This time I made sure to save down an MP3 of the ad since the last time I posted a Sprint ad they pulled it down (see Sprint vs. The Cure):
Sprint - "Cut Your Bill in Half Ad" (2015)
The White Stripes - "Seven Nation Army" (2003)

Wow. This actually happened! Tom Petty and ELO’s Jeff Lynne have been added to Sam Smith’s hit “Stay With Me”. Coincidence or not, the internet has been talking about this one for a while. Here’s a snippet from RollingStone.com
Over the weekend, The Sun reported that Sam Smith had quietly and amicably settled a copyright dispute with Tom Petty over the likeness between Smith’s three-time Grammy-nominated “Stay With Me” and Petty’s Full Moon Fever hit “I Won’t Back Down,” co-written with ELO’s Jeff Lynne. In a statement to Rolling Stone, Smith’s reps have confirmed that “Stay With Me” is now co-credited to Petty and Lynne, adding that while there are undeniable “similarities” between the two singles, it was a “complete coincidence.” – RollingStone.com
