Sprint vs. The Cure

Sprint vs. The Cure

Thanks to a comment by Tin Ears

I’m not sure how this one slipped by. It looks like there was a Sprint ad from a few months ago created by Figliulo&Partners that stirred up a bit of controversy for its sound-alike Cure track. The background music to this sounds very similar to “Lullaby”  (1989). Check out sample below and then watch/listen to the ad.

The Cure - "Lullaby" (1989)

9/10/2014 Update:  It looks like this Sprint Ad was pulled from YouTube. But I did find this one:

    It’s actually a sound-a-like of Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” made to sound like a Cure song…so basically if Robert Smith covered Motley Crue.

    For another case, Sultana Bran used I Heard it Through the Grapevine for their jingle, but I can’t find the ad online. Not the first time the song had been used to sell a sultana product-California Raisins used the song in 1986.

    Home Support Services (HSS) has a jingle that goes: Lean on HSS, lean on us. It always reminds me of Lean on Me by Bill Withers. Mannix Air has a jingle that goes Absolutely everything at Mannix, call Mannix.com.au. This one reminds me of Absolutely Everybody by Vanessa Amorosi and the theme song for Alvin and the Chipmunks at one stage, which you can find on the same website I got Green Day vs Jawbreaker from. Unfortunately, I can’t find the ads.
