OMG!!!   This is the SECOND Wendy's commercial using the ABM reference, I just saw the other one today during the Oakland As VS. San Francisco Giants televised game --- she (the cute little redhead) walks into a theater marquee, I think, and you hear part of ABM until she gets up next to it.


Great stuff, to be so versatile a song it can be applied in other ways.  Way to go, Mr. Carmen!!!  :D

P.S. --- just saw it again while watching the BBC,  It was her walking along a wet, rainy sidewalk, and she almost runs into a lighted bus stop poster ad.  She is listening to ABM..... 9:05am PST 07-08-2014.

I´m not a fan of taking old gems (like All By Myself) and diluting their majesty by sticking them in a commercial, changing the words to something silly, especially in a commercial that´s not very good.


We had this discussion here a long time ago re: other classic songs being re-used in advertising.  I remember Darlene making a good point that at least these commercials get the music out again to a new audience, etc.  And of course it is great that the artists can make some money, great for sure.


But having said that, I´m still not a fan. It takes something away from the integrity of the song...I think.   Larisa mentioned something like this with respect to the airport video.  I´m kinda with her on this.


Just a humble opinion from a humble dude,
