I never thought I’d see the day a song by the “mostly fictional” band Spinal Tap (Gimme Some Money, their first single from “1965”) is used in a commercial for a completely non-fictional product. That day was today. I haven’t found a video online yet of this American Express commercial, but look out for this one on television. It’s a funny song, and a completely random sighting.
Spinal Tap seems to have gone commercial lately, with the guitarist “Nigel Tufnel” appearing in a Volkswagen ad: “This amplifier has airbags!”
Update: Thanks to a commenter, now you can see the commercial online, courtesy of YouTube.
