I’m way past objecting to musical artists selling their
souls songs to be used in commercials. If Dylan can do it, then anyone can.
But the idea of using Parliament’s “Tear the Roof Off the Sucka” to promote MasterCard seems—well—totally unfunkadelic. Especially with these hapless hoppers.
The “P” in P-Funk stood for pure. So stop pasteurizing these classics. Now that would be priceless.
