New VW Commercial Features Vintage Rush Tune. Apocolypse Begins in 3-2-1 [VIDEO]
People who like Rush REALLY like Rush. I mean ‘possessed by the devil’ like them. People that don’t like Rush, really HATE Rush. There is no gray area. Which makes it so hard to believe that a major automobile maker would actually use one of their songs to pimp one of their new rides – especially the 2013 version of last year’s Motor Trend Car of the Year. Sure, it’s “Fly By Night“, a Rush tune penned right before Neil Peart took them lyrically down the Ayn Rand Yellow brick road…but kudos to Volkswagon for having the cajones to use a tune from such a universally polarizing band. Check out the commercial here:
By the way, RUSH is still not in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Which is one of the major travities of post-cilal war history. Make RUSH feel better for the RHOF snub by buying a ticket or two and seeing them live (an amazing show, BTW) on their Clockwork Angels tour when it stops in Dallas on November 28th.
