She Sells Beer

The only Super Bowl ad this year I remember was the Budweiser “Eternal Optimism” spot, a highly patriotic decade in review since WWII. And I like the music, hate the beer.

Imagine my surprise when the song turns out to be a mashup of “She Sells Sanctuary” from the 1985 album “Love” from an English band, The Cult. Nothing against English rockers, mind you, but if you are hawking crappy American beer using overt American symbolism, might you not want to use an American band? Just askin.

Nice mashup, reminds me of the Kleptones.
