Do you remember Mr. Yuk? I sure do. We had him plastered to cleaning product bottles under my kitchen sink as a child. I knew not to drink stuff with Mr. Yuk on the bottle – but apparently not everyone kid did. The campaign was considered ineffective. I didn’t know (until now), however, that Mr Yuk had a theme tune.
I just got that excited/bummed out feeling you get when you see one of your bands on a major corporate TV commercial. I just saw an AT&T ad featuring Mates Of State. The ad features the beautiful song For The Actor. When my emotions boil down, I really am happy for their exposure though. Now Mates Of State have done ads before, but it didn’t faze me the same way because it seemed like it was for a good cause and because Jason and Kori were naked (sfw) in it. Anyway, listen to and download Mates Of State’s wonderful cover of Phantom Planet’s California while your here.
