Back to school

Whitesnake’s Here I Go Again (the hairspray remake version) is being used in a new Walmart back-to-school commercial in the states:

Thanks to Tracy Heyder for the info.

    Well, I suppose the royalties add to the bank balance for David….

    I guess even if Coverdale didn’t get a single dime from the add I would say that he could make thousands from the free advertisement of his song which is translated into merchandise. Eat your heart out DP family!!!!

    That vid is cute and although I will forever prefer the original version with Jon’s Hammond intro it just goes to show how that song has become a part of American folklore – no mean feat for the two songwriters. Jasper Coverdale probably had a very proud first day back in school (plus some good-natured comments from his school buddies) and Bernie Marsden might buy another house very soon.

    Oh C’mon Stoff…. anytime a song is picked up by an ad exec to promote a product or anything to sell, it is Win Win for the owner of that song. No Matter What the sales pitch is. Hell, that would be a great song for “Depends” to use…… “Here I Go Againnnnnnnnnnnnnn”

    Hey, at least Bernie M. gets a piece of the royalties.
    Presumably David C. doesn’t need the money, but I’ll bet Mr. Marsden could use a few extra shillings.
