This video shows recent TV ads for all the usual stuff. There are sad pianos, somber voice-overs, but still, all the same, buy a car. Ad agencies are all cranking out the same maudlin haunted bullshit because they can't think of any other way to market things during a pandemic. Many use uncannily similar language, too.
There's one pair which appear to have the same tragedy tune: a reminder that if you're licensing the top result for a simple seach term from a music library, you should pay extra to own it outright.
I like how ads have gone from "buy a toyota" to "this is a difficult and uncertain time for us all…buy a toyota"
