Songs from the Eighties That Have Been In Commercials, Products Beginning with K
Well, it was bound to happen, and it has been happening now for a while, Commercials bleeding the memory of the eighties, for music. The first one I remember is "Like A Rock" and then "Born in the USA." Now it's food items. What's next? I'd love to hear your recomendations. Please limit it to TELEVISION Commercials though. Radio stations usually mix in background music with spoken ads by the DJ's and the music tends to be used in both radio and television versions of most Commercials eventually.

Kit Kat, using George Thorogood And The Destroyers's, "Bad To The Bone"
Used to promote the new White Chocolate flavor. In this Commercial, a man was sitting on a motorcycle (not riding), the song plays, the man eats a Kit Kat White Chocolate. It was a father that lived in the house where I had a student (a boy) which was in Lounsberry Hollow Middle School in Mr. Paolini's room at the same house Dad (in the commercial) lives. The school is at Sammis Road in Vernon, N.J., so the boy who was in school and the Dad in the commercial lived somewhere Vernon Township. I can't think anything about this ad, what I love about the commercial. This commercial took place somewhere in Vernon Township, or in Sussex County.
