Songs in Commercials, Petra Haden edition

This one deserves its own post. After searching for a few weeks, it looks like we finally have a full-length version of the Petra Haden's cover of "Let Your Love Flow" from the Prius commercials (original by the Bellamy Brothers, who haven't had this much hoopla since they looked like this). And better yet, Toyota is offering it as a free download on their myspace site. The commercial itself is worth posting. From a press release issued by Toyota's ad agency:

They employ a cinematic technique to depict the harmony between man, nature and machine. A utopian landscape is made entirely out of people - the sun, clouds and even blades of grass are depicted by people moving in unison.

How cool is that? I should be feeling like such a sucker for the marketing man right now but this commercial is so good that I don't feel bad for liking it.

Bonus! Here's the original, too.

Now if only the admen would release "Dream in a World of Candy" by Melanie Horsnell, my world would be complete!

(I think it ran a couple of years ago in an Oreo commercial. It was uber-catchy.)

Box.net says that you are out of bandwith, therefor the downloading option is not available to your song links, just so you know.
Thanks though!
