I see Brian has sold One Vision, apparently the band's tribute to Dr Martin Luther King, for use by British Gas in their tv advertisments. Just what Dr King would've wanted ...

Great ad.

Love British Gas and the direction they're heading in.

One Vision is apt.

The one vision ad was the 1st time i heard it today and we already have somebody to love with confused.com

loooks like brian and roger are letting the songs be used as part of whatever publicity thing for 40th anniversary of queen

The more people that can appreciate Queen's music and history the better imo

I actually like the edit they've made for the Gas ad.  Would love to hear it in full, without the voiceover!

One song
One ad
One cheque
One more sell out

I had a dream, when I was young
A dream of filthy lucre

Four syllables?  Really Holly? Four syllables?  I think we're virtually guaranteed that somewhere in Britain last the night the zombified remains of Freddie Mercury clawed themselves out of the ground groaning "No!  No!  It still doesn't scan! It still doesnnnn't scaaaaannnnn."

You probably totally ruined Mary's nice yard.

Darn. Usually no one pays attention to me anyway, so normally these slip through the net.

How about ...

Once more Queen sell out.

I think that's probably OK.  But just in case, don't go out or answer your door for the next 127 hours.  I'd miss you terribly if you were eaten by the undead.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned that at the end of the advert as the car zooms past the last planetoid, Freddie Mercury and his long friend Mary Austin are stood there!!! I thought it was a very nice touch :-)
