Has anyone actually seen this commercial? I work at Fox TV here in the US and I've never seen it...anyone remember what network it was on?

I'd like to slip "I'm In Love With My Car" in while DJing early in the evening at the bar I work at if people would actually recognize it now ;)

I have seen it mostly played on A&E and CNN. Jaguar is an expensive car without a doubt, and thus the commercial plays on channels catered to viewers with higher incomes. I've seen it recently added on ESPN and VH1, too. In one span recently, I saw the Jaguar ad, with Roger's great voice, followed by some random ad, and then followed by the Viagra ad with We are the Champions! So that was two Queen songs in one commercial break! Fantastic.

You know what I find absolutely hilarious is that between the Jaguar commercial and the Viagra commercial they are truly selling the male mid-life crisis.

Take Viagra and buy a Jag.

LOL!

Sorry to sound so cynical but it is rather funny!

I've seen it numerous times but I saw it this morning twice on NBC in the space of two minutes... made me smile.

and still nobody has even thought about recording the audio track (at least) cause it might be a new recorded version?

I heard it--no new recorded version, just the track as it is from ANATO. I heard it playing in the living room, so I ran in and watched the rest of the commercial. Silver Jaguars spinning while Roger sings, "The machiiine of a dreeeaaammm..." It's neat to see. But it was only once.

I think they knew that to use a rock band in an expensive, classy car commercial that they needed a classy band ;)
