Anyone know this old Dell commercial - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

Default Anyone know this old Dell commercial

It was a guy singing in the cab of a Semi , i think it was 'cats in the cradle' with a really good beat. it was so popular that Dell put ithe video on their website as a free download. I'm looking to find the video again but I can't remember exactly who sang it or even what song it was.

LOL

Well I remembered the name of the song they remade, it was Godon Lightfoot'* Sundown. I just haven't had any luck finding it.

Gateway'* Campaign
Tonight a TV spot will debut featuring Gateway CEO Waitt and his talking Holstein cow on a road trip, enjoying a mix CD. The two sing along with musician Elwood'* edgy cover of Gordon Lightfoot'* 1974 hit "Sundown." The commercial offers a free "Sundown" MP3 download on www.gateway.com , encourages viewers to burn it to a CD or load it on an MP3 player, and concludes by telling them "Gateway supports your right to enjoy digital music legally."

The TV commercial directs consumers to an all-new area of Gateway'* website, the Digital Music Zone ( http://www.gateway.com/digitalzone/music ) where they'll find:



A free, legal download of "Sundown" plus a selection of other free, legally downloadable MP3s that will be refreshed frequently -- making Gateway.com a destination for music lovers.
Introductions to CD burning and music downloading from the Internet -- without infringing on others' copyrights.
Gateway'* statement on consumers' digital music rights.

Starting Saturday, all 277 Gateway(R) stores will give away CD-R blanks (limit three per customer, while supplies last). This Saturday and Sunday at 4 p.m. local time, all Gateway stores also will host free digital music clinics -- one-hour presentations on how to burn CDs, work with music software, and more.
The TV commercial was created by Gateway'* advertising agency, Siltanen-Keehn.
