Volkswagen commercials

There has been a lot of talk about Wilco selling a bunch of songs from Sky Blue Sky to Volkswagen for some  TV-commercials. (I saw it first on Stereogum, there was even an official statement from the band, which I first saw on Pitchfork)

The story gets a special twist, when you read the recent interview with Comets on Fire on Pitchfork, concerning last year’s album Avatar (which I recommend):

Ethan Miller: Take a listen to the record. Come on, do you think these songs are going to be in Volkswagen commercials?

I don’t think it’s connected, but it still made me smile…
