Name that tune.

See if you can spot the similarity between these two spots.

Chrysler's new anthem spot from Sunday's Golden Globes telecast:


VW's "Big Day" from 2001:


The funny thing is that music was recorded specifically for the VW spot. Seems to me if you're gonna spend all the scratch to shoot that Chrysler spot you'd pony up a little extra for something I haven't heard and already associate with another car maker. Also, VW's is hands down better.

You're right; that's exactly the same music! How weird! Is that plagiarism?

Oh it happens all the time (think about Christmas ads that all use that same dee-dee-dee, dee-dee-dee song) but to use an original piece of music created for another car brand is rare. For good reason!
