A Word for Our Sponsor

Dear Blackberry -

If, according to the the music you've chosen for your ad campaign, "all you need is love," why would I buy?

Also, I am really tired of the Beatles getting pimped out by the ad world. Bad show. This is one of the many reasons I am so tv avoidant. Do we thank a posthumous Michael Jackson, Mr. Wings, or Yoko?

Not even just the Beatles in principal.
I'm tired of hearing their "Come Together" in every God damn commercial, from Macy's to Rock Band to T-Mobile to Lexus, and those are just the first four off the top of my head.
I'm not a huge Beatles guy, but Jesus Christ, the band had an exhaustive and eclectic catalog, do we really need to hear the same God Damn song hawking everything from cell phone service to durable goods?

See my rant vis-a-vis "Imagine" on Facebook. Yeah, I know that was Lennon acting on his OFP, but it still applies.
