New Wave (Still) Pays

Yet another classic new wave song being used in a television commercial caught my attention last night.
The amazing, battered version of "Money (That's What I Want)" by the Flying Lizards is being used in a Taco Bell television commercial, which I saw several times while watching new editions of "Storage Wars" on A&E last night.
Besides being a great cover, the Flying Lizards' deconstruction of "Money" is looked on with approval by some Situationists and Dada/Fluxus fans, and its use in a commercial brings a wry smile to many of our faces.
