I also sent an email to the advertising dept there to see if they can settle the singers on the commercial once and for all. Will let you all know if I get a response. In the mean time enjoy the song! Very Happy

Cool! Usually I hate when popular songs are featured in commercials, like One Way Or Another for Swiffer and I Melt With You for Ritz crackers currently, but for some reason in this case I think its great! Oh, I see in the post above that you can listen to the commercial at 7-Up's website--will have to give it a listen!

Funny how David's favorite drink was 7UP (back of "SOUND MAGAZINE ALBUM") back then! Somebody really did their research!

HEADLINE: Reformulated 7 Up SodaTo Uncap 'Natural' Tack

BODY:


Plano, Texas -- An integrated ad campaign, breaking in early May and taking an "all natural" tack, will support this month's rollout of Cadbury-Schweppes' reformulated 7 Up. The carbonated beverage, whose once-strong market share has slipped to 1.0 and 12th place in soft drinks, per Beverage Digest, Bedford Hills, N.Y., has been shipping since April 1 with "100% natural ingredients," said Randy Gier, Cadbury America's CMO. Television, radio, print and online ads, via Young & Rubicam, San Francisco, will target adult consumers 25-49. The new 7 Up is made from five ingredients the company described as "all natural": carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, natural flavors and potassium citrate. The beverage has reduced sodium content in 12-oz. cans from 75 milligrams to 40.

It does sound like David but David's vocals seem to be more pronounced in the commercial than in the original recording. So, I'm with Scott in thinking it's been redone but is it a re-recording or a remix of the original tracks?

I saw the commercial twice! Once during "7th Heaven" and then "The Apprentice". It was a very "OH MY GOD! HOW COOL IS THAT!" moment. LOL


It sounded like DC to me but I could be wrong...

I think..and I may be wrong....that 7UP is owned by pepsi. If I am right, then I doubt we will see it during "American Idol".

7 Up is now owned by Cadbury-Schweppes, not Pepsi or Coke.
