I’ve been seeing this commercial for Weber Grills a lot the last week, and it’s very summery. You might notice that the song sounds strikingly similar to “I Gotta Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. In fact, it’s by a band called Open Sky. Apparently, it was too expensive to gain licensing rights. Here’s the full version of the song. I like this ad. Despite my hatred of the Black Eyed Peas, this tune sounds great. And the dancing actually looks more fun than dorky. There’s a number of remixes of this spot on YouTube, along with the original, which has been around for more than a year. Weber should also be praised for its commitment to the American worker.
