Rebellion into money

Back in '77 (or was it '78) The Clash sang about 'turning rebellion into money' in their song White Man at Hammersmith Palais.

Fast forward 35 or so years and corporate sponsorship had become an integral part of the music industry.

I'm all for some of this stuff it it helps a band or artist. Well most of the time anyway.

This ad for washing powder however is the finest (or should that be worst) example of turning rebellion into money I have seen.

Truly awful.

Great product demo though!
