    I think the problem is when the association becomes permanent in your mind

    If every time you hear Letís Get It On all you think about is Reeseís Peanut Butter Candy thatís a problem and would bother me

    That said this commercial doesnít have that effect on me, neither did the California raisins commercials

    Others do, the ones that comes to mind are Sly Stone Everyday People makes me think of Toyota and Rock you Boat by Hues Corporation makes me think of Pepsi

    Yikes! When am I going to accept that nothing is sacred, and I do mean nothing!

    Good point. There's a drug being pushed with The J5's ABC . I don't want that association!

    the video thing is EASY . when you are creating your reply, have one of those addresses ready by having it copied. then look at the top bar of symbols above the reply you are typing . at the far right there is a turquoise colored film strip. its to the left of the quote box . press it! up will pop a window to paste your address into it. do so and press OK . viola!!
    BTW, this is when using a computer. I am not able , don't know how , to embed using my phone.


    oh gawd ! here's the ABC commercial. Proceed with caution!!

    Would you say the same for some members of Diana Ross' family if her music gets played in commercials? You seem to really have it in for the Gaye family.

    I'd say any use of a Motown song can only be positive to keep all age groups aware of the wealth of talent!

    That's how it was for me as a child.

    Media is powerful if it can awake a young kid to someone's music. Someone young is probably hearing Marvin Gaye right now going "wow he was great". I know this.

    "Let's Get It On" is the ultimate sex song. It's always the one they use in TV shows and films to say "these characters are getting it on".

    "Sexual Healing" is on similar level of sexiness.
