Watching the Emmy's and it was just on. Kinda strange to hear a Prince song blaring in a commercial.

I just saw it too. It kinda felt gross knowing that Prince would never allow it. Plus it just cheapens the song.

My turn to play a*hole of the day, if bitching and moaning paid the bills, Prince would have been a billionaire. Paisley tours only cover so much of his expenses and royalties another, where else is the money going to come?

Why does everyone forget P sent out a press release saying his music was available for movies,

TV shows, and COMMERCIALS?

So you know the song and the product, yet somehow neither of those are in the title of this thread. Instead, it's a generic one. WHY?

I don’t understand y’all
You do know the estate has bills to pay they can’t just go out and play a show like Prince. I can understand if it was one of his deeper songs
Prince put this body of work out there so it could be worth something when he’s gone. If they don’t get revenue we don’t get Paisley Park or possibly any releases.

I swear I also remember this. Does anybody else remember, or have a link to the press release? I couldn't find it online.

Thanks for posting the link to the press release. I mean, I get the weirdness of hearing Prince music being used to sell a product, but let's not pretend it was something he was against. Hopefully, the estate would have the good taste to not let The Cross be used to sell Crosstown Donuts or something, but Let's Go Crazy being used by Capital One doesn't seem that gross to me.

Unfortunately, without a will, the estate can only execute his wishes that were publicly or privately documented, and obviously even that isn't something they are legally bound to do.

I'm still waiting for Chevolet to get on the ball and use Little Red Corvette for when they decide to do a revamped edition of the Corvette. You know it's only a matter of time until they do.....

Let’s Go Crazy is used for sporting events so is it a big deal? Capital One is my bank. I think there are worse companies that could get his music.
