Beatles Fans: Anyone put off by the the new Blackberry commercial where they’re singing “All you Need is Love”?

Question by Dave Tripper!: Beatles Fans: Anyone put off by the the new where they’re singing “All you is ”?
but they’re SAYING “All you need is Blackberry”!! I don’t like the vibe at all…using Beatles philosophy to hawk expensive commercial products that have nothing to do with the song…how about you?!

    Yeah, my grandma pointed out that there was a commercial with the song (everyone I know has to point out everything Beatles to me…). It’s great hearing them on TV and the radio all the time, but I’d rather they not use a message of love to promote some expensive material possession…

    To be honest with you I’m not that put off. I know it bothers a lot of Beatles’ fans when they use their songs in commercials…but as far as I’m concerned I consider it a tribute and a testament to how great their music was that they’re still using it 40 years later to communicate with people…It almost makes me proud. Besides, I’m for anything that’ll get a new generation familiar with the Beatles’ music.

    Macy’s and Luvs diapers is also doing it.

    yes,because number 1 it totally goes against the message of the song and number 2.somehow i don’t think that when john wrote that song he went around to the other beatles and said “hey paul,george,ringo,i just wrote a great phone ad!”i mean at least use all you need is love to promote the peace corps or some other organization that is designed to promote social change,as opposed to something that is little more than an elaborate cell phone.

    I agree, I totally can’t stand this commercial because I don’t like it when people use Beatles songs for stupid commercials just so that they can get money for the phone companys. ): And actually the other night when this commercial came on, I said I can’t stand this commercial and my Dad said why not? and I said because I hate it when they use Beatles songs for things like this that don’t even have to do with The Beatles.

    Hm haven’t seen it but I don’t have to to know I’m gonna hate it
    I also hate Target and Macy’s for ruining “Hello Goodbye” and “Come Together”. Mostly Target cuz the Jo Hoes sing it.
