I just saw the latest ad for Heineken beer, and the singer looks and sounds an awful lot like the late Amy Winehouse. I'm sure that she's just some lookalike / soundalike, but its kind of creepy.

That woman really wants to be Amy Winehouse, except I don't think that Amy Winehouse, not even at her absolute worst, would ever write song lyrics that crappy.
 
"I wanna write what I want you to do to me in a letter". It's almost as though she just sort of improvised the words to the music, because it almost sounds too specific and too verbose to fit in there.

Is this the one?  If so, I like it.  I have a thread on it in "Commercial Talk".
 
 
I never thought about the Amy Winehouse similarity, but I tend to agree.  Then again, Winehouse channeled a 60s style of music herself, so even her look/sound wasn't completely original.

I'm sure I'm just taking the commercial way too literally, but what does that letter song have to do with drinking beer? 

Oh - it doesn't. I see. I thought not. Hmm....

That actually is an Amy Winehouse song though I'm not sure if that's her. Whoever it is, they look horrible.

Someone on the 'net pointed out that Amy Winehouse died of acute alcohol poisoning.
 
But the band in the commercial is Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes.  I think they're pretty good.  Here's something else by them.

Why do commercials have to use such sad emotional songs? It gets quite annoying.
I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
