Cold Play Farming

The Grammy's were held this past Sunday night, and while I didn't actually watch it (haven't in years) I have read much of the news about it.  I feel bad for Whitney Houston of course.  She left us far too soon.  My most vivid memory of her will *always* be her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at the 1991 Super Bowl game.  It simply took my breath away.  I don't think anyone will ever sing that song better than she did.

But what caught my eye on Monday was the video above.  This commercial showed on television in the USA right after Cold Play sang their version of the same song on the Grammy's.  Apparently it was a rather poor performance according to the reviews.  Singing in the commercial is Willy Nelson, and it was written that he "out Cold Played" Cold Play.  I dunno.  All I know is that as a kid from a small farm town in Wisconsin who has a fondness for Willy and well done animated videos, this is pretty cool.

Enjoy!... as I have.
