Billy Corgan’s Hyundai Super Bowl Commercial

Ξ February 2nd, 2009 by Andrew Pakula | → 0 Comments | ∇ Billy Corgan, Music News, Smashing Pumpkins, Video |

For its Super Bowl Ad Hyundai-commissioned a new song by the Smashing Pumpkins, “F.O.L.,” which made its debut right before the big game. The Ad featured many careening turns and some sort of “make your own ad” contest that takes about five minutes of Flash animations to finally get to. Billy Corgan completists out there can grab the track, which is only 3:05 yet sometimes feels like it’s about double that length (perhaps I need to, as Corgan instructs over and over and over and over again, “feel our love”), at the car company’s site.

Here is the commercial:

Ξ November 8th, 2008 by Andrew Pakula | → 0 Comments | ∇ Billy Corgan, Concerts, Music News, Smashing Pumpkins |

While performing on election night in Toronto, Canada Billy Corgan congratulated Senator Barrack Obama on being elected President of the United States. Earlier in the show one fan shouted out “Obama” to which Billy Corgan replied, “Obama? I don’t see any Obama up here… I love my man from Chicago but he can’t help me right now”. Later toward the end of the show when it became clear that Obama had been elected Billy Corgan remarked that he was proud that his country had done the right thing and was optimistic of the future.

Here is video of Billy Corgan congratulating Barrack Obama:
