Not everyone is on board with having Train's "Hey Soul Sister" featured in commercials. A new site is urging ad agencies to halt their use of the music group's hit.
"We're tired of hearing 'Hey Soul Sister' by Train in what seems like every other television ad. It's time to put a stop to it," Brad Meyers and Keith Stoeckeler write on their site, Stop Advertising From Pulling a Train.
Meyers and Stoeckler, who are not friends, but met when Stoeckeler tweeted about his hatred of the song and Meyers responded, urge site visitors to submit videos or notices of where they have heard or seen the song used.
Among the spots featuring Train's track: Samsung 3D TVs, the new Katherine Heigl/Josh Duhamel flick "Life As We Know It" and a breast cancer PSA. The song has also been used as a soundtrack in countless TV series and soaps. In fact, shortly after lead singer Pat Monahan performed "Hey Soul Sister" on "CSI: New York" earlier this year, it shot to No. 1 on iTunes.
"With your help," Meyers and Stoeckler write, "we can put an end to this epidemic."
