    lol They have been huge on youtube for a long time. I remember I saw the commercial and I was like WITW!? I thought it was so strange to see them on national TV.

    I do like them but they really are not nearly as good as a lot of more traditional bands that are not so project-y and random. Meh not bad though.

    I think it's because they seem so unstructured and goofy that makes me like them.

    Personally, I cannot stand them. If I wasn't recording the game today, I would switch the channel until I could guess it was over. Really don't like them at all.

    Her voice is annoying -- and is basically a carbon copy of some other singer's vocal style (can't remember that singer's name at the moment, though).

    Nah, it's Regina Spektor. Even looks a bit like her.

    This cover by My Terrible Friend is not bad at all.

    I guess it is her side project.

    Hate those commercials, have to mute the TV or pause it for a couple minutes and then forward through them. Simply awful.

    I don't see/hear the resemblance really.

    Those Hyundai commercials are almost as bad as that LG phone commercial where it sounds like an annoying Lisa Simpson clone is singing in the background.

    Pompalmoose is pretty cool. Loved their body of performances on Youtube.
    No accounting for taste for some of you all....;) Though the Hyundai stuff isn't exactly their best format.

    Of course, apparantly there are loads of people who think that Coors commercials are somehow funny. Etc.

    The only difference is that Spektor actually has range both in pitch and tone. For the most part, the Pomplamoose chick has tried to copy her sound to the extent she can.

    I dont know the commercial but sometimes I am so in the mood for something stripped down like this. Ill also go nuts looking for classical piano and violin'n

    Edit- Wow, what an annoying hippie couple they are though

    That's an enjoyable cover. I hadn't heard it before.

    I think it's rather funny that her partner is so animated and looks like he's having a blast, and she looks like she's right on the edge of slipping into a coma.
