Jon Spencer Blues Explosion to play Superbowl

Aside from the news that Simon Cowell is going to appear in a Superbowl advert to push the US version of the X Factor (that's quite a big bet riding on the show right there), the most interesting Superbowl advert is probably this one:

It's a car advert, a car advert for a car you can't buy yet, and possibly the dullest creative idea you can imagine - "hey, the car's called a Beetle, because it looks like a beetle, so why don't we do an advert which makes it look like a beetle?"

But on the other hand: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion covering Black Betty.

The great thing about it being on YouTube is you don't have to sit through the sport to see it. The 21st century is brilliant.
