Video: DieHard keeps Gary Numan "stable for days"
DieHard battery ad with Gary Numan – Click above to watch the video after the jump
How could we forget about the fantastic 1980's synthesizer-heavy hit "Cars" by Gary Numan? Not only is it an infectious tune, it acts as a sort of an ironic new-wave theme song for automobile enthusiasts. Now, some three decades later, Numan has paired up with the DieHard battery folks for a new ad showing just how powerful their car batteries are – a single one is apparently enough to handle Mr. Numan (who is looking moderately creepy in his old age) playing his oddly dispassionate hit on the horns of a whole fleet of cars.
See the commercial for yourself in the video after the jump, and if you've never heard the original song (or seen the original video), it's available for your viewing and listening pleasure. Good luck not getting it stuck in your head. Thanks for the tip, Chris!
