Yep,they play that commercial during Yankee games all the time,too.If you listen closely,you can tell it's not The Romantics version,it's somebody else covering the song.

No, I don't think you have to listen too closely to tell its not the Romantics.  It's an elevator music version of "What I Like".  Truly awful, but if the Romantics are being paid for it, it's ok!

They are have been playing it to death during the Olympic games too!  Who knows how it works about getting paid for a version that is not your own!  A deja vu perhaps?!!

yes, i thought the same thing when i saw that commercial. that has to be the most popular song for alot of companies with tv commercials. that has to be the 3rd car commercial that i have heard that song if im not mistaken.

Dennis, I agree.  A pretty weak, soft version.

Yep. People all the way down here in Georgia are mentioning it to me and we heard it the other night! It's getting a lot of airplay!
Hey Dennis- glad to see you're okay!  I've worried about you all week....thought you might still be at the Santa Fe....

They just played it twice in the last 2 minutes!  I have heard it at least 100 times already in the past week!

You never know unless you try right?!!! Smiley  But the way suitcases get lost nowadays, I don't know if hiding in the suitcase is the way to go!!

I know, I shoulda stayed in his suitcase. I coulda been in the middle of Japan or somewhere by now. I tried to get to the airport in time to stowaway on his plane to Detroit, but I think I was told the wrong directions in an effort to throw me off. Might have been a conspiracy!

Been away for a while on vacation, but the commercial keeps popping up everywhere and it really bothers me that they didn't use the Romantics version!!! Any idea who the heck is covering it?

It's either the Toyotanics or the Toyotanoids.

I'm a huge fan of "My Name is Earl".... but I didn't get to watch it much last season, so I bought the DVD.

I'm watching the 3rd episode and what do I hear???  "What I Like About You"!!!!!!!!!!!! AND... it's the Romantics Version!!!

Woo HOO!!!! Smiley
