MLB’s “Land of Hope And Dreams” spot

Posted on 29 August 2012 by Caryn Rose (2)

The edit of the song RUINS the song completely. It chops it up and ruins the momentum and grace. Plus the need to literally put trains in the beginning of the song… well, it’s typical MLB to do something so lowest common denominator, but I can’t believe that Bruce approved it.

It is one way to get your music in front of a new audience.

The worst part is seeing a MLB logo superimposed on Roy Bittan’s piano and a Springsteen song turned into a commercial for the Yankees.

    This is so sad. Bruce was the last holdout, the one guy who didn’t let his music be turned into advertising. So much for that.
