This was a homemade, mockup advertisement by (I believe) an
instructor in new media, for a class demonstration. I had never
heard of The Darling Buds, but I remember the song "Tiny
Machine" from this ad when I saw it a few years back:

Speaking of car commercials introducing someone to music...
Many years ago I remember being enthralled by a commercial that showed some fancy luxury car weaving in and out among giant, swinging spheres dangling from cables. I couldn't have cared less about the car (maybe I would have paid more attention if it had been a Mustang). But the background MUSIC...ahh! I loved that music. It made a great impression on me...
Prokofiev - "Dance of the Knights"
(Imagine giant, ominously swinging spheres as you listen)

Then of course there is Trio's "Da Da Da" from the VW commericials. Those wacky Germans! I've always liked this song:

"Da Da Da" is the first pop song that came to my mind. But I don't like it. I think "Urgent" by Foreigner was used in some commercial, an indignity for such a great song. The band's solid "Double Vision" was used in a Burger King commercial.
I'm not sure I have heard that full Ting Tings song before; it sounds good to me. I had heard snippets from the commercial.
