Badly Drawn Boy

During the hours upon hours that Fogbot has been spending on the couch and in front of the tele watching the 20th Winter Olympiad, Fogbot has heard Badly Drawn Boy's song "All Possibilities" being used to advertise for Target.

Badly Drawn Boy is one of Fogbot's favorite artists, and the two superstars (minus one Fogbot) spent some quality time together on BDB's last trip through town in October 2004.

Fogbot's not sure how he feels about Badly Drawn Boy selling his songs to corporations for their usage, but this isn't the first time that he's done so. BDB sold a song a few years back to Gap, justifying by saying something along the lines of, "I had just bought a house and I used the proceeds to pay off the mortgage."

Decent justification, as far as I can tell.

Hope Damon got a Ferrari for his troubles this time around. Or at least a nice bike. Maybe even a BMC SLT01.
