Media Observation: Sunday Night Is HBO Nite But I’m Perplexed

Tonight is HBO night and–in between “Deadwood” and “Entourage”– the great cable tv station aired the fabulous Etta James singing ” A Sunday Kind of Love” for a fall promo of “new” movies, like “Walk the Line”, “Brokeback Mountain”, “Harry Potter”, etc.

But didn’t HBO know a major jeans ad uses the same song for their product? The “Sunday Kind of Love” song’s been running on that ad for a couple of months now.

I love Etta James and the song is great-but, HBO, you put out the best, MOST ORIGINAL shows I’ve ever seen–couldn’t you have come up with a different theme song for the fall flicks?

(I almost felt embarassed–like HBO was copying an ad).
