Who sings the "Pictures" song in the HP commercial

You guys have seen the Hewlitt Packet commercial where they sing a song something like this:

"Pictures paint pictures of your mother, taken by your brother a long time ago"

You've heard it, right? Does anyone know the artist and songname?

TIA...

Yep...one of the best bands ever.

I love the way that commercial is done, exceptionally clever and smooth.

Best ad campaign in years!

I like that song too. "Picture Book" I think it is. We already bought it for the iPod.

Yeah, that song rocks. I think the commercial and the song compliment each other.

Thanks for the link, TankGirl!

Generally, commercials stink nowadays but that is a great commercial (I'm talking about the one of the guy sitting at a desk with the pictures).


Another one that came out recently that I like is the "Lime in the Coconut" Coke commerial.

I love the Lime in the Coconut song - it's on the Practical Magic movie soundrack CD. I have not heard that one in years!

Now this Kinks song has been in my head for days....
