I pretty much agree with that. I remember Oliver Stone's "The Doors," and the band allowed Light My Fire to be used in a commercial for something stupid like an oven. Ole' Jim Morrison flipped out, and rightly so, since it was without permission. But I got the impression he was worried about the integrity of the music.
But no one remembers that ad today, we only think of the Doors' music as great rock n' roll. The same is true with Airstream - nothing Fox or anyone else does can really touch the legendary reputation of our trailers.
by the way, I saw a new CCD Airstream being used in an ABCFamily cable show about teens that decorate each others' rooms. The kids are all forced to live in the CCD while their rooms are redone, and none of them are too distraught by the temporary living quarters!
