Depeche Mode - "Wrong"

We're a little late to this party, but there's this wisdom in the advertising business that it doesn't matter how awful an ad might be, if the people remember it and associate it with your brand, it's great. That's what Depeche Mode have done with their video for "Wrong," a not-outstanding song, but a video you'll never forget, once having seen.

This wouldn't load for me, man. I won't try again because you said the song is no good. I saw an ad on television for the new Depeche Mode record. What is that about? If you've got money to promote your record on TV, you must suck.

I still cry when I spin "Speak and Spell," which--while it is not as gloriously beautiful as Kraftwerk's Computer World--is a very special record, indeed. Try to have a bad day after listening to "New Life."

These DailyMotion embeds are a bear to get playing --- I have to click 5-10 times on the play arrow to get things moving. YT is better and easier, but the vid's been yanked there....
