Insert bad cat joke here….

Well this commercial featuring Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) covering David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” has been showing for long enough for most of you to have seen it.  Let me be the first to say that I have gone back and forth on what I think of Ms. Marshall’s music, but this cover sucks!  She does a disservice to a great song and I am really disappointed that Lincoln probably just used her to try to get the Indie/Hipster cred or the add agency had some really hip kids who wanted to be cool.  Either way they have made me not want to ever buy a Lincoln again.  Poor poor David Bowie…….  Chan sounds much better when she isn’t whisper/breathy singing and I wish she would learn this.
