    I used to be a production designer for film and commercials. I can’t tell you the number of times that the director or producer asked for specific audio equipment to decorate a set. Almost always we’d end up having someone deliver to their homes after the shoot and it was swallowed up in the art dept. budget. It’s quite possible I may have done the same thing at some time or another ;0

    Argh. Couldn't get past the first few seconds of that, the commercial that plays before it is better....

    T'wasn't always so. Just days before the release of 'Lola' Ray Davies had to go back to the studio and dub in the words 'cherry cola' instead of the original 'Coca Cola', as some genius at Coke had denied them permission to use the name, squandering a few hundred million free advertising airplays. :(
    Song was modified for British broadcasting rules against "product placement" advertising.

    Nothing to do with Coke at all.

    That's why you can hear both versions!

    That was an interesting video. If you move the space in the title, it's superb ***, which (I think) was the point. The video for Dance (***) in which she features is interesting as well.

    You're not the only one that noticed, but if that's all you noticed you missed a few. In Diddy's office, he's got those 2 pyramid shaped speakers behind him. But those 2 massive towers in front of him (amongst the people at the meeting) also look like they might be speakers. Also, in the Aldous's NY(?) apartment, there's another pair of those pyramid shaped speakers but I didn't notice if they are the same ones in Diddy's office. Also, in the fat guy (what's his name?)'s home there are a pair of see thru speakers made from glass or plexi or something. And that's only the ones I noticed, I wasn't actually looking for speakers.

    Anyway, I doubt any of these are diy.

    FWIW, Get Him To The Greek starts in 2 minutes on M-Fun channel, I'll be watching again. Can't ever get me enough Rose Byrne, I love her. Love her. Love her.
