Try listening to the whole song next time

Ok, so this would be stupid use of a song in a commercial number 2,358. Mitsubishi is using just the first line of a song, a Flaming Lips song.

Do you realize – that you have the most beautiful face

Problem is the rest of the verse goes like this:

Do you realize – we’re floating in space –
Do you realize – that happiness makes you cry
Do you realize – that everyone you know someday will die.

Granted most people haven’t heard the whole song, but from now on Mitsubishi automobiles will remind millions of Flaming Lips fans of the mortality of their loved ones. — Mitsubishi Galant, Times Two
