Pink Moon

Troubled English folk-rock troubadour Nick Drake enjoyed a genuine revival in 1999, 25 long years after his apparent death by suicide in 1974, when the haunting "Pink Moon" was used in a TV commercial for Volkswagen. The promo, which comprised a slightly surreal, nocturnal set piece, eventually brought a full-blown new-millennium renaissance which saw the publication of new career compendiums, rarity collections and even an album of home demos. Check out the commercial which brought Drake back from the brink of obscurity to the heights of singer-songwriter adulation.
