Far be it for BlastEcho to drum up controversy—ok, we lied, we live for it—but we couldn’t help but notice some startling similarities between a certain guitar melody in the intro of a recent Expedia commercial and the opening guitar melody in the 35-year-old Motley Crue song “Merry-Go Round.”
A quick Google search reveals that a mass audience hasn’t acknowledged the similarities, which makes BlastEcho wonder if we’re alone in our humble opinion. Have a listen for yourself. Are we hearing things or is Expedia borrowing a little too generously from the Crue? If enough people take our side, maybe we’ll reach out to the Crue and see if they agree too.
