Unexpected KISS moment

Cool! I just saw an advert for Wanadoo, who have obviously launched some kind of new music service. It featured a middle-aged, grey office guy going round the office and then into a meeting, with his face painted up like Gene Simmons! Wicked! Every now and then, he would stick his tongue out, in a very post-modern, 'I am not a sex god at all' kind of way.

The music for the ad, sadly, was not KISS, however. I know I recognised it when I saw the ad, but I've forgotten what it was now. All kind of faded from my mind next to the suit in Gene Simmons make-up.

*wanna see it again now!*

"I saw this and I thought of you..."
It's just been on the telly now. The music is an acoustic rendition of "Heroes" by David Bowie.

Ah yes! I can remember it now you've said. Also jolly good, of course, though DB doesn't stand quite so high in my personal hall of fame as KISS.

Cheers, and I've added you back.

Nice to see you have 'The Wicker Man' on your interests list - that alone is recommendation enough for me!

It's actually in my top three films of all time (whether horror or not), constantly struggling for first place with Peter Greenaway's Belly of an Architect.

Have you been able to see the full-length version (the one with the 'Gently Johnny' sequence in it?

I think it may have been. I didn't actually see that broadcast, but do remember fellow 'Wicker fans' discussing it. It makes much more sense than the shorter version, which was cut to buggery. Howie was supposed to spend two nights on the island in the original script, and does in the longer version of the film - but not in the shorter version which was actually released to cinemas.

There's a great page about the various versions of the film and the differences between them here
