Did you know Gary Numan recorded a song for a 7up ad that was never used? Check

[Via aliveinsound] In 1982, American-based 7-UP got in touch with a UK agency to get a 30 second tune made by someone who was "happening" at the time to advertise their drink. So the agency contacted Gary and offered a £10,000 deal so he recorded 3 pieces of music with lyrics supplied by them. When the recordings were sent to the Americans they had not heard any music like this, and they were expecting something in a punk style as that had just arrived over there so these recordings were never used

There were some pretty amazing 7up ads that did go out though, here are my favorites
