An upside-down pop/soul band appearing in a 1988 TV ad for McEwans Lager. The band was voiced by real Scottish band The Love Decree, who managed to chart a top-100 UK hit with the song in the commercial, "Something So Real."

Fun fact: The ad was directed by Steve Barron, who also directed Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean," A-Ha's "Take on Me," Eddy Grant's "Electric Avenue," Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing," and the Human League's "Don't You Want Me," "Love Action," and "(Keep Feeling) Fascination."
