anti-drug commercial

I heard there was an anti-drug commercial being played here
in the US that uses an Aphex Twin song. Can anyone verify
this? If so what song is it?

It's true. The song used is "4"

Even though RDJ has been quoted saying he has tried various
drugs, I enjoy the irony of using his music for an anti-drug
commercial. It\'s fun to roll and listen to \"4\" is what I
think they\'re really trying to get at..?

It is very ironic IMHO. Personally I think some marketing
guy was joking around and recommended the song... the big
heads, not knowing the scoop liked it and gave it the
go-ahead. Just a thought though. =] Thanks for the info!

In answer to anyones questions about this commercial: I've
realised that the work on that commercial was done by the
good people at presstube.com then called halfempty.com. I
cam on this connection just by chance. You can see the
original work here:

http://www.halfempty.com/james/intro1.htm

I realize that it is simply the opening loop from '4'
repeated over and over again. I realize that it was simply
the work of the halfempty people and RDJ probably had
nothing to do with it, except that they possibly requested
rights to put it on TV from Warp.

So the point is that no, there is probably no connection
between the commercial and Drukqs.

If anyone has a chance check out the work on presstube.com
its some fucking amazing flash. They won Flash Forward 2001
for the art section.

It doesn't surprise me at all...because anyone who likes
aphex will probably like presstube, and anyone who likes
presstube will probably like aphex, check it out and see
what I mean.
