The Sea and Cake Song Used in Citi Ad (Video)


The Sea and Cake's "Jacking the Ball" appears in a new Citigroup ad urging you to spend your money wisely. Because, you know, you screwed up this economy. Totally not them (or banks like them). Seriously, it's your fault. Save your money.


Misinformed bank analysis aside, I'm surprised The Sea and Cake haven't ended up in more ads, considering their post-rock woul go well underneath many an advertisement. [Stereogum]

Yeah I saw this yesterday and at first, I was a bit confused. I mean Jacking The Ball is such an old indie song.. but it sounded awesome.

i was totally thrown off. i have been listening to their '90s albums since they came out - playing off like they're new music or something! 'cause they always sound good.
anyway - when that commercial came on, i was like whaaa? why are they playing music from, like, 1995? i loved hearing it - but Citibank?! - noooo!
so obviously i had to google it the next day - strange.
