What was that old (80s/90s) British TV ad with the boy who comes home from a camping trip and says "Pretty exhausting, really"? I'd like to find it on YouTube if possible, but even knowing the name of the product would help.

AdMusicFilter: Beautiful, haunting piano music from mid-90s Serta commercial. Google is only marginally helpful, and this search has been driving me nuts for over a decade now. Description and best-guess results are inside.
Note: Search terms should include "-sheep" as this predates that campaign. [more inside]

I know I've heard the opening bars of Beck's "Gamma Ray"
in a commercial or promo recently (Telus? The Gap?) but I can't place it and my Google-fu in in the ditch today. Help!

SongFilter: There's a new Sears commercial circulating, and I love the song in it. It sounds like Regina Spektor's voice for part of the commercial, but then it doesn't in other parts. A Google search turned up
a new ad with "Coming Home" by The 88, but that's not the song I'm looking for. [more inside]

While watching the olympics I've seen a few ads with Visa's new slogan, "Life Takes Visa" and I really like the song playing in the background. It seems like a pop/rock song (with a little classical in there too), though it may have been composed specifically for the commercial. So my question: if you've seen the ad, do you know what song that is? (And where I could get it? - hopefully iTunes)

I love some of the commercials for PBS. There is one playing currently that is constructed around the story of Little Red Riding Hood's wolf. Philip Glass' music from The Hours
is throughout, a father is reading the story to his daughter, then gets interrupted by Lara Spencer, Charlie Rose ("In my interview with the wolf, he said he does his own stunts to add more realism to the story"), Jim Lehrer, Bernadette Peters and a couple others who I don't know, who all have comments about the wolf. Is this commercial available online? Does anyone know who made this?
