Name this music

In the new Nike "For Warriors" ad (click the "Watch the TV ad" after the flash intro), they are playing a clip that I know I have somewhere in all my CDs and MP3s. But after a couple of days of pouring through them all I can't find it. Can anyone name the music?

Really arresting advertisement, isn't it? The song is Migration by Cop Shoot Cop.

And you were actually "poring" over your collection, I hope. "Pouring" can damage CDs and electronics.

Cop Shoop Cop of course!!! I was thinking Foetus but I knew that wasn't quite right.

Excuse my use of extra vowels Mr. Davis.

Holy crap, Cop Shoot Cop has a Nike commercial. I think the next step is the moon turning to blood and a plague of locusts.

Is that the one where the guy's head turns into a venus flytrap? Pretty cool but it didn't really put me in a shoe-buying mood.

As an aside, does anyone know where the name "Cop Shoot Cop" comes from? Only asking because I'm a big fan of the Spiritualized song of the same name.

What an awesome ad! Hate Nike but love their ads!

I remember an old interview with CSC where they said it was a reference to the cyclical nature of heroin: you cop, you shoot, you cop some more.
