In the parody by smosh, suited exec discuss how to improve a boring baby food commercial. While “boobs” were brought up as an option, the eye-patched kook in the corner persuaded them that dubstep was the only way to go.

Did the Fox network super rip off the Arcade Fire?
The band was reportedly surprised to hear their song, “No Cars Go” in a commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. According to PitchforkMedia.com, “Fox never even asked the band if they could use their song, and they certainly weren’t given permission to do so.”
Reportedly, the band’s reps are looking into the matter, and there is the possibility of a lawsuit.
The song was featured in a montage ad for NHL on Fox that appeared during the halftime show. Some fans have pointed out that the song has been used “on NFL on Fox ads throughout the football season.”
