This time I'll actually hit the PASTE button.. lol.

Please note the AD is named "GIRL" below.. NOT the song..

Read carefully before correcting..

: : Another question answered wrong on the last board -- the song in the GAP ad is not titled "Girl". That is the title of the ad itself. THe song is "Digital Love", by Daft Punk.

: I posted the official responce from GAP.COM reps..

: You are correct, but you read my reply wrong.. my post listed ALL the ADS..
: The AD is called "GIRL" I was merely telling people which paragraph to read the answer in..

This is for Fantasticx, katienmd and anyone else who wondered what the music was in that ad.. sorry its so off topic, but the question was posted on board 298 and it wont let me post to an archived board, nor would it let me follow up via email.. so everyone gets to learn what I found out..

I just got this back from customer service at

Enjoy... The correct answer is the one for "GIRL".

Original Question and my answer follows:

: Can anybody help me: what was that song in the Juliette Lewis/dancing robot commercial?

: Also, kudos on the film. Love the music...
