They're playing "Jingle Bells" in this Cadillac ad, but they got the tune WRONG. It's not that they skip part of the song, it's the "o" of "open sleigh" at the end of the tune. And then they keep repeating the mistake over and over and over. (0:13 in the clip). Is that just to annoy the hell out of us, or what? (I can't imagine it's a copyright situation, where they would have to change something.)

^ You're right!  Every time they hit that note it is wrong!

They're doing it again this year. I think there's more than one wrong note. Also, the bass line forces the wrong chords on the melody for about half of it. But, hey, it got our attention and that's probably what GM had in mind.

Oh jeez, that is disturbing. Yes, maybe a copyright thing, I don't know.

No, they'd still get sued for their version being too close to the original.  More like it's some dooshy hipster take on the song...

Well, per Wikipedia, the song was first performed by some guy in blackface. Therefore, the song is racist and must be banned!

I JUST noticed this last night, saw the ad again a few minutes ago. (I try to tune out this BS)
But yes, why does it drive me nuts....how the Jingle Bells ending is looped for 3/4 of the commercial. It actually becomes slightly annoying. 

Pure junk, like any GM cars. Most likely from the same idiots that brought us "Cadillac - 'Everybody Has a Crew" ad,  --- NO, I don't personally have a f'ing crew, entourage, posse....whatever you wanna call it! DeadConfused

Thank You for posting these condemnations of the "Cadillac Season's Best Sales Event TV Commercial."

The music for the "Cadillac Season's Best Sales Event TV Commercial" is an absolute abomination! The thought that some advertising agency made a healthy profit by putting together a piece of excrement such as this commercial is as enraging as it disheartening. If the advertiser's goal was to rub our noses in excrement, then they succeeded. if their goal was to sell automobiles to people whose intelligence is so low that it can't be insulted, then I guess they succeeded again.

I'm surprised to see I'm not the only one who hates the Cadillac commercial playing
gingle bells and getting the last three notes WRONG !   "one horse sleigh". It grates
on me for some reason.

I detest this ad, I have to hit the mute button as soon as it begins. I also hate the GMC ad with the yuppy couple and thier his and hers HUGE pick-up trucks.
