Yeah, I've seen that ad too! Not sure which program it was but it was definitely on Channel 4.
I thought it was really cool! (Well, as far as ads go, I mean...)

I'm sure I'm not the only one to have seen it but they've just been on comic relief (well two of them), they did Puncture repair!! Shame they did such a short song though and I don't know whether they'll perform again tonight.

Yes, short but beautiful, and very poignant in the context of the programme.

I saw it too, and was surprised when they announced that they would perform. I agree very poignant, if a little short, but very moving. I'm just waiting for someone to post it on YouTube.

Yes, it's on the i-player, part 3 about 25 minutes in. Beautifully moving performance.

Agreed - I'll probably never listen to it in the same way again after that. Incredibly moving.

TCD in the new ER trail!
As Al put it, "Elbow are channel 4's bitch!" They're all over the channel, but not the obvious songs or the usual arrangements, i love hearing the "bo unexpectedly!

The One Show had clips of Mirrorball and Puncture Repair as backing to an item on something or other. I'll admit I wasn't paying attention but I heard the music.

its this kind of thing that ingrains a band into a nations concensous - it was the kind of viral marketing that got many a band noticed.

it doesnt always work mind, ironically former alies Alfie split up before the TV companies latched onto their music for TV.

It's not TV, but I heard Starlings played over some boxing commentary on five live last night.

Bizarrely - ITV had a Louise Redknapp prog last night: The Truth about Super Skinny Pregnancies, which had Elbow as the background music all the way through! Yes I know - quality TV!
