Has anyone else recognized the WWII in HD soundtrack being used in the NBC Olympic “nostalgic” spots?
I feel the need to list everything I’ve ever watched that used the same music from WWII in HD and Vietnam in HD here. Off the top of my head we have:
- Countless episode of Top Gear UK (they use the best music, lbr)
- NBC Olympic coverage
- TNT NBA coverage
- Military Channel shows
- Countless WWII shows History throws together
- American Pickers
- Storage Wars
- ESPN U
- My father’s own football tapes for his HS team
- HBO trailer ads
When a show uses that music all I see is Americans storming the beaches of Normandy or Marines flooding Iwo/the last heli leaving Saigon and I’m going to keep it that way.
