As much I love Harry Chapin's music, I was overcome with an eerie feeling when I saw "Cats in the Cradle" being used in a Nissan commercial.
The theme of the commercial was "With Dad". The father in question is a race car driver who doesn't spend a lot of time with his son. In one scene he is involved in a car crash from which he walks away.
But when I watched the car crash I asked my roommate, "Don't these people know that Harry Chapin died in a car crash?"
Apparently, I'm not the only one who had a squeamish reaction.
If nothing else perhaps more people will become curious about Chapin's music.
