Does This Pizza Hut Commercial Rip Off Black Keys?

Anytime you have to ask a question like the one in this headline, the answer is usually a big and obvious “yes.” This time around, though, I’m not so sure. Internet scuttlebutt says that the Pizza Hut ad below sounds uncomfortably close to the Black Keys’ unstoppable stomp “Gold On The Ceiling.” But despite a suspiciously Auerbach-esque “wrroooaaaw” near the end, this one sounds more to me like Generic Rock Music. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Of course, the idea that one person’s “Generic Rock Music” might be another’s Black Keys hit doesn’t say anything good about the Black Keys. I like “Gold On The Ceiling” a lot, but I’m just saying.
