Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin wrote “FOL” to soundtrack a spot for Hyundai’s Genesis Coupe. According to the press release the theme of the ad is “The Epic Lap” and will highlight the car’s “fluid design and track-worthy performance.” The commercial premieres immediately before the kickoff of Super Bowl XLIII on Sunday.

  1. Does anyone remember when Smashing Pumpkins were cool?

  2. Corgan’s shiny bald head is getting too much sun.

    I know Cadillac went with all alt-rock and tapped Hum for a commercial, so its nit out of the question But Hyundai? Was Kia too high class for you?

      yeah, but bands WITHOUT money should have the chance. unless billy spent all his royalties on turtle wax for his head.

  5. have the chance who? as if there is a shortage of bands getting their songs played in car commercials

  6. “FOL” cool name of new song!!! waiting!!!!!

  7. I, as an actual fan since Gish can say that I used to meditate and cry in my bed about the content of the pumpkins, but now OBVIOUSLY realize unfortunately – that the pumpkins are no longer such. The Smashing Pumpkins have fallen from grace, sad to say folks, but the music SUCKS.

    Just had a preview of the ad yesterday – Corgan’s version is very Pumpkininny. There’s also a Yo-Yo Ma scored version of the commercial. The spots end with a link to a site where you can make your own cut of “The Epic Lap” – not sure if you can use your own music though…
