I recently discovered that Laura's "Gloria" was used in Australia (and possibly other places, too, but the accent in the man's voice at the end of the advertisement is definitely Australian) to promote a brand of car - the Mitsubishi Cordia.

I think it's hilarious, and they re-wrote the lyrics so that the brand name, "Cordia" is sung in place of "Gloria!"

Take a look:

In Poland is the same situation, but with other song! You know that song "I need a hero" by Bonnie Tyler? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7JSnLtdF4w

Haha, I can only guess what they're singing about, but it's certainly a trend. We have a few similar ones in Australia even today for the Holden cars.
