Air Force Reserve Command officials released a statement Feb. 9, following allegations from recording artists claiming their song was used illegally Feb. 7 in a Super Bowl regional TV advertisement.
Recording artists, The White Stripes, posted a statement on their official Web site claiming the Air Force Reserve Command used, "without permission," a "re-recorded" version of the song "Fell In Love With a Girl" in an ad that ran during the Super Bowl.
"The Air Force Reserve commissioned an original piece of music for its one-time, 30-second Super Bowl regional advertisement," said Lt. Col. Leslie Pratt, Air Force Reserve Command director of public affairs. "As soon as we realized there was a question about our ad, we immediately pulled it and have no plan to re-use it. Our goal was only to attract the best and brightest Americans to become Citizen Airmen."
