As I have been reporting, hundreds of millions of people around the world have been exposed to the work of Hank Williams in the last few weeks.
It started with the Super Bowl when millions saw the Pepsi Max commercial featuring ‘Your Cheating Heart’. That was viewed by over a hundred million people.
The on February 14th ‘Cold, Cold Heart was heard as the soundtrack for a Valentine’s cartoon on the Goggle main home search page. I have read one report that the main Google home page receives over a billion search requests each day.
Then on Sunday February 19th the voice of Hank Williams was heard singing ‘Lost Highway’ on The Simpsons’ 500th episode which reached nearly 6 million in people in the US alone. Of course, for the Simpsons that is just the beginning as the program will be aired over and over again in reruns, and viewed by millions more on DVD and downloads in the years to come.
