Stars and Stripes is the obvious choice. If you don't know, the original USA flag had 13 stars and 13 stripes.

Only three former AMNRL teams are joining in 2015.

That is a majority.

The comments on You Tube suggest its a bad cover/take of their song rather than an unauthorised use of the original. Could be just an unlucky coincidence or the ad agency have been very stupid. Unless you knew the song - you wouldn't realise the similarity. Probably not RFL fault but suggests they need to find a better ad agency. Don't think we have won any of their fans over.

It's not a coincidence, the whole concept is lifted from the Budweiser advert posted above, which is fine but then they used virtually the exact same music too. Absolute idiocy.

Which Budweiser ad? Do you have ink so we can see the likeness? And a quick search online and I can't find anything about this los campesinos fury.

 

The Los Campesinos posts really aren't hard to find.

Great in isolation but the fact that it's a direct rip-off of a Budweiser advert from a few years ago and the band Los Campesinos are furious about their music being used without permission will probably mean it causes more bad publicity than good, and it might even have to be taken down if the band take legal action. It would have been so easy to just use a different soundtrack so it wasn't such a blatant rip-off, typical RL really to create a great advert and then ruin it with something ridiculous and stupid like that.
