Padding Jeff Lynne's Afro

Lily Allen Does 'Mr. Blue Sky' for French Cell Co.

By Published on .

Artist: Lily Allen
Song: "Mr. Blue Sky" (ELO cover)
Marketer: SFR
ELO has been dormant for a while, but with songs in big campaigns this year from Sears, Honda and French mobile giant SFR, Jeff Lynne can probably afford to lay low and buy rhinestone afro picks from eBay for at least another year. If Lily Allen's new spot for SFR catches on, he might even be able to keep a steady supply until the next reunion tour.

SFR has been using the original "Mr. Blue Sky" in its ads for a while, but apparently when they signed on Lily Allen, her version of the song came along with the deal. There's also some speculation that it could be the first new single from her upcoming sophomore album, which would be a serious boon to the mobile co. Maybe I'm nuts, but the existence of cover art seems to answer this question.
