I didn’t realize that the Sea and Cake got a song placed in a Citibank commercial. I’m not one of those “I don’t watch TV” types, but I download all my shows without commercials and currently about 90 percent of my TV exposure consists of repeat viewings of Eastbound and Down. (As someone who has so far not missed a single episode of Fringe I am not allowed to act intellectually superior to anyone.) 

Stereogum points out that Citigroup got a nice big chunk of bailout money, and so you can sort of say that in some small way the American people are subsidizing the Sea and Cake’s jazz-pop mission
