GTA Vice City Commercial

Not sure if this is the right forum but I couldn't think of a better place to put it.

What is the name of the song that is played during the GTA Vice City commercial?

One of the better videogame commercials ever made, I'd like to add...

and it actually shows videogame footage for a change.

Cool. Thanks. That song has been bugging me for a while now. It is the best videogame commercial ever.

I can't believe how popular Flock of Seagulls is becoming from that commercial. I hear it on the radio now with people requesting it as "that song from vice city."

It's funny that you mention that. I went on a road trip with some friends this weekend, and one of the CDs played was a 80s compilation. Well, when "I Ran" started, I immediately thought of Vice City. The problem is that I remember it playing on the radio when it was a hit. I guess it goes to show that perceptions can change due to a good commercial. Hmm...

Every single videogame commercial I've ever seen has had videogame footage in it... This commercial is REALLLY old, I was hoping that they could've created another commercial instead of just re-running this one...

Anyone remember the music video from "I Ran"?

Classic early 80's video. It looks like they made it themselves in their basement (which they probably did). And how about that hairstyle.
