THE WHITE STRIPES TAKE ON A ONE NATION NAVY (RESERVE)

I didn't catch this commercial during the Super Bowl, but apparently, the U.S. Navy Reserves recorded a song that sounds exactly like The White Stripes' "Fell In Love With A Girl." The White Stripes didn't dig it: and Jack White and his team handled the situation with a lot of class.  They don't want to be invovled in promoting military recruitment during a war they do not support, although they do support the military and hope for them to come home safely and soon. See the full statement below. They posted "Fell In Love" and a link to the commercial (which has since come down). Well played.
