Chinese National Anthem to Used to Sell Wrigley Gum

From NPR:

    A company selling Wrigley’s gum wanted music for a commercial in Russia. It went to an English company, and bought a catchy tune. The commercials aired in Moscow, until the Chinese embassy called to ask why the Chinese national anthem was used to sell gum. The company calls it a “misunderstanding.”

Well, hey, the song is catchy. The Chinese certainly seem to like it. —MEGHANN MARCO
