Johnny Cash's family nixes Ring of Fire hemorrhoid-relief commercial

Advertising writers in Florida were planning to pitch hemorrhoid-relief products with a commercial featuring Johnny Cash's classic song Ring of Fire, but his family says there's no way they'll let it happen

A good move on the part of the Cash family. I'm glad that they had the decency not to let this go forward. The Johnny Cash songbook has many tunes that could be of benefit to advertisers:

Man in Black featured in an ad for The Gap
I Walk the Line as a public service announcement against drunk driving
Boy Named Sue for a civil litigation law firm...the ad writes itself!!

Send in your suggestions!!
