I wonder if  their next Bill Withers themed ad will say something like.... 

AllstateThere Ain't No Sunshine When We're Gone.

The Withers song in this commercial was used back in the 90s in my favorite Gap commercial from that particular ad campaign.

Hard to believe this was 20+ years ago:

You meant 'favorite', sarcastically, right?

No, in fact I liked all the ads in that campaign, but that one was my favorite. In the other ones, they used a Donovan song, a Troggs song, a Louis Prima song and others.

I think they aired in '98 or so.

It looks like the commercials aired in 1998, 1999, and 2002. I remember when Gap used these black-and white on white background commercials. Even Oldsmobile did the same thing once.

Probably one of the weirdest commercials I've seen in a while.
