Ok, this is kind of a spin off from the "Covid-themed-ads" thread; however this topic is more about a trend rather than a specific commercial:

To be honest , I didn't read all 13 pages of the above thread, so hopefully my question hasn't already been answered. However, I'm eager to discuss an observation that I've had over the past few months. In short: Has anyone noticed the same short piano tune used by commercials and other forms of Covid related media?
(Right now I have the themes to two other commercials I recently posted about in my head, so I don't have an example to post, but will try to remember to do so in the future)

There are variations. But generally sounds like "Covid, covid, covid music. This is covid, covid, covid music." Now I turn off either the channel or the sound whenever the tune comes on.

On a related note here are a few other media sources that have notice similarities in advertising concerning the pandemic:

Forbes:

Washington Times:

Finally, here is a link (as it will probably get buried) to my post (you'll probably have to scroll down) about my top two commercial offenders during the pandemic. Oddly they doesn't have the piano tune.
