Cake's ultra-catchy 'Short Skirt / Long Jacket,' from the 2001 album 'Comfort Eagle,' the new iPod Nano 6G commercial features absolutely nobody dressed in that particular outfit.
But there's plenty of sharply-dressed male and female torsos all clipping the new Nano onto their clothes, as Cake's dry guitars, steadily propulsive drums and flourishing horns roll by.
Meanwhile, lead singer John McCrea plainly states his demands for prospective female dating candidates in his typically understated, humorous manner:
"I want a girl with the right allocations / Who is fast and thorough and sharp as a tack / She's playing with her jewelry / She's putting up her hair / She's touring the facility and picking up slack / I want a girl with a short skirt and a long long jacket."
Cake has released five albums of brainy idiosyncratic guitar rock over their twenty year career. They recently told the Montreal Gazette that a sixth album, 'Power Ballad of Justice,' has been completed and is due to be released early in 2011.
