* "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" is also used in a 2014 Cheverolet Cruze clean diesel car commercial: The ad starts with a man coming into a gas station where they greet him by name as the song plays. Then another man comes in and the song stops. He's got a clean diesel car so he rarely has to buy gas; nobody there knows ''his'' name.
