Does Governor Mitch Daniels’ Campaign Commercial Borrow From Disney?

Any one else notice that the music from Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels’ campaign commercial Change That’s Working, sounds a lot like Disney’s, Pirates of the Caribbean theme?

Not really, it's called Mutiny on the Sea by Mark Petrie. Check out his site here.

He's a New Zealand born composer who mentored under legendary composer, Mike Post. He works out of LA scoring documentaries, obscure movies and TV commercials. So there you go! House of Mouse conspiracy averted.

  2. I wonder if his advisers had been hitting the rum. “Hey, lets make Mitch sound like he’s a pirate. Everyone likes pirates!”

    According to the dictionary: A pirate is a person who robs or commits illegal violence at sea or on the shores of the sea. Any plunderer, predator, etc.: confidence men, slumlords, and other pirates. A person who uses or reproduces the work or invention of another without authorization.

    Not sure a politician really should want to be thought of as a pirate.
