I don't have live tv in my house (just streaming) and I've seen it on tv! So it must be being pushed pretty hard.

What do people think of it?

I have to admit, the single has grown on me, but the ad feels like Vertigo redux.  I'm not a Vertigo fan... cloying and over the top.  Miracle and this ad feel like Vertigo's little brother.  As well as another U2iPod launch.

I saw it Sunday night during The Simpsons. The Miracle has officially ear wormed me.

It will be the first of many worms to come...  ;)

This bad of an ear worm, or just a regular ear worm?

So far it is a good ear worm. . . found myself humming and singing it at odd moments.

I saw it during Doctor Who on Saturday night. That was in BBC America.

This commercial is an example of why so many people crap on U2.  I've actually come around on the album quite a bit, but the commercial is pretty stupid.

My very first thought when I saw it was "Not the Explorer!"
