A while ago we pitched this song for the trailer of Man Of Steel. It was rejected with the following email:
"Thank you for your initial recordings re: Man Of Steel.
I'm afraid the lyrical content of your submission shows a blatant lack of consideration for the sync brief - did you read this?!
It was offensive, factually inaccurate, revealing of the plot, contained a heavily negative and opinionated bias towards the film, referred to characters by incorrect names or by the names of the actors portraying them and the use of profanity was previously stated as unacceptable.
The references and opinions of Christopher Nolan's work on the Dark Knight Trilogy are irrelevant and unnecessary.
The instrumental backing was upbeat and energetic whereas the sync requests something dark and suspenseful.
Please review the sync brief and revise the submission."
To which we responded with:
"I'm sorry I think we misunderstood the brief. We spent some time discussing the best way to amend our submission and settled with the following.
Please find attached the previous submission but with a loud cowbell rhythm to distract from any questionable lyrical content. We've also added laser gun sound effects (royalty free) in place of all profane language.
We hope this is satisfactory and look forward to seeing the complete trailer.
Oliver and Mike"
The "Lasercow" mix can be found as the B-Side to the MP3 available on the link above.
