OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A trolley advertisement for The Hard Rock Cafe in Boston was a very clear shout out to the Duran Duran song. “Hungry Like The Wolf” was used briefly in a Burger King television commercial until the band (and fans!) made it clear that a fast food joint was not the place to be “cute” with the beloved 80s song.

IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AN OBSERVATION. WE’RE STILL HOPING COHEN’S COMMENT WAS JUST A FIGURE OF SPEECH. HIS NEW ALBUM IS DUE OUT OCTOBER 21st.
