That Jose Cuervo Ad.

I don't know where else it airs, but you've probably seen it multiple times if you watch Canadian TV.  It revolves around the Rolling Stones' 1972 tour.  The music in the ad?  "Miss You."

Which was released in 1978, on the album Some Girls.

I find that annoying.  If you can get the rights to a Stones tune why wouldn't you use one heard in 1972?  Apparently the ad agency that created it, McCann, figured one '70s Stones tune was as good as another. 

I doubt Mick and Keith care, since they'll get paid for it.  But I personally find it kind of annoying.
