Sigue Sigue Sputnik and the World Cup

Watching ESPN HD's coverage of the game revealed a commercial for ESPN HD's 2010 World Cup coverage.  The music used?  Sigue Sigue Sputnik.

No fucking shit?

5.1 Surround Sound with Sigue Sigue Sputnik over soccer footage.  That verges on a wet dream.  I'm about one of 561 people who remember this band, and one of 438 who actually like it. 

The players are now taking the field as the commentators talk about the tragedy that befall Nelson Mandela's great granddaughter.  The crowd is, as to be expected, on the verge of explosion.

South Africa.  Mexico.

From what I understand, no host country ever lost its opening World Cup game.  All things considered, I want Mexico to kick some ass.
