Commercial Rock Juggernauts

Back in 2001, when the White Stripes released their breakthrough album White Blood Cells, it wasn't long before the floodgates opened to the mainstream with other like-minded rock revivalists.

One of which was Andrew W.K. and his punchy I Get Wet album. But besides a common penchant for blues based no-bullshit rock (and fantastic red-splashed cover art), Jack White and Andrew Wilkes-Krier also share a serious streak for self-promotion.

To wit, both of these guys have composed a commercial jingle for a famous red&white themed snack. Which do you prefer?
