Re: [F_minor] GG in Simpsons?

Fellow minorites
I found a few more references to GG in pop culture
About 2 years back an insurance company up in Germany used the Aria from the Goldbergs as background music for one of their ads. I cant remember the name of the insurance company or wether they used a GG recording. If my memory starts to kick back in I will let you know.
Legendary german "band" Einstürzende Neubauten have a track on their latest CD called "I kissed Glenn Gould".
Those of us who grew up in the 80s subcultures will fondly remember EN for making a lot of noise. Literally.
Nowdays they have calmed down a bit, due to aging I reckon.
Dutch music comedian Hans Liberg did a GG pastiche in one of his solo programs. I still owe the list a link of said performance and shall let you know once I found it.
As I have said GG rererences in pop culture are rare. Which I find strange, GG would be a perfect subject to be adopted by pop culture.

You are probably aware of this one, but there is an homage to Glenn Gould in the film "the Triplets of Belleville."

It's a scene in a Paris nightclub where a Gould-esque character comes on stage and plays a jazzy version of a Bach prelude. 

What else have you found?
