Pete to sell stuffs??

i am from india, I and some of my friends are absolutely outraged at the new advertisement for Zen car
they are using Pete Seeger's 'little boxes' to sell stuffs? and it is such a horrible picturisation as well, people are moving around dressed in packing boxes looking at the car.
that is totally unacceptable, I don't know how this has happened
i am looking for ways to protest against this.
if anybody has any idea please comment.
I remember michael jackson doing a similar blunder, trying to sell Beatles lyrics (revolution) to sell shoes. he faced stern opposition and Nike had to take the ad off air.
i wanted to bring this to the notice of all admirers of pete
