I noticed a few comments on Twitter saying that it was being played during the Golden Globe Ad breaks. Hopefully that’ll keep it at the top for another week. How are the albums doing this week?

Opportunities is now #30 on best selling digital sales in the U.S up from 40 last week. In its second week at #1 dance/Electronic sales, it has sold nearly 4,000 copies.

It’s overall sales are not massive in the states, it was first released in 2006, after a lot of legal hassle. But it had by 2010 sold 109,000 copies in the U.S (Lates figures that I have)

PSB channel subscribers and Youtube views are also on the rise thanks to the commercial. More exposure, broader audience.

Opportunities suddenly jumps to 25 (the highest spot so far) following a week-long trend of slow-dropping in the chart. I guess the commercial is more popular than your average one and is still broadcast widely.

I had to Google this guy - he has a Pitchfork review of the album...

He seems to be a little bit pissed off at the moment

It plays once every hour it seems across a spectrum of channels on US cable, from major networks to specialty channels.

It is being given the widest exposure one could possibly hope for.

On my Facebook page I see younger friends commenting on it. It is new to them!

I asked to someone a few years ago if he could include in one mp3 file, Opportunities (reprise version) + Opportunities (Let's Make Lots Of Money) (Full Length Original Extended Dance Mix). He gave to me the result of it and it's brilliant. It works perfectly well like a full version of the song.
