Did T.G.I. Friday’s Lift an LCD Soundsystem Song for a New Ad?

Pitchfork certainly thinks so! The soundtrack of a new T.G.I. Friday's ad is a song that sounds like a generic-y, low-rent version of "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House" (the evidence, in the form of the ad, is below). It's hard to argue with the similarities, so we put in a call to T.G.I. Friday's to see what they have to say, but haven't heard anything back yet. It is Friday (TGIF, right?!), so maybe they're all down at the restaurant kicking off the weekend with some Jack Daniel's ribs and Ultimate Sangrias.
