Now I've Heard Everything

The GTA homage in the Coke commercial was weird enough, given that the game has been so reviled in Congress and by parents groups that I would have expected that such a wholesome brand of Americana usually would have steered clear of any possible cultural taint that could potentially generate popular wrath.

But do my ears deceive me, or is the music in the new Grand Theft Auto IV trailer from composer Philip Glass? Certainly Glass has been interested in having his music paired with computer generated digital imagery for a while, as Monsters of Grace demonstrates, but this seems a counterintuitive choice for a game series that prides itself on street credibility.
