Improper use of our National Anthem?

I was shocked and appalled today to hear a BMW commercial on WBZ (1030 AM)
that used the Star Spangled Banner as its music bed. The spot appeared to
be a national one tagged at the end by one of the usual WBZ production guys.
I was beside myself that BMW would do this and that CBS would allow it to be
aired. At one time CBS was known to have the toughest "Standards &
Practices Department" in the business. If this is any indication then they
must have eliminated that department altogether. Am I over-reacting or is
this a reprehensible use of our National Anthem? Your comments are
appreciated and solicited.
