Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit

The advertising for some new video game is using Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit as its background music. The advertising only plays about the last three or four sentences of the lyrics. However, it does sound like Grace Slick who is singing White Rabbit in the advertising.

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all;
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall;
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call;
To call Alice, when she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go;
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low;
Go ask Alice, I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead;
And the white knight is talking backwards;
And the red queen's off with her head;
Remember what the dormouse said,
Feed your head, feed your head stlyrics

During a recent broadcast of some idiot actor award show, This former Boybander "Joey Something" laugheed at some funny comment someone made and he said: "I'll buy that for a dollar". Well,

I think the "I'll Buy That For A Dollar" reference is to the Robo-Cop movies. In the Robo-Cop movies, there are several references to the top tv show at the time in the future Detroit which is has a comedian saying "I'll Buy That For A Dollar".

Sometimes I wonder about references to 60's, 70's, stuff when they appear in product aimed at people who weren't around in the 60's/70's
