In the media[edit]

The Teddybears' single, "Punkrocker" (featuring Iggy Pop), is featured in a Cadillac television commercial directed by Daniel Askill, titled 'Roll' and features a time-line of Cadillac automobiles, from the original 1902 Cadillac to the 2007 Cadillac XLR sports convertible. The song also appeared in the background of a scene of NBC's Bionic Woman.

Thomas Rusiak's version "Hiphopper" can be heard in Kevin Smith's 2001 film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Music video[edit]

The music video portrays parts of New York's skyline at nighttime. Everyone's (except Iggy Pop who is seen in a car) head is replaced with a bear (so is the Statue of Liberty seen at the end.)
