In The Navy" was shot on the deck of the USS Reasoner at San Diego Naval Base. Not only that, but the Navy lent full support, including equipment and personnel. So what happened to the commercial? Conservative taxpayers balked at the idea of such a "controversial" group advertising for the Navy, and the spot was scrapped And on May 19th it reached (for 1 week) on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart.
