This thread "MTV don't pay!" on Flickr started with these lines from Robert:
"I am a television producer at Young & Rubicam in New York City (www.yr.com) and I would like to gain permission from you to use one of you images titled "Faces" for a public service announcement commercial (PSA) for our client MTV. The PSA is for energy/emission awareness and the purpose of the commercial is to try and get more people to help conserve energy. [...]
The commercial is scheduled to air starting the week of May 1st on MTV so we are in a bit of a rush to get your permission."
