"These bites were made for poppin..."

Actually, the worst is that fucking Applebees Gilligan's Island song that gets played everytime the NCAA tournament goes on a commercial break.

That was pretty bad, but I have to admit the Gilligan's Island one gets less grating each time I hear it.

This ain't good, but could have been much worse:

Imagine steak and scampi,
It's easy if you try,
No greens below them,
French fries on the side...

Couple of random notes:

1) I wanted to create a thread once I heard the WGtM commercial, but hadn't gotten around to it. wd, bing. I'd have named it inappropriately.

2) Next time you dine there, order the 'Crappleby Burger' just to look at the waiter's face. You're paying $8.95 for $2.00 worth of food; you deserve some enjoyment.

This reminded me of one of my all-time favorite TV moments.

Before John Denver's death, Dave Letterman had him on the show to help out with "Stupid Ads" or some crap like that. Dave pulled out a product that looked like one of those 7-11 Slurpee utensils with packaging that read "Imagine: it's a spoon and straw in one!"

Dave then turns to John asking for a song and the latter improvises a fairly recognizable John Lennon tune:

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
And maybe someday you will join us
And the spoons and straws can be as one

Priceless.

Madison Avenue is just like Hollywood these days. Everything is a rehash of something old. Superficial recognition is a sure guarantee of success. :roll:

Where are the maverick jingle writers of today? Where is the next truly unique ode to bologna? What will be the next product to appeal directly to fat kids, skinny kids, and even kids with chicken pox?

Never mind. I already know the answer. The beer marketers have them all. They are the real men of genius.

Whoever wrote, "Expedia DOT COM!!!" is a genius. Come 'round our hose after having watched that commercial - everything is "dot com."

I'm taking out the trash... DOT COM!!!

Make me some coffee... DOT COM!!!

Please pass the salt... DOT COM!!!

Halfiax's advert pissing on Cab Calloway's Mimmy the Moocher. That makes me so angry, I want to go to the nearest branch and barf over the cashiers.
