(Uproxx)   Has it penetrated your subconscious and lodged in your cranium too? The most damnable, pervasive and pernicious jingle yet. OMG make it stop "Fishy McBites, McBites. Fishy McBites, McBites.... Fish-ay Fish-AY"   (uproxx.com) divider line 57

Meh.  The earlier campaign for the Filet-O-Fish sandwich was better.

What are these commercials you speak of?
 
2013-03-13 07:28:22 AM  
Last night, I called my wife because she was working late. When she picked up, I sang "Fishay-Fishay". I wanted to suicide bomb McDs for it.
 
2013-03-13 07:29:10 AM  
Yo Submitter, I'm really happy for you that you got a greenlight on this and Imma let you finish but "Give me that Filet-O-Fish" is one of the the worst jingles of all time... one of the worst jingles of all time.
 
2013-03-13 07:31:37 AM  
"The Atlantic Pollock you love, only smaller"

That's some mighty fine fish marketing there, McLou...
 
2013-03-13 07:31:57 AM  
I thought they were going away.  It is never a good sign when McDonalds has a "Manager's Special" every day for 1/2 priced Fish-ay.

I think they are disgusting and I am one of the guys who gets excited when McRib comes back.
 
2013-03-13 07:37:34 AM  
Never heard it, and I watch way too much TV.

McD's cashier: "Do you want to try our new fish bites?"
Me: "No, does anyone?"

Haven't heard the jingle.

"so anyway i'll have a big mac and hot apple pies"

And this is why I go to every length possible to avoid commercials.  It's so nice to not have my ear holes raped by shiatty jingles every 10 minutes.

Fish-ay fish-ay!

This may be the ad that finally gets me to pay for Pandora (or use another music service).

Fish bites, fish bites, roly-poly fish bites
Fish bites, fish bites, eat 'em up, yum
 
2013-03-13 08:09:15 AM  
pro-tip:  fish mcbites are the same exact thing as chicken mcbites

all they did was change the name

and now your body THINKS they're completely new
 
2013-03-13 08:11:26 AM  
Stop trying to make Fish McBites happen.

"All of them."

For me, the most annoying commercial soundtrack is the one for Capitol One with the rock climbing and
the woman screeching "SOMEBODY LEFT THE GATE OOOOOOPPPPEEEENNNNN...."

Apparently, its an actual song that goes something like this.

Gimme dat filet o fish - gimme dat fish

All time classic commercial for me
 
2013-03-13 08:39:04 AM  
Fish is one of those things you really don't want to go down-market for.  McD's uses the cheapest stuff they can, processed to hell and back.  It's bad enough with beef, but I can't imagine the hoops they jump through to make these fish nuggets edible.
 
2013-03-13 08:41:24 AM  
Gimme back that filet o fish was stuck in my head much longer than this. I still expect to hear it if a cell phone buzzes.
 
2013-03-13 08:43:41 AM

Just think of what must go into a fish mcbite.

The instant it comes on, the station changes.

First thing I thought of when reading the headline.

I find commercials kindof interesting now that I am no longer exposed to them. Never thought that could happen.

Site's blocked at work...could someone please post the gist?

I can't believe a). someone actually came up with that.  b)someone actually thought it was a good idea.  c) someone actually approved the jingle for air

Are we seeing the early stages of the death of creativity?

early stages?  in case you do happen to be the last one in the room, kill the lights, would ya?

Optimus Primate: I find commercials kindof interesting now that I am no longer exposed to them. Never thought that could happen.


I had the same thing happen when I cut cable for a few years.  I would end up watching TV at a friends house and I would enjoy/laugh at all the commercials since I was seeing them for the first time and not forty times over.

also, am I a bad person for trying to find the shark-mouth app they use to sing the song in the commercial?  Has anyone been able to find it (assuming it exists)?

The jingle is not that good. Maybe it resonates more with the Bieber crowd..
/you know, YOU
 
2013-03-13 06:41:26 PM  
Haven't scene the add and even though I love to hate on McD, but I can't this time.

I tried the Fish McBites when my wife ordered some. Seriously, they weren't bad at all. Tasted like a segment of fish fillet. No processing at all. It was really strange.

ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: What are these commercials you speak of?


As a non-television consumer, I laugh at their collective vexation. I also have yet to hear or see what a "Harlem Shake" might be.

I think that's more of an internet thing, though.
