That Prius one always gets me.

When you're drivin' in a Chevy and you feel some thin' heavy- diarrhea!

That will be $50 Chevy.

I'll take a catchy product-related song over the stupid white hashtag lady from Honda.

I'd rather them create a brand new song then use a wildly inappropriate historical song to hawk their wares.

Some of those didn't bother me. Iggy Pop probably put every dime he ever got from 'Lust for Life' up his arm back in the day, so a bonus payday on it doesn't seem too much to ask.

Four and twenty virgins come down from Inverness
When the ball was over there were four and twenty less
Singing a balls to your partner
Yer ass against the wall
If you cannot get laid in a Ford pickup
You cannot get laid at all

My dad was in on the deal, and said the guy was a consummate professional at every appearance he ever did for KWhopper. Did like to throw 'em back, but always after and appropriately.

I like the Jeremy Clarkson pronounciation, "Pry Us."
Yes, it's incredibly annoying.

There's some fool on the radio who's singing for his life to inform me that Kingsford charcoal is 9.99

Chris Brown's "Forever" started out as a jingle for Wrigley's Doublemint Gum, before being expanded and released as a single in its own right. When asked about the commercial and the potential of being seen as a sellout, Chris - as usual - expressed zero remorse for his actions.

2013-07-24 10:34:33 PM  
they're already on spotify.

paraphrased heavily...

La la la it's a beautiful summer day yeah yeah
Time to do some wonderful grilling yeah yeah
With charcoal for only 9.99 at Lowes

could probably fool someone listening to that genre of music until the end

Between Pandora and XM, never have heard any of them.
Amazon and Netflix no commercials there
You tube is about the only place where I still have to ignore them.
Now if something could be done to rid the blight that is the electronic billboard

You're becoming inured to the typical manipulations of those who want to sell you their wretched things. Escalation must occur, otherwise how can they sustain a share price that only goes up?

Alright, I've heard enough shiatty jingles on local radio... I don't need MORE of them.

Well, I write a lotta songs, but I'm thinkin' you gotta pay me a real lotta money to write a song about health insurance. Oreos, maybe, you know, anything delicious probably, but geez, write a song about Obamacare? Yeah that'd be worse than Salieri killing Mozart - as a songwriter you might just have to die after something like that. And then you'd go to Hell and you'd be the guy who wrote the song about Obamacare and have to listen to it for eternity with pitchforks up your ass.
