Things That Make You Go Hmmmm

This past weekend in Martha’s Vineyard, there truly was something made Matt and I go, “hmmmm”. On Saturday, walking around the harbor, heading to lunch, we saw all sorts of boat people docked and lounging. However, there was one, older, shirtless guy who had a fake palm tree with Christmas lights wrapped around the trunk,…

Here lizard lizard

Lately I’ve been seeing tv commercials for an AutoTrader.com featuring Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult. You know, the ones where “the giant guy is looking at the cars?” as Jamie said to me over an IM to me this morning. I was having a hard time remembering which of the plethora of auto sites (Carfax,…

Weottababyeetsaboy

Congratulations to our friends Aric and Christen on the birth of their daughter, Hazel Rose! Matt broke the news to me yesterday via IM, saying, “Aric and Christen ottababy eetsaboy” then followed up with, “Actually it’s a girl”.  This was in reference to the Geico commercial from a few years ago. The following version is the revised…

Kiss my sassafras

Don’t ask me how or why, but Matt and I got into an indepth discussion via IM today about sassafras, and Aerosmith’s usage of the word.  The one that everyone knows is from Love in an Elevator (and does anyone else find it odd that Steven Tyler wants you to kiss his deciduous tree?), but…

Bruce Willis is a total wine-er

Imagine it’s 1986, and Bruce Willis walks out onto the porch singing into a Seagram’s bottle….”Seagram’s…. golden wine coooler…. It’s wet and it’s dry!”. He sings next to the guitar guy, stops by to visit finger-snapping guy and the harmonica guy, and does some sort of fancy twirl next to the other guitar guy so…

We Like Quiznos, Coz They are Good To Us

I’m going to Quizno’s tonight for dinner, and am quite excited about it. I was reminded of their nutty commercials from a couple years back with those crazy spongemonkey guys. We songspoke it quite a bit at the time, and the tune itself is kinda speaking in song, so it fits under the songspeak banner,…

Vince McMahon Gets Rickrolled on RAW

Last night was the first night of Million Dollar Mania on Monday Night RAW . Vince McMahon is basically giving away $1,000,000 every week on RAW until he feels like stopping. Fans register on wwe.com, and are given a password at the beginning of the show. Vince then calls people thoughout the 2 hour broadcast,…

Head On! Apply directly to the forehead

Head On tv commercials are pretty annoying, and the makers of Head On, Miralus Healthcare, apparently knew this when they superimposed a gravel-voiced guy saying, “I can’t stand your commercials but your product is amazing.” I just had to post this, since I made a comment on Jamie’s Chips Ahoy post and it reminded me….

They’re crumbelievable

Matt and I were just discussing songspeak in commmercials and commercial jingles, and I was reminded of this gem from last year. As if Unbelievable by EMF wasn’t a horrible enough song already, Kraft Cheese had to go and do this to it. There’s a bonus pop reference at the beginning, as well. I wonder…

M-m-m-m-m-m-m-my Mohegan!

As if the previous one wasn’t bad enough, Mohegan Sun has bastardized yet another decent song in one of their commercials. This time it’s My Sharona by The Knack. I think the worst part is that when the chicks start singing about shopping until they drop, the one on the far left looks like a…
