Are you havin’ a laugh? It’s Chris Martin on Extras

Having recently finished watching Ricky Gervais make a fool of himself in Extras, I was havin’ a laugh recalling the cameo appearance by Chris Martin of Coldplay. Gwenyth’s making drumsticks! It’s especially awesome to see Ricky Gervais doing musical things, since I had heard that he was a former pop musicain himself. Thanks to the…

Someone you know could be havin’ a stroke…act FAST!

There is a public service announcement commercial about strokes that’s been rearing its head often lately from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and no matter how many times we see it, it remains hilarious. The actual commercial, with the dude’s funky voiceover, can be seen here. But in researching this commercial, I found a…

That’s gold, Jerry… GOLD!

One phrase Jamie and I like to use around the Songspeak cubicles is “That’s gold, Jerry… gold!” (Jamie used it in his last post in fact). It’s a reference to the Seinfeld episode entitled, The Fatigues, which features a character named Kenny Bania, the  comedian who likes to make jokes about milk-based products. Known for…

I Always Feel Like, Geico’s Watchin’ Me

Geico’s done it again. They’ve put together yet another clever ad campaign that I get a kick out of. I can’t think of another company/product with so many simultaneous great ad campaigns, but it works for them. There’s the Geico gecko, the “so easy a caveman could do it“, the celebrities-assist-in-telling-an-accident story, and now the…

Are you Ready? Prepare to Lick!

There will soon be a ‘lick-off’ showdown between Eli and Peyton Manning and Venus and Serena Williams. It happens January 18th, 2009, according to DSRL.com, the official site of the Double Stuf Racing League, a cheeky satirical national sports league approach to selling Double Stuf Oreos. This is serious business, though. Haven’t you seen all…

Should I just keep chasing penguins?

One of the more recent ridiculously overplayed songs on mix 93.1 here is Chasing Pavements by Adele. It’s been getting airplay for quite some time, and when it was first being played, I never paid close attention to it and thought she was singing, “Should I give up or should I just keep chasing penguins?”…

We’d better settle this one…

For those of you who live near The Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone, The Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, Kalfus & Nachman, Goodman Acker, Marks & Harrison, or any of the many many law firms who feature Robert Vaughn, William Shatner, Erik Estrada (unsurpassed blue collar market and hispanic appeal!), and even Joe…

Runnin’ with Diamond Dave, the vocal track awesomeness

Happy New Year, people. It’s in the spirit of refection that we here at Songspeak like to remember the good ol’ times, when Van Halen had nutty David Lee Roth as its lead singer. To really hear the awesomeness of Diamond Dave, you should really listen the version of Runnin’ With The Devil with all…
