Songs in the tv commercials

For awhile now, has been running some clever commercials featuring Eric Violette singing clever songs about how he should have gone to instead of that tool on the stool saying, “I’m THINKING of a number…”. These commercials feature clever songs sung in English, even though Eric Violette is French-Canadian whose primary language is French.

The Car Song: I was shopping for a new car, which one’s me… A cool convertible or an SUV?

The Pirate Song: They say a man should always dress for the job he wants, so why am I dressed up like a pirate in this restaurant?

The Dream Girl Song: I married my dream girl. I married my dream girl. But she didn’t tell me her credit was bad.

  1. Freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee credit report DOT com. Yeah, it’s got a certain elevator/light rock vibe to it. But the way he says “I’m thinking of a number” that just makes me cringe.

  2. For awhile I tried to deny my love for the car lot one. I’m embracing it now. The best bit is the expression on his face at the end of it. I do wonder if it really is that dude singing, though.

  3. I seems to me that the FreeCreditReport car song sounds a little bit like “Behind the Music” by the Vandals (you can check on iTunes). The rhythm is the same, at least.

  4. O.M.G.!! I thought I was crazy because I love these commercials and so do my kids. Guess I’m not the only one. I hope they make another one. Can’t wait. I think the blond guy is pretty cute!!!

  5. I like their commercials, but their credit reports sure aren’t “free”. You have to sign up/enroll in Triple Advantage, which kinda blows.

    “When you order your free report here, you will begin your free trial membership in Triple AdvantageSM Credit Monitoring. If you don’t cancel your membership within the 7-day trial period*, you will be billed $14.95 for each month that you continue your membership.”

  7. The songs suck. I am a record producer and believe me, these guys cant play, cant sing, dont look good, and the songs are very annoying. i hit the MUTE as fast as possible as soon as they come on.

  8. Love the older woman who has appeared in the Pirate one and now is in the Renaissance Faire. In watching these guys “play” the guitar, it does not appear that they are really playing. However, the sponsers want you to remember their name and the songs have done that. The songs are a gold mine for the sponsers in that way.

    You’re a record producer? That’s my first question/ hahahahahahahahahah is my answer.
    2nd question is; You don’t appreciate commercial genius?
    3rd question; These songs are annoying? Look how much the campaign brought to the business. I’d be annoyed all day for that kind of money.
    1st point: Eric Violette, a French Canadian can play guitar as well as sing but lip-syncs the commercials because of his accent.
    So go produce your next million dollar hit.
    4th question: Or should I say try to produce your first million dollar hit?

  10. My kid has these songs down! She walked in here and sang the pirate song and I was on the floor… She went to school yesterday and started singing it for her best friend and she fell over laughing too… Catchy little tune yes and good ad one of the better ads on tv but now my 11 year old will be singing them NONSTOP!!!

  11. Eric Violett is adorable and I hope he goes far in his field of singing, not only for commercials but maybe he will be on his own one day. Keep up the good work, Eric!!!

  13. Of all the props these guys use to produce these tacky commercials, I would love to know who provides the props for these commercials.. They are pretending to play high end Gibson and Fender guitars. I had to sell a 50 year old Gibson I have had since 16 years old to feed my kids and pay rent.. It just makes me sick to see all of these instruments not being respected and actually played. If they spend 100,000 dollars to produce, edit and,more to air these commercials, the least they could so is send me that nice Gold top Paul they guy is standinging in a boat pretending to play.. like it hasn’t been paid for 100 times over.. be happy to supply address

  14. When you need to do online putting on payday loan you’ll be able to very easily complete it in just few minutes. Typically, the lender will lend anywhere from $75 – $1,300 and often times online lenders may even deposit your requested funds right into your checking account ab muscles next day.

  15. If it is him or her’s fault, this may help him or her consider
    his mistakes and shortcomings within the relationship. If your companion will be the individual who is unwilling to
    get counseling, then you will probably must find a way to
    convince them to go along with you. These everything is
    difficult when you might have invested love and trust into the relationship.

  17. 28:1-2 “And it shall come to pass (a prophetic promise from God, which is the ultimate “faith
    receiving”) then it says, “IF”, which is the fulcrum condition so receiving can (or should I say is) conditional on the next part of this equation. Our website is also filled with details regarding treatment and recovery prostate cancer information. We are constantly blasted with advertisements about “anti-cancer” foods and drugs that are supposed to help stave off the wretched giant-killer.
