It's Now a Part of The Pop Lexicon

At least for the next couple of weeks, which is how pop-culture works these days. It's Toyota's much-maligned "Saved By Zero" commercial set to a re-dubbed GI Joe cartoon. Or maybe that's a re-dubbed GI Joe cartoon set to a "Saved by Zero" commercial. Whatever. Enjoy the random.



Oddly, Universal Music Group refuses to allow embedding of the original video from 80s band The Fixx. You'd think a record label would take any press and exposure it could get in this market. I'm sure The Fixx are enjoying their renewed notoriousness notoriety infamy fame.

  • Toyota answers a resounding YES to the question what every brand manager secretly wonders - Do you really have to annoy people into becoming a customer?

  • In the last two days I have drawn the ire of Universal's copyright police with two most obscure pieces of music. Two, not one, two videos of my kids on youtube were disabled due to Universal claiming copyright infringement.

    Same thing I was thinking. The 242 views my sons video had was more airplay then the band has had since 1995. Oh well.
