Stop the Madness

All around the world ... It's gonna be a better day.

Now who sang that song again? Oasis? Oh wait, that would be the song from the SBC commercial they've been playing every hour during March Madness on CBS. And I can't get it out of my head.

Not that I think it's the most annoying commercial of the tourney. No, that would be the Applebee's "revamped" theme from Gilligan's Island for their shrimp. Or at least that's what I gather from the lyrics:

Just sit right back and grab some tail...

Coming in a close second is the ad for Papa John's new "The Meats" pizza, using the Go-Go's "We Got the Beat." As in, We got the meats, we got the meats, we got the meats, yeaahhhhh, we got it!

As Andrew Dice Clay might say, "Yeah, I got the meat."

Finally, there's the Cingular ad with the Asian-Caucasian duo, the former with an up-to-date phone giving him scores, who's going pro, and who's not. The other is hapless but likeable. The question is, Why are they even friends? The Cingular guy might be hi-tech, but he is clearly more obnoxious. He's got the place wired and knows he's better than you. I hate those guys.

I can top that. Kraft has a new cheese product called Crumbles. It is essentially scrap pieces of cheese that they stick in a bag and use as salad toppers or you put it in chili. Anyway, in their commericials they use the song, "Unbelievable" by EMF; however, they changed the line to replaced with a more crumble-centric chorus declaring "It's crumb-believable." It truly is unbelievable.
