09:04 pm - the death of irony
They are NOT using Parliament Funkadelic to sell MINIVANS.

Oh my god.

Honda.

No.

I think something inside me just died.

Your threshold is higher than mine; the use of Cameo to sell Cherry Coke did me in.

(Sanity check: this is a guy who wears a RED LEATHER CODPIECE and you want to sell a CHERRY FLAVORED DRINK using his music?)

Now that just makes me think of something like Prince's New Power Generation Energy Drink!

Available in three delicious flavors: Raspberry Beret, Under A Cherry Cola, and Purple Rain Punch! (Limited-edition 'Starfish & Coffee' available November 19.)

That one physically hurt me. As did Honda's use of The GO! Team to advertive Civics.

And I quote the immortal words of Socrates when he said, "...I drank what?"

Good heavens.
So put a glide in your stride and a dip in your hip,
and come on down to the Astro-Van.

It really doesn't have the same ring, does it? Free your mind and your van will follow.

I can empathize - I feel the same way when Beethoven's 9th is used to sell milk on TV.

It's the official EU anthem. Maybe the milk is from the EU surplus milk lake?

Irony died when Mercedes used Janis Joplin to try to sell their cars.

This is just kicking the stinky corpse.

Irony was giving a serious death rattle when Wrangler used "Fortunate Son" to sell its Super Patriot Pants, then. Mercedes just dealt the final blow.
