1. I think there's a website dedicated to those!
I'll have to check. Every last one of those commercials cracked me up. Do you know if that's Richard Marx in the background? It sounds like him.

:D

2. LOL! That would be funny if it was. I never really listened.
My fave one is an old one that was about toupees. It said something like "couldn't look more phony if it had a chin strap" :rofl: Of course that was when it was still "Real American Heroes". I guess after 9/11 they changed it.

18. Here is the story
http://www.usatoday.com/money/advertising/adtrack/2004-...


"NEW YORK Ad music can mean different things to different people. For singer David Bickler it has meant a career.

Sure, the onetime lead singer for early 1980s rock band Survivor scored a 1982 Grammy for the Rocky III theme Eye of the Tiger."

But before Bickler, 50, was a rocker, he was a pitchman. He got his ad start in 1973, singing in a Kentucky Fried Chicken "Finger Lickin' Good" ad.

Bickler now spends his time belting out songs for Bud Light's (BUD) "Real Mean of Genius" campaign. Since 2001 he's sung on more than 60 of the ads, which were first produced for radio. (Related story: Survivor singer belts it out for Bud Light)"

14. I liked it better when it was "Real American Heroes"
It was a lot funnier, then 9-11 happened and Budweiser thought it best not to "mock" "American Heroes". Spineless corporatist bastards!

16. One of my faves!!
MR. REALLY BAD TOUPEE WEARER

Bud Light Presents: Real American Heroes
(real american heroes)
Today we salute you, mr. really bad toupee wearer
(mr. really bad toupee wearer)
More than any neon sign or exploding scoreboard ever could, your chrome dome cover says "hey guys, look at me"
(what could you be thinking)
You think it looks natural, but it couldn't look phonier if it had a chin strap
(couldn't fool a blind man)
Made of space-age fibers, it can repel anything: rain, wind, snow, and especially young women
(i don't think so)
So crack open an ice cold bud light mr. stud in a rug, then crack open another for that thing in your head
(i don't think it's on straight)

So that we may wave them annoyingly in the faces of our rivals
