Commercial advertisers and TV networks are all a-twitter over DVR owners skipping their commercials, but if the advertisers made commercials as entertaining as Fruit of the Loom’s music video titled Blue I’d be more inclined to watch them repeatedly. I don’t know about you guys, but I love that silly commercial and I want a full length MP3 of the song they’re singing. The thing is I can’t find the commercial or the song anywhere online. Apparently it’s a parody take on the band Coldplay, which I’ve never heard of because I’m getting old and out of touch with popular music these days.
It seems this isn’t the first music video the FotL guys have done as the company has put up a “fan site” for another one they did using a country song titled You Can’t Over Love Your Underwear which not only has the video, but also a free MP3 version of the song you can download. I’m not as enamored with that song, but I’m holding out hope they’ll do the same thing with Blue in the near future. I don’t know if the latter is newer than the country song or not, but I’m assuming it is. Word has it there’s yet another music video parody with a song titled B Casual.
Perhaps I’m alone in my appreciation for songs about underwear, but more commercials like that would keep me from hitting the fast forward button.
