Okay, when you insult Take on Me, you cross the line. This is by far one of my favorite songs, and I am sorry, but if you don’t think that it is one of the greatest songs ever (or even argue that it is not music), you have no taste in music. It is a necessity on a list of top songs. For me, it would be number 7.
My buddy, who I shall refer to as Bruce for the sake of anonymity, and I were skateboarding at an indoor skatepark, and the stereo system started blasting 80s and 90s jams, and this classic hit was the first on the playlist.
I screamed, “YES THIS IS BOMB!” and Bruce said, “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! THIS ISN’T MUSIC!”
..Oh Bruce, your musical horizons must be broadened.
Of course, none can argue that this music video is fantastic.
Okay, quite honestly, this is one of the greatest commercials I’ve ever seen. Potentially, if the company went all out and expanded on these commercials, it could run alongside those Old Spice commercials with Isaiah Mustafa and Terry Crews.
The commercial pokes fun at Gillette and Schick and all those other brand name razor companies. I don’t have much facial hair, so I don’t particularly pay attention to the prices of these products. But I know they can be pretty expensive, am I right?
This commercial just tells the truth, and is the funniest commercial I’ve seen for a while.
