I need cash now!

Even Jean Luc Picard struggles with money
People often laugh about the "in-the-brain-song-worms" that simply will not go away.  It doesn't matter what song it is or where it originated. It wanders and sings its way to a form of insanity.

DisneyLand?  It's a Small World attaches to some cortex, popping up now and then.

Barney?  That is a vicious one, having been a frequent babysitter for gr-daughters.  I love you, you love me...just shoot the purple dinosaur already.

Now I wrestle with a commercial series: J.G. Wentworth.  Innocuous?  Maybe. But then again it won't leave, it simply will not go away.

Talent blooms  

Another gem:

Ridden a bus lately?

Yet, another:
Upbeat, balancing in windows

I would love to discuss this with him.

How long can I put these commercials up for your viewing? I looked through YouTube and found over 20 more commercials, and that is a conservative estimate.  Thomas the Train?  Muppets? Bubble Guppies (child cartoons)?  An Octoberfest? On the mound of a baseball game? Boy Bands? Seriously injured and in a hospital bed? Every age and interest group gets their chance of cashing out on long term settlements.

As this sweetie tells you:

Sweet baby

Let's all sing along together!  I have a structured settlement, but I need.....

  1. That's a lot of commercials.
    No kids, so Barney never got stuck in my head, but one listen is all it takes for the Small World to implant itself forever.

  2. I refuse to turn on the volume. I'm still stuck with one from the airport: Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

    2. "Baby, it's cold outside," have you heard the Glee version? I like that one.

    3. Glee had so much talent. I bet they were awesome. No, Dean Martin was the voice.

  3. The song that never ends gets up there rather easy. I've seen many of the commercials, sadly. It can sure get stuck.

    1. Hopefully, this post has purged it from my brain.

  4. It's that car commercial, VW I think, "One thing that you will discover when you're close to one another is everybody needs some elbow room." I can't get rid of that thing.

  6. A Small World is the worst offender! But I hate, hate, hate how ads can take songs I loved growing up and use them to advertise their rubbish. They beat them to death until I can't stand those songs anymore. What gives them the right to ruin my memories? One solution is to avoid TV with ads. We're becoming more and more addicted to Netflix and such....

    1. We have gotten hooked up into Netflix and it feels so nice to see a show without interruptions. Doesn't allow for bathroom breaks.

  7. I refuse to listen. I really, really don't want any more ear worms. And they are so often truly dreadful songs. We all live in a yellow submarine has got stuck in my head more than once.

    1. That would be really irritating. If only it were a good Beatle song it would be much easier.

  8. I dislike those types of advertisements and wish they weren't allowed. They suck in people who need cash, but really can't afford to be paying back yet another loan.

    1. These commercials come on in the daytime mostly. Makes me wonder if who the target audience is. Lots of possibilities.

  10. Hey Susan,

    Those video ads are almost as annoying as the similar ones we get here. It seems these days that TV shows get in the way of commercials.

    I've now got that Meow Mix song spinning around in my head. A singing cat, indeed!

    1. My gr-daughters are now 13 and 11.5, and have a vague memory of our marching around the living room singing with Barney. For me, the memory is razor sharp. Some day you can get even.

  14. This reminds me of when my son was probably 4 or 5 and he loved jingles. Had most of the TV ones aimed at him memorized and could belt them out. One Sunday, he asked if he could sing in front of the church (people). What did he want to sing? The Kmart song (commercial) from 1980. I didn't let him, but now wished I had.
