Here’s something I learned in The Feed on Pig Cross (pronounced pee-gee-plus). Iron City has a new ad campaign for this year’s run to the Super Bowl. First let me show it to you:
I want to give you a peek into my very weird brain by explaining to you what I thought when I saw this ad.
“OMG, that’s a total take on that song Almost paradise/we’re knocking on heaven’s door/almost paradise/how could we ask for more that they used to play on Guiding Light in the 80s whenever Beth and Lujack would have a romantic scene, like the time they were like on that island or whatever, and there was that white horse and they rode it down the beach without a saddle, which, OUCH!, and it was all slow-motiony and stuff and you would sit there watching it with a lump in your throat, a tightness in your chest, and a single tear on your cheek, and then it would cut to commercial for something like AquaNet or the McDLT and you would be all, ‘Beth and Lujack. True love 4-ever.'”
It wasn’t until I read the rest of The Feed that I learned that Bob Dylan has a song called “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” and I realized, man, I am a BAD AMERICAN!
Of course, I didn’t know Faith Hill’s song “Piece of My Heart” was a Janis Joplin tune.
But whatever, we’re totally winning the Super Bowl again this year and Marian Hossa can suck it.
