Bad Commercial Songs That Are Written Too Well

I can't really describe why but my favorite series of commercials right now are the ones from FreeCreditReport.com. I think that I finally noticed it from the latest one. So, for my own collection purposes, I'm posting them in order of recent to first.


















I guess they are doing well enough to have spoofs that are popping up on YouTube.

They are good commercials. Also, it helps highlight things people should really be aware of, but aren't.

Lora - They seem to be running alright over here at this time. Hmmm. At first when you said that, I was thinking that the company didn't want the promotion via YouTube.

Ken - I really think that 'home economics' classes really deal with economics and how it affects the home with an understanding of credit issues. Amazing how little some people know before applying for their first card.

The pirate restaurant is my favorite of these. Not brilliant ... but pretty funny.

Martin: I thought I'd let you know that I've just posted the first in my "Underappreciated '80s" series, as I hinted at late last year. The first one is on ... Andy Taylor's Thunder album. Let me know what you think!

I love those ads. Where are the spoofs? I searched YouTube to no avail.

Tx. :)

Oops... actually it's the spoof for the FreeCreditReport.com commercial about knowing what your number is. They can be found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eLJO2hOTSE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItMi3s30aqM

Never really liked those commercials. The new ones... gotta like the songs.
