If you listen to most of your Blue Jays games on the Fan like I do, you’ve probably heard those Harvey Brooker Weight Loss For Men commercials. We (especially Carin) have more to say about him whenever we actually do audio again, but right now I’d just like to point out that even after however many years its been, I still can’t hear one of those things without thinking about this great bit by Richard Jeni.
And speaking of commercials on Jays radio, has anybody else noticed that they’ve been running ads for Marley’s Mellow Mood relaxation drinks and 5-hour ENERGY back to back? Not sure if it was intentionally laid out that way for chuckles, but chuckle I did. Only thing is that they have them in the wrong order. Energy drinks should go first, then the stuff to bring you down from the energy drinks. Way to get people on an addictive cycle of uppers and downers, by the way. Clearly you mustn’t be concerned children’s advertisers.
And now that I’ve gotten that song stuck in your heads, I’m headed outside to listen to the Jays hopefully not get swept by the Yankees.
