    “Shilling for Burger King. But dressed like a Burger Queen.” is top notch work. I’ll be interested to see who can top that.

    The John Hartford reference above got me thinking lyrically. Here’s some appropriate Glenn Campbell:

    But I’m gonna be where the lights are shinin’ on me

    Funny that you mention this spot. I’ve been meaning to put up an entry in my blog about it.

    “It’s good to know that members of The Village People can still get work.”
    P.S. The latest version of this commercial cut the line about ‘a nice caboose'” What-up with that?
