it's affecting my work...
it's hijacking too many gchat conversations with maxie and SO@24.
i'm randomly bursting into song at any given time.
plus, it's causing me to want fast food everyday.
but i can't help it - GIMMIE BACK THAT FILET O FISH!
that mcdonald's commercial has taken over my life, and i'm not complaining about it. i love this ad!
at first you watch it and you're like what the hell is this crap all about but then you hear it again and again and it becomes brilliant - it's catchy, it's quirky, it does exactly what it's supposed to do...
makes you want to buy a filet o fish.
it also reminded me of this other filet o fish commercial from last year (or maybe the year before), which is just as annoyingly brilliant.
i can't get enough! i want a piece of perfectly square shaped fried fish - like right now.
if you could be so kind, please excuse me while i perfect my "gimmie back my filet o fish, gimmie that fish, ooooooooooooooo" voice while watching the commercial approximately 293 more times.
so a little bit ago i received a testimonial of sorts in my email inbox from a fellow blogger. it was written response to this very blog post and upon reading it (after i stopped laughing) i quickly emailed back asking if i could post the email and share it with you all. thankfully josh obliged - enjoy.
Dear Alexa,This afternoon while walking down the street I was thinking of what I should have for lunch. Pizza? Jimmy Johns? Something I've already purchased that's sitting in my cabinets at home? And there, like a beacon in the middle of the day, on the left side of Clark street, was a McDonalds. And all I could think was "Gimmie back that filet-o-fish! Gimmie that fish!"Even though I'd never had a filet-o-fish in my life, I needed to have one right then and there. So I walked inside, ordered one, and also ordered a cheeseburger as a back-up just in case I hated the filet-o-fish. As if.One bite and I was hooked. I finished off the whole thing and then moved on to my lowly cheeseburger, thinking "why did I get this instead of a second filet-o-fish? Stupid!"I truly am a convert. And I owe it all (as well as my coming obesity) to you.Sincerely battered and served on a steamed bun,Josh
