I think I got over bands selling their songs to mega corps a few years ago. Good for the Brazilian musicians for putting their kids through college with ad money.

What's more unsettling is the message this commercial sends: "I'm a loser, but who gives a shit because this Happy Meal will make me forget about being a loser for the next hour or so because McDonald's controls my brain. Yay."

It seems to be THE mantra that generation has been fed as of late. Those kids are fucked.

hell, i was happy just to have a faygo after my little league and soccer teams inevitably lost. same as it ever was.
but actually, though mcd's is hardly the best choice to illustrate it, the idea that even though something that seems so fucking important totally failed you still have something to look forward to is an ok one. i guess. though their particular message might be more "you gave it your all and that wasn't enough, but at least you can still go buy something."

everybody's rapping like it's a commercial
acting like life is a big commercial

i think that the "message" that this commercial sends is...

I did my best
But I guess my best wasn't good enough
'Cause here we are back where we were before
Seems nothing ever changes
We're back to being strangers
Wondering if we oughta stay
Or head on out the door

Just once can't we figure out what we keep doing wrong
Why we never last for very long
What are we doing wrong
Just once can't we find a way to finally make it right
Make the magic last for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break through it

I gave my all
But I think my all may have been too much
'Cause Lord knows we're not getting anywhere
Seems we're always blowing whatever we got going
And seems at times with all we've got
We haven't got a prayer
Just once can't we figure out what we keep doing wrong
Why the goodtimes never last for very long
Seems we're always blowing
Whatever we got going

Just once can't we find a way to finally make it right
Make the magic last for more than just one night
If we could just get to it
I know we could break through it

Just once I want to understand
Why it always come back to good-bye
Why can't we get ourselves in hand
And admit to one another
That we're no good with out the other
Take the best and make it better
Find a way to stay together

Just once can't we find a way to finally make it right
Make the magic last for more than just one night
I know we can break through it
If we could just get to it

Just once
If we could get to it

Just Once...

I'm really happy to be hearing more Brasilian music in shows and commercials!

What's more unsettling is the message this commercial sends: " Better brush up on your Spanish, or your orders' gonna be fucked up when you go through the
Drive-Thru"
