This has been making the rounds here in Seattle:

"We Built This Starbucks"

The local alternative paper has the scoop (scroll down to Feb 24):

The Stranger

Suddenly my own corporations attempts at team building events don't seem so lame...

Well, I guess you can't really call it a sellout, considering "sellout" was basically the definition of the band when "Starship" did "We Built This City".

This was so bad I didn't even laugh listening to it. It was more like a feeling of horror. Sheer horror.

I didn't think I would ever hear more awful synth sounds than the ones that farted out of Jefferson Starship. It took one of the most successful companies in the United States to prove me wrong.

You know, stuff like this (re: bad jingles) makes me wonder what goes through the minds of the people composing and/or performing the jingle. Like, are they really pouring their heart and soul into the mic like we always see rock stars doing in videos? Do they high-five each other while listening to a cut of it behind the glass?

I believe they are counting their money.
