ARGH. Another one pulled down from Penny-Arcade. Basically the story behind this is Mars Inc's (as in candy company) Austraila division commisioned a song to be made that is basically a veiled Starburst advertisement. The plan? Get this single to go up in the charts, so radio stations will actually play this song, thus Mars Inc gets adverstising without actually paying for an advertising spot.
This song is now sitting on my hard drive, and I think my head is about to explode. It's called "Get your Juices Going" if anybody really wants to find it, but a word to the wise: If you find this kind of commercialism to be offensive to you in any way, listening to this song may want to make you go shoot people.
