It’s no secret that I actually *like* commercials, because I’ve written about that before. It’s also no secret that I might very well be, the last person, ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET, who STILL watches television in Real Time. Which means, I watch a lot of commercials.
And quite frankly, I’ve never been so happy to see one commercial in particular.
The fictional band that lip-synched ditties for Experian’s FreeCreditReport.com returns in new ads for FreeCreditScore.com.
The public demanded it, the company said.
And if that’s not funny enough, Mick Jagger recently declared his favorite musicians to be “the FreeCreditReport.com band” during his monologue on “Saturday Night Live.”
The original three members were replaced in 2010 by musicians who actually toured to play the jingles live, but the outcry to bring back the first outfit was intense enough to warrant the faux band’s return, according to Experian spokesman Ken Chaplin. The Canadian originals, led by Eric Violette, get their encore run in a campaign on national cable which began on June 18.
