I bet you could have convinced Olivia Newton-John to show up for very little cash, Nissan

Here's a Nissan Commercial using part of the song track from a 1978 musical set in the  1950s to pitch the 2013 versions of crappy Japanese cars.  I'm guessing it's supposed to be cute, and not cloying, stupid, annoying and really, really bad.  It fails.

I'm sure I could find more to snark about with this little nugget of nothing, but bad traffic meant that it took me almost 11 hours to drive 540 miles from Vermont to Maryland today, and I'm pretty out of it.  So that's all I've got.  I'm sure I'll make it up with a long-winded rant later in the week.


  1. I should they could have. She's in danger of becoming the sort of ex-celebrity that really creeps me out. Y'see, every so often I'll be reading the news and they'll say that some person died. The reason that that person creeps me out is that I thought that the chump died years ago. Weird, huh?

  2. And to think, her much-less-talented costar in that film went on to have an amazingly successful Hollywood career. You know, the guy who could not actually sing OR dance.

    1. Or, for that matter, be anything other than Vinnie "I'm so CONFUSED!!!" Barbarino.
