There's really no room for anyone else in this Cadillac Commerical anyway
And to think, for all those years I thought that the song "One is the Loneliest Number" by the Three Dog Night was about the desperate sadness that goes along with being alone. I remember listening a bit further and learning that "two can be as sad as one" when the relationship is sterile and devoid of love...or, at least, that's what I thought it meant.
Thanks to the magic of tv commercials, I now know that I've been wrong for forty years, and it turns out that the song was about how awesome it was to be Number One in your own heart, and that the best way to achieve this feeling is to be a status-absorbed douchenozzle with a stereotypical engineering job in a cliche'd all-glass office who drives a Cadillac.
Boy, is my face red. Oh wait, that's not embarressment. More like rage.
Eventually, all of the songs we grew up with will be whored out to big corporations to be used in advertisements. "But that's not something that I'm looking forward to"-- Ringo Starr, Photograph
