The new Mercury car commercials need to try some variety, the song is really getting annoying, especially considering they only play the same 25 seconds of it. The song is called “nth degree” by Morningwood. But, the best use of it yet is in the commercial where the tall lady with the square chin is with some nerdy guy. The commercial plays out like they work together.

He has is iPod out as they walk out the door and she says, “If we take my Mercury, you can plug that right in.” (As though this is the only car that has this unique feature.)

That’s not the good part. The good part is when he plugs in his iPod and it’s that same song. This song is… gay. I don’t mean that derogatorily. I mean if you are a male who likes wearing fluffy pink things this may be the song for you. This is the song that bouncy, giggling nine-year-old girls listen to while sitting around and screeching about crushes on the “older” eleven-year-old boys.

Not a grown man on the way to a corporate meeting.

It’s one thing for the tall skinny lady with the square chin wandering around telling you to put Mercury on your list with this song in the background. But, come. on. He does seem immature, but nine-year-old girl-immature? Not quite.
