That Damn John Mellencamp Ad

Yes, I get it. This is your country. You “stand beside the ideals I think are right.” (Who the hell doesn’t?) But I really don’t need to see the commercial roughly 500 times every day. And after I and every other sports fan saw the ad hundreds of times during football on Sunday were in for a rude awakening that night when Mellencamp showed up, live, to sing the song in Detroit before Game 1 of the World Series. Thanks a lot, John- I’ve had the song in my head constantly for the last 48 hours.

I remember the good old days, when the most offensive thing about the ad was that it was using Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and Vietnam footage to sell cars.
