Fishday the 13th [flashback]

by Sankinator on February 24, 2012

Quirky little things that make me laugh, generally drive other people crazy. Let’s take the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish commercial for example, I love this commercial. The music bed is catchy as hell, the lyrics are simple yet funny.

“Give me back that filet-o-fish, give me that fish… Give back that filet-o-fish, give me that fish… what if it were you hanging up on this wall, if it were you in that sandwich you wouldn’t be laughing at alllllllll.”

franklin the Fish belts out this catchy tune as the dark haired chubby fellow is grooving and bopping to the tune and munching on a filet-o-fish. Another fellow walks in the garage, who I assume is his neighbor returning a drill he must have borrowed from Chubby.

The drill looks new and probably hangs on the wall next to Franklin as an ornament, I’m guessing never before touched by Chubby. I also want to know who the heck sits in their garage eating a filet-o-fish sandwich anyway?

Chubby continues to munch away and be-bop while his friend looks at him as if he were nuts. That has me thinking about the friend returning the drill. Does he hear he music too, or is it only Chubby’s illusion and the friend finds it unsettling that Chubby is bouncing and grinning while he eats his sandwich?

Chubby raises his eyebrows at his friend as if to say, “Why aren’t you eating a Filet-O-Fish and grooving along with me?” Or is Chubby simply having an LSD flashback in his garage? The more I think about it, the more disturbing this commercial becomes for me.

Anyway, I have to admit, I’ve seen it a hundred times or more. I play it on the computer, I’ve linked it to my Faceboob and I’ll admit, I’ve re-wound it on Tivo so I could watch it again and again. I’m addicted to Franklin the Fish.

I’ll make one more confession and I’m going out on a limb here, but this commercial seems to drive my wife nuts, so it makes it all that much more attractive to me. I even began to sing it to her in her sleep. I wonder how long it will take for her to uncontrollably crave a McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish Sandwich.
