Give me back that filet o’ fish

I don’t know if this McDonald’s ad is totally stupid or totally genius.

But I do have to admit: it’s totally, er, catchy.



  1. Give me back that filet ‘o fish is genius. It’s possibly my favorite ad ever for its quirkiness and yet utter relevance to the thing McDonald’s is trying to sell. My husband and I have made plans tonight to go to McDonald’s for the fish. And I’ve never even had it before.

    I’m sure there are people who hate the song, but I think it’s like a really good Frank Zappa tune.

  2. omg. dave can’t get this out of his head either. he sings it with a shrill mix of vigor and resentment; the best part is that he’s about 75% tone deaf, so his version is slightly more painful than the original.

  3. Possibly the most brilliant and funny commercial ever made. This should have been during the Superbowl.
