JINGLE ALL THE WAY

Any day now, CNN, MSNBC, FOX News, are all going to be talking about the new jingle for Mike'd Up, Francesa on the Fan, whatever the show is called.
One thing i quickly learned during Mike's brief discussion with a caller about the progress on the new jingle is that the "jingle companies do not work in August." Did someone in the jingle industry die in August and that is why all jingle companies take the month off? Can the jingle industry really be that successful that they can afford to not work an entire month? When you are working all year making up jingles for Charmin, 1800 Matress and others, does it just fry your brain to the level of a guy with a high end crank addiction that you just need to check out, go to Bali for a month and just get all jingles out of your brain? If you know more about this please tell me.

A little research on that magical invention called Google uncovered that a company called JAM Creative Productions created the original jingle and according to Mike they are hard at work, after their August hiatus creating a new jingle. BUT there is competition... From an average Joe like you and I, who has created a jingle that's got Mike humming it's tune. Mikey likes it and well this jingle just might make the show.

Congrats Average Joe. We are proud of you. We hope you win because if you do, it will be a win for all of us that work in August and for every caller who suggested something to Mike and simply was waved away.

Here's what Mike had to say about the state of the jingle:

"There’s not a contest. What happened was the jingle companies didn’t work in August (hmm, sound familiar?), so they are now producing the new stuff for the show. Now since then, somebody sent in some new stuff, who was actually a, he was a professional musician and he sent in some stuff which was not asked for and it turned out that they played it for me and it was really good. And so we called the guy up and we said “we need you to change the lyrics a little here and change the lyrics a little here” and he said “I’ll gladly go in the studio and get it back to you within a couple of days.” Well we haven’t gotten it back yet but the guy sent over some really interesting, interesting stuff. And if somebody does send us something that’s good, we’ll acknowledge it and we may even use it and we would pay you for it. I mean, so we’re still looking. But not stuff that you’re gonna do in your garage though. It’s got to be professional stuff.”

this guy has more excuses than john mccain and his campaign managers.

It is 1-800 Mattres, not 1800 Matress...Leave the last "s" off for savings.
And yea, those guys make bank. The drummer from The Police does jingles now. Very lucrative business

Yea i was just gonna say who the hell is Sean Young?

KBilly said...

In January 2008, Sean Young checked herself into rehab for alcohol abuse the day after an outburst at the Directors Guild of America awards in Los Angeles. Young was removed from the awards ceremony after repeatedly heckling director Julian Schnabel, who was on stage giving his remarks regarding his Best Director nomination for his work on the film, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.[9][10][11]

In 1988, Sean Young appeared in The Boost with James Woods. Woods later sued her for harassing both him and his then-fiancée, alleging that Young left a disfigured doll on his doorstep in addition to other disruptive behavior.

I don't care about the Jets Linda...I just want to...Kiss you.

KBilly said...

Jesus, I never noticed, but Linda Cohen sounds like Lisa Lampinelli.

Linder Cohn is a great person and a Ranger fan so be careful your tone.

KBilly said...

This business is a hard road if you look like Linda Cohen. If you look like Erin Andrews, it is smooth sailing.

I can't believe Linda Cohn busted out her New York accent so she could sell a couple of her books. What a sell out.

KBilly said...

ESPN sexual harrassment. Does Mike mean Salisbury taking a phone pic of his johnson and sending it to the whole office, or Harold Reynolds groping female interns???

KBilly said...

"Dis Jewish Girl from Lon Giland" loves Miracle on 34thth street. Were tawkin late 70s, early 80s.

KBilly said...

My Gawd, She is annoying. Know what I'm Tawkin about?

KBilly said...

You don't "tawk" about anything in a book. You write about it, you [expletive deleted]!

KBilly said...

"when you read this book Mike..."
Linda, Mike hasn't even read Dog's books yet. He ain't reading yours honey.

KBilly said...

There are Linda Cohen fans? Elway has a celebrity golf tourny and REO Speedwagon is invited? Ahhhhhh!

KBilly said...

Three segments with Linda Cohen...Where's Jon Hayman when you need him???

wtsherman said...

My cousin is a cameraman at ESPN and he said that Linda Cohn, after having kids (and maybe getting divorced) really "spruced" herself up "surgically" and, while no E. Andrews, has made the workplace a little more appealing when she's on set.

I was dubious, but he was adamant about this. "In person," he kept saying.

KBilly said...

Wow, what a segue from the Mets to the Jets...

KBilly said...

A player hit on Linda Cohen???
I call B.S.
Who would ever hit on human Barbaro?

KBilly said...

wtsherman, you can put an annoying Lawn Giland accent on a pig, but it is still a pig.

KBilly said...

Mike wants to bang Erin Andrews and it frustrates him that he has absolutely no chance.
Mike think's there's a couple 16 year old girls listening to his show??? Wha Wha What?

KBilly said...
