McDonald's Filet-O-Fish commercial: Get out of my head!

Once in a blue moon, I’ll turn on the television and find myself watching a commercial that’s so catchy (Old Navy Performance Fleece; the "Wasssup" Budweiser guys) I simply cannot rid it from my mind for days on end. Though it had been a while since I’ve seen a spot catchy enough to command my attention, McDonald’s has officially done the trick with their newest Filet-O-Fish commercial. As a fan of everything ’90s, I was already the perfect demographic for an ad starring Big Mouth Billy Bass. But as soon as he opens his mouth and begins singing, I find myself transfixed, unable to look away, and pretty much at risk to follow any instruction that freakin’ fish gives me. Eat at McDonald’s every day? Convert to Kabbalah? Take a special trip to visit the Prime Minister of Malaysia? You got it, filet-o-fish, because I cannot take my eyes off you!

Anyone else obsessed with McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish ad?

    I, too, have gotten this stuck in my head. And because I can’t remember all the words, my husband has it stuck in his head too. We just start singing it when there’s a lull in conversation…no matter where we are – the car, at friends…Anywhere.

    I was the same way when I first saw this commercial. it just stuck me as very odd. but the imagery stuck in my head. I didn,t go out and get the sandwich or anything but I wanted to see the commercial again.

    My cat loves it. Whenever she hears that odd voice singing “Give me back my Filet o’ Fish, give me that fish …” she runs over and sits right in front of the TV, transfixed!

    Glad to know I am not the only one affected by this commerical.

    haha, I totally was thinking the same thing. I can’t get that damn song out of my head!

  • What the….. ???

    I find it astounding that a writer is being paid to come up with message board topics as LAME as this. Jeez, you people aren’t even trying anymore. I would find a blog on the latest Bakugan episode more intellectually stimulating and entertaining than this.

    Completely obsessed. Have made it my ring tone and taught the song to my four year old nephew to sing with me.

    I can’t believe it. I thought I was the only one! I’ve been annoying my co-workers all week: “Gimme back that Filet-O-Fish, gimme that fish…” LOL I frakking love it!

    My son comes home from school singing the filet-o-fish song – the kids love it!

  • bonnylass

    Yep, it’s got me hooked too. No pun intendedn. I found myself humming that tune on my commute to work this morning.

  • DaisyK

    My husband wants that song as his ring tone – Anyone know where you can get that?

  • Sara

    This song gets stuck in my head, but not in a good way. It drives me crazy and I hate it. And now it’s stuck in my head again. W00t.

  • Suza

    Nooooooooooo! I finally got that song out of my head, and then I see this!!!
    I swear, I woke up the other morning and it was still in my head… Not fun! LOL!
