Don't you just hate it...

TV commercials that bastardise classic records from the past. Don't you just hate them? The latest to be butchered in the name of sales is Huey Piano Smith's Don't You Just Know it. This version with 'updated' words features an overweight pole dancer, a single mum who has no idea who the father is, and a girl who finds out she's married a bearded transvestite. It's promoting a magazine called Love it, which I'm sure I won't.
It's not too bad when classic records are given a wider audience through the use of the original recording, like the KFC soul ads, but what really gets my goat is the ultra crap cover which is an insult to the original.

Haha, I saw that and wondered what on earth it was supposed to be originally. Thanks for clearing that up! :D
