Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.

23.10.13

Heard: the first commercial of the season to feature Christmas background music.

On October 23, before even the Melbourne Cup has been run!

A radio commercial for Mercedes Benz cars, backed by Angels We Have Heard on High, the voiceover urging people to 'secure' a demo model Merc, the faux-upmarket jargon designed to impress the cashed-up bogans who comprise today's Mercedes Benz market. MB could at least have spent some money on an original composition rather than a tune in the public domain.

I'm off to the supermarket to secure a carrot.
