Funtime Tune Whistle Time

Celebs and Media, Toronto

Rollercoaster from Major Maker. They made 1/4 of the song for a candy commercial and found they had a hit.

What I like about this cheesey cheap video is that it really reminds me of Martha and the Muffins: a band on the rise, unabashedly in love with Toronto.

Bet you thought I was going to post Echo Beach, eh?

    Rollercoaster? Nope, it was used for a Maynard’s candy commercial that totally riffed on (ripped off?) a Kylie Minogue video (come into my world).

    Nevermind. I was getting the Kingbees and the Kings mixed together. They were both charting at the same time.

    I guess you could say it was “My Mistake!”

    I haven’t been so impressed by Canadian music performed on a boat since “My Heart Will Go On”. (Shame about Mary Ann’s five-o’clock shadow tho…)

    “…unabashedly in love with Toronto.”

    The original Red Rocket, young dudes in makeup and Sandy Horne, there’s a little bit of everything for everyone in this…

    I love that tune, it’s so happy!
    It reminds of of The Whistel Song that was similar in happiness…
    Plus that whistler is sort of hot… even with the pedal pushers
