I want to hurl a brick through the TV everythime it comes on (all 984 times a day).

Devo must be turning in his grave and if he's not dead yet he will be if he see's this commercial.

Because of that commercial and the psychotic swiffing woman in it I have:

1) Made it my life's mission never to buy a swiffer EVAR.

2) Not accept one as a gift even.

grrrr.

I love the swiffer lady! She's got some crazy dance moves.

I especially like the robotic move at the end of the version with the goth kids.

WOO!

The stupidity of that commercial makes me LOL.

Imagine being the star of that commercial, and having to show that as part of your "filmography" hahaha

Devo (the band) agreed to that commercial and re-recorded the song for it.

P.S. I love my Swiffer.
That's actually Devo singing the song? Oh how the semi-mighty have fallen.

Well, seeing as I have boycotted all Proctor & Gamble products for the past few years, there's not a chance in hell I'm ever going to buy Swiffers, therefore I can feel good about not making their execs believe that their stupid commercials are working.

I guess they figured the E in devo ads some kind of coolness to their campaign.

I had that song stuck in my head all of last weekend. I then started singing it around the house and doing the dance moves like the mom until my girlfriend yelled at me :) Swiffer and Mr. Clean magic eraser have changed my life. Oh and ipod too.

A friend of mine always sings that song when I am on the phone with him - he will just bust into song - it is soooo funny and annoying at the same time cuz it gets stuck in my head for so long

my boyfriend bought me a swiffer a couple of weeks ago.
i think it was cuz he has always secretly wanted one but doesn't have enough uncarpeted floor space at his apartment to warrant one.

i gotta say, her dance moves are pretty hysterical.

Swiffers (the wet jet ones) are freaking amazing.

I rave on about them all the time to anyone who will listen.

Alex, just try one, you will like it!

gawd! what's next? disposable socks? I don't know if the product is worse than the ad campaign, it's close....I'll call it a tie.

For the love of all things good, STOP THE SWIFTING!!

The Japanese have come out with spray-on socks which means you will be able to use your real socks to clean your house instead of supporting those sacrelligious devo destroying cleaning cloths. Yay.

You can always buy the Pledge Grab It! as an alternative...

But I think the commercial is hilarious...especially when the teenagers say "I hope its not genetic"...reminds me of being a teen.
