Wrangler abuses Fortunate Son

Wrangler abuses Fortunate Son published on No Comments on Wrangler abuses Fortunate Son

Remember–this isn’t John Fogerty’s fault. He lost the rights to his songs so bad he once was successfully sued for plagiarizing himself.
Bad Ad Decisions Part 1

Wrangler jeans` new ad campaign features the distinctive opening riff of Creedence Clearwater’s “Fortunate Son,” as well as the opening line “Some folks are born made to wave the flag; Ooh they’re red, white and blue.” Fair enough. Perhaps they missed both John Fogerty’s sarcastic singing and the rest of the lyrics. So you don’t, here they are:

Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
Ooh, they’re red, white and blue,
And when the band plays “Hail to the chief,”
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord.

It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no senator’s son, son.
It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one, no,

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, don’t they help themselves,
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale.

It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no millionaire’s son, no.
It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one, no.

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord,
And when you ask them, “How much should we give?”
Ooh, they only answer more, more, more, yeah,

It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no military son, son.
It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one, one.

It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no fortunate one, no no no,
It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no fortunate son, no no no,

What what what what?   Mmm... so rough...
Why did nobody tell me about this? Why is this happening?
Why does Gore look like Jeff Goldblum as the blue alien from Earth Girls are Easy?

A word of explanation:
This is a pretty normal publicity photo from the opening of Universal Studios` Jurassic Park water ride. You’ve got your Jeff Goldblum, Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello at the front.

What makes this interesting is that the guy next to Joseph Mazzello is Norman Schwartzkopf.

Yes it is. What the hell.

Even Laura Dern is confused.

Nothing fancy. Nothing wild. Just a little oasis of earthly delight in a world of unremitting Ru.
