    A witty protest song about social consumerist conformity hijacked and rewritten to sell telephones. 

    I hope all concerned with this abomination are devoured by crocodiles.

      I’m depressed that this is the only comment about the subversion of the original song’s sentiments. I humbly ask that everyone who reads this, go and look at the story behind the lyrics.

    The lyrics in the advert differ from the released song, unfortunately. Anyone know if the version used in the ad will be released?
