Maddening "Pizza Hut" single is "not promoting fast food"
Posted: 10:02 Mon 02-06-2003.
reports: Despite a chorus that consists of the words "Pizza Hut", "Kentucky Fried Chicken" and "McDonalds" repeated over and over again, the Fast Food Rockers' Fast Food Song (due in
shops in a couple of weeks) is "not promoting fast food", according to their official site. On the contrary, the "band" are "keen to promote healthy eating", and are merely borrowing the refrain from a traditional children's ditty (just the first chorus though, and they seem to cut away from anyone doing the McDonald's "Golden Arches" actions if you watch the video). Hey, maybe repeating the brands is just a way of having a go at them, as in the Manic Street Preachers' hard-hitting NatWest - Barclays - Midlands - Lloyds. On the other hand, if you'd like to help your kids prepare for their "Would you like fries with that?" future, check out: the Electronic KFC Restaurant Counter (for ages 3-8 years); McDonald's Fun Time[TM] Barbie & Kelly ("McDonald's is even more fun when your big sister works there!"); and - out at the end of this week - a fully working McDonald's McFlurry Maker ("ice and salt not included").

Comment: On Great Charlotte St. in Liverpool city centre, there are three restaurants actually adjacent to one another. You guessed it:
Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut and McDonalds.
It makes me chuckle and whistle the merry ditty every time I walk past.
Maybe I should get out more.

Comment: Don't forget "Milk and Cereal" by G.Love and Special Sauce, which
ingeniously subverted cereal marketing slogans by... uh... retextualising them.
Snap, Crackle, Pop! Go G.Love, stick it to the man.
