I just saw a commerical for Starbucks double shot expresso in a can. It featured the 80′s group Survivor singing a little ditty about a guy named Glen. To the tune of Eye Of The Tiger

Glen!
Glen Glen Glen!
Glen Glen Glennnnn!

Glen’s the man
Goin’ to work
Got his tie,

Got ambition

He knows one day he just might become
Supervisor….

You really have to see this. They’re dolled up in leather pants and bright silk shirts, playing the song as Glen goes to work.

The years have not been kind to them, but at least they have work.

And, as a side note, if anyone can find the audio to this, I’d love to have it for work….

    Oh yea i saw that, it was so awesome to see Surviver back in action, and also very depressing…

  • Anne

    Interesting. I do know that Survivor’s original singer, Dave Bickler, sings in the Budweiser “Real Men of Genius” ad campaign. Those commericals (e.g., Mr. Really Bad Toupee Wearer) are hilarious, I have to admit.

    I found a link to the video on the Starbuck’s web site. Here’s the words as I hear them.

    Glenn! Glenn, Glenn, Glenn!
    Glenn, Glenn, Glenn!
    Glenn, Glenn, Glenn!

    Glenn’s the man
    Goin’ to work.
    Got his tie, got ambition.
    Middle management is right in his grasp.
    It’s a dream he will never let die.

    Glenn’s the–
    man of the hour, he’s the king of his cube!
    Status com reports have finally met their rival. Burning the–
    candle at both ends on his way to the top,
    He knows one day he just could become…
    Supervisor!

    Roy! Roy, Roy Roy! . . .

    Aaron’s got it mainly right…

    I believe it’s Status Quo Reports.

    This is the most entertaining commercial I’ve seen in a long time.

  • Bob Wazalske

    Aaorn is right but the only part that’s wrong is staus com. It is staus quo. But that commercial is awesome! The best in Commercial history it should win an academy award for shortest film ever!

    Roy! Roy, Roy Roy! . . .

  • captain

    “King of his cube” is the only thing that makes sense.

  • Monika

    well, the link i’ve given is more of a video than it is an audio, but it you just want to be able to hear it at your leisure it’ll do. (besides that, video’s better anyways) the link is: http://www.transbuddha.com/justin/video/funny/StarbucksEyeTiger.htm

    Here is the link to the video from the starbucks website

  • BillMac

    There’s actually 2 versions of this commercial…and both are being played on tv…

    The one you can see at “content.collegehumor.com” one is the first one…at the end…Roy is walking down the hallway…and Survivor follows him…

    And the one at the starbucks.com website is the second one…at the end…Roy gets on the elevator…just a weird factoid…

    And 3rd off…at least here in the New England area…I coulda swore when they first started playing this commercial…Roy was the first guy…and Glen came later…but not sure…

    Just some stuff to ponder…later.
