I dedicate that Nivea Lotion song to you…

product-6635846.jpgSince when do we need to know what song is playing on our lotion commercials?! Have you seen the Nivea commercial that displays the song title and artist? Calm down Nivea – nobody cares. Do you think it was part of the negotiation with the recording artist? They offered her 24 crates of Nivea firming lotion every 24 months and she countered with an MTV style song credit at the beginning of the spot? I can just hear her agent calling her back, “OK, just got off the phone with the Nivea people and they’ve offered 36 crates of firming lotion, some self-tanner and some CVS coupons for their products.” I’m going to stop now because I just realized I’ve written a half page web ad for Nivea. Damn you Nivea Lotion — you’ve tricked me into advertising for you once again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
