Life Imitating Al

Postby Bruce the Duck » Sat Jul 26, 2003 6:56 am

There's a jewelry store here in Michigan called "Diamond Jim's"

There's a restaurant called "Twine Ball Inn" which sells postcards that say "Greetings from the Twineball, Wish You Were Here."

Since the release of Frank's 2000" TV, television sets have been getting larger and larger and stores now actually sell mini movie screens



There are many other examples out there of things in the world which either intentionally or not imitate something from Al's music. what other examples can you think of?

Well, yeah, but Al wrote Couch Potato about how people are obsessed with television. What I'm talking about is things that have happened after a similar event in an Al song. That sentence didn't make much sense, but you know what I'm talking about. I hope.


Wibble!

Well, Al did say he wrote GIF before France started taking heat from the American public... that's one example.

Maybe more people have become germaphobic after the song 'Germs.'

I'm trying my best here!

Why does this always happen to me? :yell:

The link worked last night when I tested it before posting. Anyhoo, it's the site for a company that installs mobile satellite TV in cars.
