The Mesothelioma Ad Set to a Familiar Tune

"Financial compensation" never sounded so good. The latest project from There I Ruined It takes the monologue from that ad we've all seen again and again and sets it to the tune of "Galop Infernal" by Jacques Offenbach. We know it as the Can-Can song. It's not so much the quality of the work (which is pretty good), but the very idea of pairing such random things that takes you by surprise. You have to wonder how that concept even entered his brain. -via reddit

Considering the undying pervasiveness of this commercial I know exactly how the concept entered his brain. The only problem is he didn't ruin it; he made it better.

There are other oddities in music -- for example, you can sing 'Clementine', 'The Halls of Montezuma', and 'Deutschland Uber Alles' to each other's melodies. You can also do it with 'Amazing Grace', the theme from 'Gilligan's Island', 'House of the Rising Sun', and 'O Little Town of Bethlehem'.
