Getting your song used in a commercial can earn you big bucks—and so you can’t blame Canadian lol-master Jon Lajoie begging advertisers to use his song in their commercials in the music video “Please Use This Song.”

OK, he’s not really serious because how could you be with a title like that, but it brilliantly parodies the bland, insipid music that gets picked up to hawk products all the time.

So come on, there must be a company out there who would have the balls to actually use this in a commercial? Anyone? Thought not.
