Frank Portman is a corporate sell out! You and Wet Pets are just laughing all the way to the bank, aren't ya?

In the jargon of low-budget television commercial production, this would be called a 'spot.'
"Jim, did you finish editing the Wet Pets spot?"

If I were watching this commercial with my pals Doug Simpson and Marcia Brady, we might say that it is far out and groovy.
"Gee, Doug Simpson, isn't this a groovy commercial?"

Meanwhile, back in the Banana Pad, Bingo, Snorky, Fleegle and Drooper would take it a step further and bust into a spontaneous version of This Spot (is Groovy).

It was high time for another Banana Splits reference on this blog.

i still don't think viral marketing is the answer to the question, "what is punk?"

i did some investigative reporting to get to the bottom of this and you will never believe who is at the top - BEN WEASEL! yup, he owns both Wet Pets and Dr. Frank's House of Subversive Advertising. Basically, all of the proceeds from these ventures gets pumped into a fund which will one day pay for production costs of "PUNK IS A FOUR LETTER WORD: THE MOVIE" starring Val Kilmer as Ben Weasel and Brad Pitt as Kurt Cobain during the In Utero tour.
