Hey! It’s another edition of, “what the hell were they thinking picking that song for that commercial?” I assume the fact that I live in New York, the home of the upcoming baseball All-Star game, doesn’t mean I get more commercials for the thing than you do, right? Could Fox wring any more juice out of this event? The answer is plain: watch less Fox. Good thing I mostly watch it on my DVR, sans advertising.

Perhaps you too have seen the ad with the “I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life” song. If you know that it’s Lazy Eye by Silversun Pickups, you also know that the line goes, “I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life… but it’s not quite right.” Golly, that wouldn’t be a great tagline for the All-Star game, would it? Here’s an idea! Let’s just cut out that pesky last part of the line and just have the music play on. There we go. My, those marketing people are clever.

When I first heard and adored this song (was it last year? who remembers), I assumed it was a lady singer. But no! I think the bearded guy singer wants you to think that, really. Playing even more on that theme is the video. But seriously, this is a chick. Not the singer, the cute It’s Pat person in the video.

Or is it…
