Forever – Real Life Funnier Than Fiction
…You ever notice that real life can be far funnier than fiction? For like over a YEAR now I have been trying to figure out what it is about the song Forever by Chris Brown that nags at something in the back of my head, something nostalgic. Now matter what I did, I couldn’t get the thought loose. And that’s when it finally hit me: Doublemint gum. The lyric “Double your pleasure, double your fun” sounds ridiculously like “Double the flavour, double the fun”.
Once I realised this, I immediately began to suspect that the song actually ripped it off. But nope, not the case here. In fact it turns out that the song was actually written with the intent to be used as the new Doublemint jingle in a commercial. Apparently the deal that Wrigley, the company behind Doublement, had made with Brown was terminated after the Brown/Rihanna incident, and because I wanna keep a MUCH more heated debate off this site, that’s all I wanna say about that.
So yeah, all that time it really was a gum commercial jingle. And because I didn’t feel any inclination to check out sources regarding that, that is why I am just NOW finding out this…well, VERY stupid story. Again, real life: It’s far funnier than fiction.
