Although many agreed, I definitely caught some hell from a few fans for saying that the entertainment experience at Lambeau Field falls extremely short. To further my case I offer you Pat McCurdy, a no name singer who apparently will be releasing a song in conjunction with Miller Lite to be played on the jumbotron repeatedly at Lambeau Field.
This song will be marketed with viral video and thousands of dollars in sponsor money. I offer this exhibit for your viewing pleasure below.
Are you frickin’ kidding me? You find a crappy singer, who plays local fairs and doesn’t write sports songs, to write a Packer song for the jumbotron at a multi-million dollar event? Absolutely f’in brilliant. Someone payed money for this? Seriously? You even filmed a video? Did you film it in front of the corn dog and deep fried Twinkie booth, or is it just various clips of you singing on the tilt-a-whirl and gravatron?
I know the Packer rap was bad, and there have been a few other questionable songs too, but this takes the cake as the crappiest Packers song that anyone ever paid money for. Hell, even my 30 minute parody cuts on a twelve dollar head set mic are almost better than this.
Bottom line, this nonsense has to stop. I’m all for showcasing local talent, but only if it isn’t embarrassing. What’s even worse is that Lambeau DJ will most likely follow this one up with three Mellencamp tracks and then the G-Force song. Please Green Bay and Miller Lite, no one wants to see this piece of garbage played on the jumbotron. Just kindly turn down the offer and advise Miller Lite to fire the guy who was obviously hammered out of his gourd when he agreed to this deal. McCurdy might be a good singer, but as he openly admits, “He doesn’t write sports songs.”
That’s pretty apparent.
Note: I am already catching hell for this. So, I have added a poll for those less vocal.
