Does anybody remember the Jiffy Lube campaign from (ahem nevermindhowmany) YEARS ago that had them putting humorous lyrics over classical music? Like "Rite of Spring" and the like?
Some of the lyrics (granted remembered sporadically) were
"And I wish I'd gone to Jiffy Lube/
'Cause I don't like hitching rides with motley dudes/now I'm in a pasture/freezing off my kiester..."
***
"I'm agitated and so is my Cabriolet..."
***
I have no brakes/I'm in a field/my legs feel like rubber/tell my wife I love her..."

Speaks to how well the campaign worked that even myself as a virtual non-driver can remember this much of RADIO spots this many years on!
I always LOVED these and found them HILARIOUS and felt they deserved FAR more nostalgia/remembrance and love than I have seen they have heretofore received. So...maybe we can even dredge up a FULL lyrics/libretto list! THAT would be AMAZEBALLS!

Your description is very good...I still had trouble finding what you describe.



I do my own oil changes here at the aka ranch. But we all have some classical gas. Embarrassed
