U Condominiums:
"It's all about U. U. It's all about U. Yeah U. U. I like the way U move. It's all about U..."

Mercer Condominiums:
"Whoa-oh, oh Mercer, Mercer, me. Yeah, the Mercer is where I want to be. Ah-oh, in the heart of the ci-ty, the Mercer is where I want to be..." (what an awful parody of a song)

Chaz on Charles:
I heard a radio jingle the other day for the very first time. I don't remember how it goes exactly, but I do remember it was really lame.


I'm sure there are more out there.

The worst one I ever heard was:

"Tell me when will you be mine...Won't you tell me condo, condo"

This parody of Quando, Quando, Quando took cheesiness to a whole new level. I didn't know whether to laugh or be angered by such junk; fortunately I was driving down a decent stretch of Scarlett Road just north of Eglinton with its calming greenery when I first heard it.

I don't mind the one for Chaz, it is not (as far as I know) a ripoff of a tune that I used to like. But I can't believe that the copyright owners of "Mercy me" gave permission for it to be used to promote the Mercer. It makes my teeth ache.

Although this is not for a specific project... the Tribute Communities commercial they always play on CP24 during Hot Property. This commercial is so annoying it makes me want to throw my remote at the TV. :mad:

I can't stand that Mercer one. I have to change the channel when that comes on. Hopefully they didn't pay someone to come up with that idea.
