You can see the Swiffer mop-thingy ad with Devo singing a modified version of Whip It here.

Mark Mothersbaugh of the RugRats, um, Devo says that the band agreed to do it because it was just so absurd. And he’s right.

  1. I got a swelling itchy brain.

  2. Fun. And a continuation of the practice of appealing to us through our musical memories.. I can’t wait until the Stones’ “Satisfaction” is used in a Viagra-like-product’s ad!

  3. I very much like what You are doing here on this forum – Thanks! Please also take a look at our sites about the Okanagan Valley in B.C., (British Columbia) Canada – Some useful real estate and accommodation Links.

  4. actually the “ad” seems to work with just about any DEVO song …

  5. Hearing the stylized funk of Talking Heads’ “Making Flippy Floppy” (off the immortal 1983 “Speaking In Tongues”), I remembered the Devo mom dancing while using the Swiffer. A great achievement in absurdity. Thanks for bringing it to the Internet. (I’ve mentioned it today on my blog, which has an audience of nearly 20 people!)
