Repurposed songs to be potentially used for specific industry training videos or something

Would be nice if the farming (or agriculture) industry could use that bit that goes :musical_note::musical_note::musical_note: “Start Spreading The News” :musical_note::musical_note::musical_note: from whatever that song is but they change it so they sing :musical_note::musical_note::musical_note: “Start Spreading Manure” :musical_note::musical_note::musical_note: at the point of the year at which manure should be spread.

Say things like that in here.

PARKLIFE!

But with lyrics about the benefits of parks

Can’t find a video of the ad, but back in the day Shed Seven re-recorded Speakeasy for then mobile phone shop The Link, changing the lyrics of the chorus to ‘At The Link it’s easy’. Horrible, horrible stuff.

^That kind of debate seems so hilariously out of date now…

Excellent. Really, really excellent.

A training video for the use of photocopiers, where the theme is set to the tune of Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel.

“pho- to- copying”
“pho- to- copying”
“pho- to- copying”

everyone I know

my empire of dirt

i felt the “or something” in the thread title left enough wiggle room to include general marketing ideas
