Osbornes sing "Those Were The Days" and my ears bleed.

I keep the TV on as background noise usually and this commercial is on every 5 minutes... it's so annoying I might actually have to get up to change the channel. Bah

Actually, it was a funny commercial, IMO. They sing about Jack getting laid, and back when they said ****, ****, and things like that. Sure, Sharon can't sing, but who cares. I guess it's cool NOT to like the Osbournes.

Well, maybe you haven't heard it 30 times in one day. That's probably why you still like it.

At least it isn't nearly as annoying as the original tune. Now that was freaking annoying!

The voices are SUPPOSED to be bad since it's a parody of the All In The Family opening, which was equally bad.

What's worse is there is going to be a third season of this crap! Ozzy can't even walk!

I don't know what I hate more--the Osbournes Pepsi twist commercial or the All In The Family parody. I'm so friggin' sick of The Osbournes at this point, especially Kelly and Sharon's incessant whining at every public appearance they make. I hope they go off the air soon and let MTV get back to showing videos!

Ozzy has officially been lame for a long time now, in my book.

Erm... you do realize that MTV pretty much stopped showing videos long before the Osbournes debuted, right?

Actually I think that MTV really died in about '95 or '96. After Beavis & Butthead was cancelled and Alternative Rock fell out of favor, MTV just didn't seem the same.
