Don't know if y'all have been watching much of the Olympic action this past week, but if you have, you may have been watching all those neat commercials that get airplay during the broadcasts. Now I know there have been many good ones, but one in particular resonates with me. Although I am vegetarian, and McDonalds is repulsive to me I gotta give them some props for finding a deep cut for their latest ad. The spot features "A Minha Menina," a 40-year-old tune from Brazilian Tropicália heroes Os Mutantes, who have been recording new material since their reunion tour two years ago.
Not a new song for anyone listening to RadioMilwaukee though, we're on that; though I'll skip the happy meal and dish you a slice from the video. Enjoy the tune...
