    I didn't know that this was a BNL song until I noticed that they were the same group who performed the "Shoe Box" song on my "Freiends" soundtrack.

    This song needs to be on iTunes. It's AWESOME!

    I rather like this one. I played it for a sociology class, and my teacher was seriously like, "What in the f**k?" Teachers don't normally curse, but it was worth it.

    No it's about racial tolerance and being thankful for being the way that you are.

    I never knew Bare Naked Ladies performed this. I remember being annoyed by this ad way back when, but it's not quite as bad as I remember.

    I'll keep this in mind the next time an extra-terrestrial visitor stops by my house for a pizza.

    They sound a lot like They Might Be Giants...also, I'm pretty sure they are saying "and then there was weed". So, maybe it's really a drug PSA?

    The heavens parted and in a beam of pure white light, the angels sang the hallelujah chorus... I have been looking for this clip since I got a computer (years & years). It's as good as I remember! I've been wanting to show my daughter (bnl fan, but too young to remember the spots) I also remember a another one about equality of the sexes, but I don't know who sings that one.

    I never knew about this, that's great. This is probably one of my favorite PSAs ever.
    NickelodeonFan97 Posted 10 years 9 months ago
    Yeah i totally remember seeing this on FOX Kids, I don't think it ever aired on any other channels.

    Now I really miss Fox Kids.

    Shit, I remember this. I liked the little reference to Michael Jackson's "Black Or White".

    I remember seeing this commercial on Fox Kids Saturday Morning back in 1993 or so. It's one of those ones I remember, even now. And the Barenaked Ladies had become big in Canada in those days, so I remember, back then, being surprised to see them on an American network.

    WOW now thats a flash back
    ChowTimer Posted 11 years 11 months ago
    That was weird. I think I remember this a little. That guy's head did look a little bit like a fruit though.

    I thought this PSA was about becoming a spaceman or astronaut. I sure as hell didn't remember the very end at all nor the overall message. Catchy tune, though; didn't know that the Barenaked Ladies sang this.

    Just a year ago I began to remember this PSA... but just the end. I never dreamed I'd se it again ^_^ Ah memories... I feel like crying... ^_^

    Aww, I wish I had seen this commercial when it was on!
    beenkissinwho Posted 12 years 4 months ago
    That is nice! I really liked this Commercial.

    I'll probably get this comment deleted but:

    BNL is Awesome and Gordon is by far one of their best albums.

    I never knew that it was these guys who sung it!
