Mildly surprised no one else posted about this....

Pacific Life has a commercial with video of whales splashing there fins against the water superimposed over some music (Pacific Life "Fight Song," apparently) they had a band play. 

First of all, the timing is awful - several of the "crescendos" are mistimed
Second of all, what the hell do whale fins have to do with insurance?

Who the hell are these marketing people?  Please fire them....

Who the hell are the youtube people that like this commercial?  Please tell me they are joking....

It sounds like a cheap MIDI tune.

(but I could bang my head to it)
We have the power of imagination.

I'VE BEEN HATING THIS COMMERCIAL FOR A YEAR! "We can't play a real college fight song without alienating fans and licensing issues but we want to appeal to college football fans so we'll just use a sh*tty fake Pacific Life fight song with some funny whales "dancing"! Yeah, that's it! Bob, you get a raise!" The song is terrible. It sounds like it's being played on a $20 Casio keyboard.
