Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Tuesday, March 31, 2021

Castrol might just be onto something by concentrating its latest motor-oil marketing message around “your dipstick”. Especially when said dipstick is brandished against you, crazed-Scotsman style:

Heck, I’m not even in the market for motor oil, synthetic or otherwise, and I’m getting my due enjoyment out of this senseless display of car-parts violence. Well done! Almost worth downloading the iPod-friendly version for on-the-go amusement.

I’m guessing the wacky Scotsman angle was devised to inject a memorable comedic accent into this creative, with a nod toward Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. I don’t know why Castrol held back on the tartan stereotype — where’s his kilt?

No particular theme behind this latest presentation of my iTouch’s latest shuffle-generated playback. It simply came out, and I simply captured it below. So there.

The number 8 coming from 8trk. Any day now.

1. “Hit the Decks”, Cirrus - Oh my god.

2. “White Trash Wedding”, Dixie Chicks - It took a nip of gin but you finally took my hand.

3. “Break the Ice (Kaskade Remix)”, Britney Spears - I know it’s been awhile.

4. “Move (Cut Copy Remix)”, CSS - So please hold me tight tonight.

5. “Express Yourself”, N.W.A. - They’d rather exaggerate a little fiction.

6. “Austin’s Theme Song”, Austin Powers Soundtrack - [instrumental, no lyrics - yeah, baby!]

7. “Xanadu (I Live In Newtown John Mix)”, The Olivia Project - The echoes of long ago.

8. “Gittin’ Funky”, Kid ‘N Play - So hyper, you’re gonna need a sedative.
