The Dodgers unveiled their latest "This Is My Town" billboard, featuring the Black Eyed Peas, just in time for the playoffs. If this leads to "Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night" replacing "Don't Stop Believing" in the eighth inning at Dodger Stadium, we're all for it.

There was a funny moment before the playoff clincher in Pittsburgh a couple weeks back. The Dodgers had been warming up on the field and were randomly coming back to the dugout when the PA started playing "Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night". Matty was walking down the steps to go to the clubhouse and did the "woooohooooo!" part

Don't include me in that we! I'd take DSB over that overplayed autotune garbage any day.

(Though I still say "The Touch" should replace DSB.)

I like Black Eyed Peas as much as I like fried okra.

Not a lot.

BEP shoots immediately into the top 3 Dodgers signage of people who know or care nothing about the actual team. Hell, Yoda is more of a hardcore fan than BEP.

-Dusty.I.Am.

This group should be shot on sight for releasing the terrible, unfinished, poorly written, excuse for a song "Boom Boom Pow!"

Loney Fan said...

I'll sit in a room listening to "Don't Stop Believing" ten times in a row before I listen to the Black Eyed Peas once. Especially that song. That song is played every damn day. They are not ALL going to be good nights! Sometimes you are just going to have a mediocre night and that's okay too.

Loney Fan said...

I agree they should be shot. But that is just one of the thousand of reasons why.

4-7s:

Take a drink of straight Pisco for making me think about "Boom Boom Pow" this early in the morning. And for calling it a song at all.

Do people actually get paid to "entertain" with that kind of trip? It's like someone gave a fifth grader a Mac and a mic and said make a song about the first three things that come to mind, and playing X-box is what came to mind. Boom Boom Pow, yeah, that's it.

QuadSevens said...

Dusty - Punishment accepted. I think they also recorded that "song" with a faucet on in the background. How else do you explain the low hum that plays throughout the "song?"

And whats with the poses for this billboard? You've got a bad Bruce Lee pose, ballerina/ninja, an ice speed skater, and a guy who looks like he's jumping off of a ledge.

Loney Fan said...

Obviously you are not cool enough to understand Quad. That's what makes them so awesome! Sometimes they wake up and want to use a tie for a belt, or die one part of their hair green, or wear a leopard print vest with plaid golf pants. It's edgy and hip. You're just not an artist so you'll never get it.

QuadSevens said...

Haha! You are exactly right LoneyFan. I'll never get it. But at least I can say that I've never peed my pants at work.

Folks, this is what fuels the East Coast Bias.
The Yanks have Kate Hudson cheering on Bitch Tits in the Bronx.
We have billboards with BEP and Nickleback, and we have beachballs on the field DURING THE GAWDDAMN PLAYOFFS!

Loney Fan said...

That picture of Kate Hudson obligatorily clapping last night made me hate the Yankees even more.

Thanks for the new gchat picture Quad.

Dusty Baker said...

Quad, let's face it. You are tragically un-hip. You say Garanimals, they say giant, over the top jeweled sunglasses. You either have it or you don't, man.

Loney Fan said...

This is what happened -------------> when I tried to be hip like the Black Eyed Peas

QuadSevens said...

Whoa! Turning into Perez Hilton is a bad side effect of trying to be hip. I'm just fine being un-hip and not understanding the BEP.

Dusty Baker said...

At least you didn't turn into Nixon.
