Watch: Jon LaJoie would like you to use his song... in your commercial.

Written by

SingleI've featured comedian Jon LaJoie a few times over the years, most notably with this NSFW slice of awesome (that I still listen to) and his 2008 jam, "Stay at Home Dad." He gets better all the time, and his latest effort is about licensing... getting a song in a National commercial. I feel it. I was in a National spot once (Wendy's), and with the music industry being pretty messed-up, scoring a commercial gig of any kind is a great way to pay the bills. LaJoie thinks he has the perfect song for a product... any product. Seriously, anything can be sold with his new song. Check out the video for "Please Use This Song" below...
