‘Mad Avenue Blues’ is a really funny (in my humble opinion) re-working of the Don Mclean classic ‘American Pie’, which you may remember was not so lovingly butchered by Madonna a few years ago.
At almost 10 minutes long, it is the same length as the original version of the song and has a multitude of silly pictures of ad execs in cheesy old school poses (think Mad Men for those who have seen it) to accompany it.
The basic gist of it is how advertising industry has been challenged by the explosion of online content. Example lyrics include: “Bye bye, those big upfront buys, pitched the client who was pliant, but the pitch didn’t fly…singing ‘tech has taken us for a ride…'”
