I cant find it on youtube. But im sure all of you have seen this commercial with the red and white paint being thrown in the background and WORST song of all time played in the background during reds highslights....:thumbdown

Not only is the song just terrible. But I CANT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE HECK SHE IS SINGING> Its driving me crazy.

The wife and I have broke it down to a few different things she may be singing.

"we'll win the town back"

"We'll paint the town red"

We had some others but i cant remember now.

Anybody clue me on what the heck she is singing so this commercial might make some sense to me.

I havent seen it yet but I'm sure I won't be surprised....we often have the most corniest commericals associated with our team......JTM Arroyo/Welsh commercials were about as low as it gets.

They play it on 700WLW as well.

Nobody has seen or heard this commercial. Maybe the reds are just picking on me!

It is "Paint The Town Red" and it is even more annoying than last season's JTM commercials. I've seen it maybe a dozen times and am already sick of it...the production values mirror that of a high school broadcasting club.

Im glad im not crazy and everybody else thinks this ad sucks.

seriously one of the most promising pre-seasons in a few years and a terrible broadcast like this with a terrible singer and song writer is what we get:rolleyes:

Thanks cincinnati


Not to mention what kind of ad campaign is "we'll paint the town red'

I wonder if somebody should tell them that could be seen as a MASS MURDER! bloodbath

Well, think of it this way: The less they spend on commercials, the more they can spend on baseball.

I was surprised it got moved too, seemed reds related to me. Way more reds related than all the stupid Adam Dunn threads, who i don't know if they know this or not yet, doesn't play for the Reds anymore, lol.

It sucks, but it doesn't nearly come close enough to some of the gems from last year. Throw in some of the political ads and this ad is childs play.

Who can forget "Im backin Black"?

Instant Rage!

I think most would agree as well.

I searched through the reds site and still havent found a link. Apparently its so bad they want to make sure it sticks to TV and wlw only. I havent heard yet today and Today was a good day!

You apparently have watched too many Freddy Krueger movies. "Paint the town red" is an idiom. www.usingenglish.com states: If you go out for a night out with lots of fun and drinking, you paint the town red.

I guess they'll still cut off alcohol sales late in the game (per MLB rules, of course), which might abate some of the "painting the town red".

It has nothing to do with bloodbaths.

Gotta say, I've never heard "paint the town red" meaning murder either. :confused:

As the guy linked above. Paint the town red is also known as a murder or many slain.

And the I-tunes has a clip of the song but it doesnt really do the suckage justice. But you do at least get the point. But picture low quality reds highlights going on in the back ground of that music and you get the comercial.
