Recent episodes of these Steven Universe cartoon have revealed that Greg’s signature solo song, ‘Like A Comet’, was actually used for a successful ad campaign.  I find this to be hilarious, as it is in my opinion the best of the Steven Universe songs, but in the end ends up being best used for selling burgers.  Is it a subtle, brilliant commentary on the transient nature of Art?  Or just a one-shot joke from a kids cartoon?  Either way, Greg’s million dollar commercial pitch leads us to today’s mercenary query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wants you to consider the fascinating possibility of Darth Vader singing the healing praises of Bactine, asking: Which fictional character would make the best commercial pitch person?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
