Me ears are alight

Heard the Desmond Dekker song “The Israelites” on the radio today, and I haven’t been able to get the Maxell advert out of my head all afternoon. That was a great advert. Had a guy standing there holding up boards with the words of the song written on them, while it played on the soundtrack:

Get up in the morning, baked beans for breakfast
Sold out to every monk and beefhead
Woah-ohhhh, me ears are alight!
Why find me kids, they buck up and a-leave me
Darling cheese head I was yards too greasy
Woah-ohhhh! Me ears are alight!

and then it said “Should have bought Maxell“, Maxell being an audio tape manufacturer. “Monk and beefhead“. Class.
