Monkee Davy Jones, 66, has died. Let's look at the last ads he did.


(click ads, from a 2007 issue of Investor's Business Daily)
Many Baby Boomers right now are fondly remembering their favorite fake Monkees song, sung by Jones. This isn't a music blog, though, it's an ad blog. So, let's—maybe not as fondly—remember these ads Davy did for online stock picker Gorilla Trades. He also did a couple of :15 spots for them. RIP, Believer.

Davy Jones?

Better check his dental records.

That might be Ensign Chekov they've got hold of.

I report, you decide, etc.

I'm old enough to have watched and enjoyed the Monkees TV shows as a young child. So, "whatevs" as the US kids say today.

I'm also old enough to have watched the Monkees as a child, not sure what that has to do with anything. My point is that as soon as anyone famous dies, CR, you're not REPORTING, you're delving into your embarrassing ads archive quicker than you can say "ooh aren't I edgy". Like, within a matter of hours. Is that really the first thing that crosses your mind when you hear someone has passed away? "How quickly can I take the piss?"

For this blog, which is an asshole character named copyranter, YES, that is the first thing that crosses my mind. You don't like? Fucking leave. I honestly don't give any fucks. Or get a lawyer, and try to sue, or I don't know. You wanna beat me up? Let's just say, as I've told all the other gutless trolls, GOOD FUCKING LUCK with that.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by that but I always comment in good faith. I see no reason to do otherwise.

My 3:30 was an allusion to the old factoid that Star Trek hired Walter Koenig to capitalize on the popularity of Davy Jones. That we live in a world where such a thing is not only possible but also plausible strikes me as absurdly humorous.

I thought perhaps you were on the same wavelength.

If you don't like my style of commenting, please simply say so and I'll move on.
