Work for Love... and Shasta

One of my favorite blogs out there right now is Slicing Up Eyeballs. They offer insight into a musical world that I'm too young to remember the first time around. This week, they posted something very interesting.

I remember this Shasta ad. I was around three years old when it aired. Maybe you remember it too. Take a look:

Now that you're older, does the voice singing that jingle sound familiar? Turns out, Slicing Up Eyeballs confirms that it was indeed Al Jourgenson of Ministry fame. And he wasn't the only one. Their article also contains a song recorded by Gary Numan, but with lyrics provided by 7-Up. Interesting stuff.
