Status Quo Reports Have Finally Met Their Rival

I'd never seen this Starbuck's commercial before, but now I can't stop watching it. It totally cracks me up.

(Link courtesty of Mikey.)

I've seen this a few times, but could really never figure out if it was really Survivior or a tribute group assembled for the commercial.

If it is Survivor...then I guess this is where bands from the 80s go to die.

i've seen this commercial many times. however, i haven't seen it in its entirety. it's a funny commercial. it brings me back to when i was in elementary school and this boy who lived a few houses down from us kept on playing "Eye of the Tiger" on LP all the time. he had it on a 45! LOL

LOL! I love that commercial. Sam bought that drink the other day, and kept singing that song while he had it. (It's actually pretty good - especially considering it's basically coffee in a can.)

I love this commercial! Every time my wife and I watch this we crack up. It is second only to commercials with pugs in them. :)

being an Aussie I'd never seen it before. Hillarious! My boxing fitness instructor plays Eye of the Tiger during class to motivate us. Now all I can think about during box is that commercial!

Hey girl - hope things are OK. You haven't posted in over a week...

.: cybertoad said on August 31, 2004 04:43 PM :: link it :.

yep, that commercial kicks ass... i love it, and the other day my boyfriend was like, "you know that's the actual group that sings 'eye of the tiger' in the commercial right?" and i was like, "no way!!", it brought the commercial to a new level for me. ;) and sometimes at work you can hear me say, "roy, roy roy roy, roy roy roy..." oh no.
