    Like the Saturn people, they stole the Mahna Mahna tune for their commercial. Anyone else seen it?

    How do you know that the song was stolen? How do we know that the song wasn't licensed to Big Lots for use in its comercial?

    I do get a bit annoyed actully the song isn't even a muppet song but it gets associated with it because of the skit.
    Some times I wonder if people even know thids.:sing:

    Dude, I know that this song isn't originally Muppet-made. I'm aware of its Swedish beginnings ;) I just chose the word 'stole' and simply meant used. Don't get all jittery.

    Good gosh, it's practically a crime wave...

    Actually, it's quite good that everyone accosiates it with Muppets. It's publicity...in some form or another.

    The original Mahna Mahna song or this version?

    They put in the words "You Never Know" and it sounds like "Mahna Mahna"

    Once again JimHensonHour, I think you're taking what I say too personal, so I digress. Here's a smiley face for you so you know I'm not trying to be rude. :)

    I really don't like the Big Lots version.

    Replacing "mahna mahna" with "you never know" is jsut too much of a stretch for me.
