Oh Lionel - What Were You Thinking?

U.K. snack brand Walkers has given Lionel Richie a chance at a second life in this new commercial where Lionel changes the words of his once hit song, "Say You, Say Me," with corny lyrics like "Extra crunchy. Save one for me."

Back in 1986, Lionel Richie recorded "Say You, Say Me" for the film White Nights starring Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines. Life for Lionel must have sunk to a new low to cause him to bastardize his once high-performing single to this garbage. This commercial is an absolute disaster.

Lionel fan or not, it's hard to understand why he would stoop to this level to earn a few bucks.

One can only conclude that he really needed a few bucks.

Thanks to for sharing this truly inspiring ad with me.
