I was looking for another version of Brotherhood of Men from How to Succeed in Business Without Even Trying when I came across a super bowl ad where CBS did a parody of the showtune and actually did an awesome job. I completely forgot about this version and was cracking up when I saw it. Not only is it basically all of the stars from a lot of the older shows from the network, but they can actually sing extremely well as well.
What many people forget is that a lot of tv and even movie stars are also able to sing. A lot of them went to school for acting and were also trained how to dance, sing and perform. Depending on which media or type of acting jobs they get cast in determines what talents they get to show off. Just because you’ve never heard them sing or perform before doesn’t mean they can’t. I think that is why I love this super bowl ad parody of Brotherhood of Men from How to Succeed in Business Without Even Trying. It has a ton of celebrities that we all know showing that they can actually sing and perform like they are on broadway, instead of just their normal acting roles which we see on tv or in the movies on a regular basis.
This parody is a bit older so some of the characters might not be relevant anymore, but it’s also fun to see which ones and which shows you can recognize. The other fun thing is that the characters in the parody keep their tv show characters’ personas. Because many of the shows take place in an office building, the funny part is they all mesh together and the parody actually works with all of the characters from different shows combined into one song about being in a large corporation. This parody of Brotherhood of Men from How to Succeed in Business is awesome and CBS did an awesome job with it. I think my favorite part is the Betty White comment in the beginning, but there are a ton of other great things they added. Feel free to share your own favorite part in the comments below.
