hands in my pockets...

I'm sure I'm not the only one out there, but for the past week I've had the "Hands in my Pocket" (click here to listen to a preview of the song) song from a Capital One commercial stuck in my head. It's a clever commercial with a catchy theme song, but wow is it annoying...

The song is performed by Canadian artist Jim Guthrie. According to wikipedia...

He records both as a solo artist and as the guitar player for Islands. He used to be in the band Royal City until they disbanded in 2004.

He was born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, and currently lives in Toronto.

Guthrie first made a name for himself by releasing a series of self-produced cassettes, and subsequently released albums on Three Gut Records. He was nominated for a Juno Award for his album Now, More Than Ever.
On a related note, Rick Mercer put out a great parody of the commercial.

Hands in my pockets, hands in my pockets, hands in my pockets...

Kind of reminds me of all the leadership hopefuls using my money to run their campaigns.

You're not the only out there who has that in their head because YOU KEEP SINGING IT OVER AND OVER! As much as I love you Dave, I might push you into traffic if you don't stop.

Knee in my package, knee in my package...

And pushing Dave into traffic would also make the song stop for him... just sayin' is all.

I didn't know Guthrie wrote that. Pretty cool, the Islands rock.
