“Aloutte” – Pluck You Commercial

Target has a trippy, colorful commercial with a guaranteed earworm. We used to sing the song in kindergarten – in French – having no idea of the meaning.  It’s pretty bizarre.  The commercial’s theme is how Target can change your drab world of dull clothes into bright, exciting colors.

A hot air balloon floats down into brown-town filled with colorful, high energy acrobats. They race through the town whipping off the dull clothes of amazed people and replacing them with flashy apparel.

The song is OK – until you learn what it really says.  Alloute is a small, pretty bird we call a “lark.”  The song goes,

Little skylark, lovely little skylark
Little lark, I’ll pluck your feathers off
I’ll pluck the feathers off your head
Off your beak
Off your neck
Off your wings
Off your head – off your head
Little lark, little lark
O-o-o-o-oh, alloute….

“Alloute” could be the theme song for potential serial killers who start by torturing animals.  I know a lot of fairy tales are pretty grisly too – so hey, I may be making too much of kids being exposed to happy violence.  We saw it when we were kids…

… and look how well we turned out.

Being stupid has its costs. If your lover was a dentist and you dumped her for another lady, would you still make an appointment with her for a toothache?

Marek Olszewski, 45, of London somehow thought that was a good idea.  So he booked a time with his ex-lover, 34-year-old Dentist Anna Mackowia.  Dr. Macowia thought she could remain “professional and detached” for the examination. Wrong!

She put Marek under anesthesia and then proceeded to pull out every one of his 32-teeth! She then bandaged up the dolt and sent him home.  We can only imagine Mr. Olszewski’s surprise when he took off the bandages and saw just a  mouthful of gums!

Dr. Mackowia, D.D.S. is now facing three years in prison for medical malpractice.  And Olszewski?  Sadly, he was dropped by his new girlfriend because she “couldn’t go out with a bloke who had no teeth.”
