A sassy radio commercial for a fake Boy George LP has aired in Mormon Country, but it's too hot for cool L.A.
As heard over KLUB in Salt Lake City, the parody ad--complete with a Boy George-sound-alike crooner and Culture Club sound--toys with several of the band's hits as it stabs unkind fun at the Boy's recent drug problems.
Listeners are urged to pick up the "detoxifying" new album "Hooked on George," which is "on the charts and shooting up." "You always knew his music was junky," the phony announcer booms. "Now he is too."
Meanwhile, the phony Boy sings "I'll Shoot Up for Ya," then segues to "Do you really want to bust me, do you really want to send me to jail" before closing with a takeoff on the hit "War Is Stupid": "Smack is stupid. Drugs are stupid. I am stupid, 'cause I'm an addict."
