Only 16 seconds long, but I still want to stab my eardrums when I hear it.

Ughhhhh this ad. This ad! It's so freaking awful. I don't even know what's going on. Is this music? Ethnic chanting? You can't even tell what these people are singing or in what language. It's like sandpaper on my ear drums. And can Lipton stop acting like they're selling tea? The last bottle of that Lipton citrus green tea stuff I drank said the first ingredient was HFCS. The actual tea was about 5-7 ingredients down on the list. That's f**king gross.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

It's pretty terrible but there's nothing "ethnic" about the chanting. It's clearly in english and after looking up the band that wrote the song (yes, I know. It's an actual f**king song) I'm not sure you can find too many other bands whiter than these folks.

Why? Just why?
Nobody seriously says to themselves "I want some ice tea and I definitely should get Lipton because of this commercial even thought its unrealistic and overall boring." Ermm Come on people, these commercials don't want us to buy your tea! It makes us want to drink a glass of water.

CryThat commercial makes me cry because I hate it so much and am not allowed to legally smacky anyone around, out of frustration and disgust.

Sounds like that "world beat" crap.  Some white people love that sh*t.  Usually, they're whiter than white.  Often, though, they'll throw in a black musician or two for credibility.
 
 
Here they are.  Look at 'em!  Whatta buncha Pomplamooses.  I'm disgusted.
 
 
Is that one guy actually flashing a gang sign??!  Shocked  Yeah, right.  Where's the pic of him flashing all his cash and holding a gun sideways?  LOL
 
Oh, and they're called "The Givers".  Christ Almighty.  The Givers.  I guess Up With People was already taken.  I actually wanna gag.

Ugh, the song in this commercial makes my ears bleed, and after being force-fed the commercial at least a hundred times, I still have no freaking idea what they're saying - probably because it hurts my brain so much that my mind just blocks the words.

Has anyone deciphered the gibberish lyrics of this song? I have a need to understand things I despise.

Here's the part in the commercial.
 
Oh, we up up up for the good show
Yeah we down down here on the ground
Yeah we up up up up above love
Yeah we up up up through the clouds
Yeah we up, yeah we up
Yeah we up, yeah we up
 
 
I just wish they'd shut up up up.

OMG these people are downright annoying.

I swear if these people disappeared from the the Earth tommrow, the only people who would miss them more, besides their families, are hipster douchebags.
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

The vid's been taken down so I can't see it nor have I seen it that I know of, but somehow I get the feeling my ears have been spared.

The commercial just started running again after a brief hiatus and I do my best every time to mentally block it out... It is infectious, but not like good infectious, like aural herpes infectious.

Thor sums up my feelings pretty nicely:

YASSSSSSSSS
