Singing Fish Advertisment

VIA Animal New York

If I had to single out one horrible thing that I never want to see/hear in my life, it would be 25 twitching, singing wall fish burping out “Shake Your Booty” by KC & the Sunshine Band. Well, so much for that.

Frozen seafood company Findus wanted to alert Parisians to the fact that they are committed to responsibly sourced fish. So, their agency, Grey Paris, put up this invasive billboard in Rue de Passy. The fish are activated by a motion detector. And since this is of course a busy pedestrian area of the city, the fish must pretty much be singing that fucking song 24/7. How much fun it must be to live in close proximity to this thing? Now if they sang this ditty instead… |Video: BAOTV|
