Stretch 'N' Vern present Maddogg, I'm Alive

Today's Transcript:

Your eyes are the part of the body that might need to be corrected with glasses or contact lenses. Contact lenses sit on the eye, as opposed to glasses where the lenses are in a frame. A frame is what you'd put a valuable painting in, like, say, the Mona Lisa. The Mona Lisa was by Leonardo Da Vinci, who was from Italy, like Gino DaCampo. Gino DaCampo cooks on the telly regularly with Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby. Holly Willoughby isn't presenting 'Dancing On Ice' this year, because she's doing 'The Voice' on BBC1 with Reggie Yates. Reggie Yates shares the same surname as the late Paula Yates, who presented 'The Tube' with Jools Holland. Holland's national colour is orange. Orange, first name Jason, makes up a quarter of Take That, who ended phase one of their career with the release of 'How Deep Is Your Love' in 1996. 1996 was also the year that Stretch 'N' Vern released 'I'm Alive', which links to Stretch 'N' Vern present Maddogg and 'I'm Alive'.

Flaws:

Texters claimed that Jason Orange is a fifth rather than a quarter of Take That, but as Dave rightly pointed out, Robbie Williams has now left the band again, so we'll give him that one.

2Pac featuring Dr Dre, California Love

Today's Transcript:

'I'm alive' is what you might hear coming from a deep ice crevice if you found someone who'd been frozen in time for 50 years after getting trapped in the middle of an avalanche. Avalanches the band had a hit entitled 'Frontier Psychiatrist'. A psychiatrist might make you lie on their sofa if you went to see them. If you move the first letter of 'them' you get 'hem', which is something you'd expect to find on the bottom of a dress. 'Dress You Up' was a big hit for Madonna, who's of Italian descent. Descent is a word associated with going down. 'Going Down' was a hit for Melanie C. 'C' is the first letter of 'chemist' and 'California'. california was teh inspiration behind 'California Love' by 2Pac, which links to 2Pac and 'California Love'.

Flaws:

Seamless, although it seems somewhat unlikely that someone could be alive after being frozen for 50 years.

Bloodhound Gang, The Bad Touch

Today's Transcript:

2Pac is sadly no longer with us, and in that respect shares something in common with Robert Louis Stevenson, who wrote 'Treasure Island'. Ireland is home to The Corrs. Cause is something that's combined with effect. Special effects are what they use a lot of in films to make things look dramatic. Dramatic images are what you often see on the news. The news is what Dominic reads every day, while the sport is done by Tina. 'Tina' rhymes with 'Ribena', which is a drink made with blackcurrants. Current is how you might describe this show, cos we are hip and cool. Cool is what you want your room to be if you put the air-conditioning on. On is the opposite of off, in the same way that dogs are the opposite of cats. 'Cats' is a musical that's been running in the West End for years. If you remove the first letter of 'years' you get 'ears', which are particularly large on bloodhounds, which links to Bloodhound Gang and 'The Bad Touch'.

Stereo MCs, Step It Up

Today's Transcript:

A bad touch is what you don't want to have if you're a Premiership footballer. Footballers tend to drive flash cars and spend lots of time playing FIFA 11. 11, first word Oceans, was a film starring Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt is the other half of Angelina Jolie, and they have lots of children from all around the world. 'Around The World in 80 Days' was written by Phineas Fogg. Fog tends to happen when hot and cold air mix. Mix, first name Little, won 'The X-Factor' over Marcus Collins. Marcus Collins shares the same surname as John Collins, who played for Everton and Fulham. Fulham have a statue of Michael Jackson outside their ground. If you were on the ground and wanted to get slightly higher, you might need a step in order to step it up, which links to Stereo MCs and 'Step It Up'.

Flaws:

Dave didn't have his fog facts quite right, as it's actually result of air being cooled to the point where it can no longer hold all of the water vapor it contains. But it is also true that a warm moist air mass blowing over a cold surface (usually snow or ice, or over a cold ocean surface) can also cause fog to form-this is called "advection fog".

Christina Aguilera, Dirrty

Today's Transcript:

Stereo MCs' song 'Connected' was used for years in adverts for that phone warehouse place. Plaice is a fish, a bit like halibut and rock. Rock is also the hard stuff that geologists like to study. Study is what students should do, rather than buy Rizlas and cider. Cider is made from apples, which grow on trees in an orchard. The word 'orchard' shares many of the same letters as the name Richard, which was a popular name for kings in the olden days. In the olden days people tended to travel around on horses. Horses and ponies can be differentiated by their size, as anything less than 14.2 hands in height is a pony. Pony was also the name of a model of car made by Hyundai, from Korea. Career of a different type is how you might describe your long-term job or working life. The word 'life' is made up of four letters, as is 'dirt'. If you're covered in dirt you might be described as 'dirty', which links to Christina Aguilera and 'Dirrty'.

The Verve, Sonnet

Today's Transcript:

Dirty is what you don't want your room to be when you check into a hotel. 'Hotel Babylon' was a TV show that featured celebrity cameos from Chris Moyles and Chantelle Houghton. Chantelle Houghton is now with Alex Reid, who used to be the other half of Katie Price, who used to be married to Peter Andre, who was briefly linked with Elen Rives, who's the ex of Frank Lampard, who scored the winner in Chelsea's victory over Man City on Monday. Monday is the first day of the working week, unless you're a vicar or someone else who has to work on a Sunday. A sundae is an ice-cream dessert that you regularly see on menus in America. America has produced many bands, including Outkast. Outkast's Andre 3000 features on the current song by Lloyd. Lloyd is my middle name, and I like The Verve, which links to The Verve and 'Sonnet'.

Happy Mondays, Step On

Today's Transcript:

Sonnet is a word associated with poetry. Poetry normally involves verses and rhymes, which is why poetry is how you would describe most song lyrics. Lyrics are what Noel Gallagher has written a lot of over the years. Years are made up of months, which are made up of days. 'Days' was a hit for Kirsty Maccoll, who we hear every Christmas on 'Fairytale of New York' with Shane McGowan. Shane McGowan is not known for having perfect teeth, unlike Simon Cowell. Simon Cowell is the boss of The X-Factor, although this year his seat was filled by Gary Barlow. Gary Barlow shares the same surname as Ken Barlow from 'Coronation Street', which is filmed in Manchester. Manchester is the neighbouring city to Salford, which is where much of the BBC's output now comes from, and is also the birthplace of Shaun Ryder. Shaun Ryder fronted the Happy Mondays, which links to the Happy Mondays and 'Step On'.

Flaws:

Poems don't have to have verses or rhymes, but otherwise seamless.

Wildchild, Renegade Master

Today's Transcript:

If you find Mondays happy, that would mean that you like them, which isn't something you could say about Bob Geldof. Bob Geldof is the man behind Live Aid, which was two simultaneous concerts held in London and Philadelphia. Philadelphia is where the Fresh Prince was from before he moved to Bel Air. Bel Air is a posh district of Los Angeles, which is in California. California is governed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, who starred in 'Kindergarten Cop'. Kindergarten is a German word. German is the nationality of former Olympic skater Katerina Witt. 'Witt' rhymes with 'quit', which is what you'd be doing if you packed in your job. 'Job' can be preceded by 'tough' and 'hard'. Hard is what it must be to co-ordinate someone like Davina McCall's busy showbiz schedule. When Davina McCall was younger she was a wild child, which links to Wildchild and 'Renegade Master'.

Flaws:

Watertight.

Muse, Feeling Good

Today's Transcript:

'Master' rhymes with 'castor', which are those little wheels on the bottom of chairs. Chairs are something you find a lot of in schools, along with children. 'Children' was a big hit for Robert Miles, and miles are something you'd cover a lot of if you were a long distance lorry driver. Driver, first name Minnie, is a British actress who's well known in Hollywood. Hollywood is the movie capital of the world, but is also an area of Birmingham. Birmingham is set to be a lot easier to get to by train in approximately 20 years. 20 years is the amount of time it would take to have had four leap years. This year is a leap year, and is also an Olympic year. If you remove the first letter of 'years' you get 'ears', which is a word associated with corn. Corn is something recommended to keep you healthy and feeling good, which links to Muse and 'Feeling Good'.

Flaws:

Once again problem-free.

Utah Saints, Something Good

Today's Transcript:

Feeling good is what you'd hope to be if you'd just spent the weekend at a health farm. Health, wealth and happiness are what most people desire in life. Life is the maximum sentence in the penal system. System Of A Down are an American band whose best known song is called 'Chop Suey'. Chop suey is something you'd expect to find on the menu at a Chinese restuarant, along with spring rolls and crispy duck. Duck is what you have to do a lot of in the sport of sailing. Sailing is something we all did when we went to Bangor, on the Menai Straits. Straits, combined with corners, are what make up the design of all race circuits. Circuits of a different type are associated with the world of electronics. In electrical wiring you get wires that are different colours, like brown or blue. The word 'blue' is made up of four letters, which is the same amount as the American state of Utah, which links to Utah Saints and 'What Can You Do For Me'.

(Track begins to play)

Chris: Woah, woah, woah, woah. What's this?
Dave: No, no, no.
Chris: What's this?
Dave: This isn't the original.
Chris: Not the original.
Matt: It's the Drumsound and Bassline Smith remix.
Chris: What did you just say?
Matt: Drumsound and Bassline Smith remix. It's a new version, yeah.
Chris: I don't know if this is the new version.
Matt: No, it's definitely new. The original's a bit more, "Utah Saints!"
Chris: I know...but Utah Saints remix it every year. It's like Paul McCartney's 'Wonderful Christmastime' coming out every 12 months.
Dave: We don't like change.
Chris: What year, Dave?
Dave: Errr....92, wasn't it? I think.
Aled: Well, it says 91 on here.
Dave: 91, then. 'Something Good' I think was 92. Was this before 'Something Good'?
Matt: I think it might have been, yeah.
Chris: I'm gonna have a look for it, Dave.
Dave: Just call it 91. I'm just gonna have a little check here now. Because we don't like change, and we don't like modern versions of stuff. Not in a classic music feature.
Chris: I've got Roxette, 'Joyride'...
Dave: No...that was 91, definitely.
Chris: Scorpions, 'Wind Of Change'...
Dave: Dreadful record.
Chris: Right Said Fred, 'I'm Too Sexy'...
Dave: Nope.
Aled: Got it!
Chris: You have?
Aled: Yep.
Dave: It was...it was August 91.
Aled: This looks like the same...
Matt: It's the same duration.
Chris: Yeah, you've given us exactly the same track. Ha ha ha! Should we just play it anyway? Alright.

(Track begins to play again)

Chris: I've got 'Something Good'? But I don't have 'What Can You Do For Me'.
Dave: Well, should we have the original of 'Something Good' instead of this?
Chris: I can get that on if you want.
Dave: I think that's probably better, don't you think?
Chris: Yeah. 'Something Good' is still a good track.
Dave: Yeah.

(Track stops)

Chris: That was great! That was Utah Saints.
Dom: That was great.
Chris: And here's another track from Utah Saints! You ready?
Dave: Yep.
Chris: But this is still a wicked track. Alright? If you've never heard this before, turn it up. Trust me, you're gonna love it. It's a Utah Saints montage!

Flaws:

Dave stated afterwards that he thought System Of A Down may actually be Armenian. Singer Serj and drummer John are Lebanese, bassist Shavo is Armenian, and guitarist Daron is American - so he was partially right. This aside from the issues with the track itself!

Hanson, Where's The Love

Today's Transcript:

'Something Good' was released in 1992, the same year REM released 'Automatic For The People'. People is the collective term for more than one person, while 'person' rhymes with 'Merson', as in Paul Merson, who played for Arsenal and Aston Villa football clubs. Clubs is a suit in a deck of cards, along with diamonds. Diamonds are forever, and 'Forever Love' was a number one for Gary Barlow. Gary Barlow shares the same surname as Ken Barlow, who is played by William Roache. If you put a '*' in front of 'roach' you get '*', which is the only creature that would survive a nuclear holocaust, along with Sinitta. Sinitta was recently pictured onboard a luxury yacht with Simon Cowell. Simon Cowell is a music mogul, and a mogel of a different type is like a speed bump that people ski over. 'Over' is how you'd describe the career of Hanson, which links to Hanson and 'Where's The Love'.

Flaws:

Hanson's career is far from over - they last released an album in 2010, toured extensively in 2011, and even appeared in the video for Katy Perry's hit 'Last Friday Night (TGIF)'.

Blink 182, All The Small Things

Today's Transcript:

'Where Is The Love' was the title of a hit song by the Black Eyed Peas. Peas in this country tend to be either garden or mushy. 'Moshi moshi' is how the locals answer the phone in Japan. In Japan, some of the cleverest things are invented on a daily basis. Daley, first name Tom, is an Olympic diver who we met the other week in Plymouth. Plymouth Argyle play at Home Park. Home is where the heart is, which is not good news if you're a courier delivering an organ for a transplant operation. An operation normally involves a hospital and nurses. Nurses work long hours in tough conditions. Conditions and terms are the small print that you read in all competitions these days. 'These Days' was a hit in 1996 for Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi's name begins with 'B', and in that respect share something in common with Blink 182, which links to Blink 182 and 'All The Small Things'.

Flaws:

A couple of points today: peas in the UK also come in marrowfat, and although some people say "moshi moshi" to answer the phone in Japan, "hai" is used more often in business.

Faithless, We Come 1

Today's Transcript:

Small things can easily be lost down the sofa or underneath your bed. 'Bed' in French is 'lit', and 'lit' in English is the past tense of 'to light'. Light is what most living things need in order to grow, although certain marine life can exist on the sea bed in darkness. The Darkness are one of the biggest bands ever to come out of Lowestoft, which is in the Far East, but not the same Far East where you'd find Vietnam. Vietnam is now encouraging tourism, which is an important part of the economy in Cornwall. Cornwall is currently being explored on TV by Caroline Quentin, who used to be in 'Men Behaving Badly' with Neil Morrissey. Neil Morrissey is mates with Bob the Builder, who is a good builder, and not the sort who'd be apprehemded on TV after duping innocent customers who employed him in good faith. The opposite of faith is faithless, which links to Faithless and 'We Come 1'.

Flaws:

Faithless is the opposite of faithful...but otherwise seamless.

EMF, Unbelievable

Today's Transcript:

Faithless include a lady singer called Sister Bliss. 'Bliss' rhymes with 'Swiss', which is the nationality of Roger Federer. Roger Federer lost the semi-finals of the Australian Open last week in Australia. 'Australia' was a hit for the Manic Street Preachers, who are from Wales, which has its own special Welsh Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is associated with St Valentine, who was a Saint in Ancient Rome. Rome attracts a lot of visitors every year who flock to see its old buildings, like the Coliseum. The Coliseum is also the name of a venue in Watford where we saw Oasis in intimate surroundings. Surrounding is what the police might do to a building if there were baddies inside that they wanted to catch. Catch is what you do to fish in a river, and if you were fishing and caught a trout that weighed 400lbs people would say to you "that's unbelievable", which links to EMF and 'Unbelievable'.

Flaws:

Sister Bliss is not a singer but a keyboard player.

Baby D, Let Me Be Your Fantasy

Today's Transcript:

Unbelievable and incredible basically mean the same thing. 'Thing' rhymes with 'ring', which is what a telephone does when you're trying to get hold of someone. 'Someone Should Tell You' was a hit for Lemar in 2006, which was six years ago. Six years is one less than seven years, which is when they say you get an itch in relationship terms. 'Terms' rhymes with 'perms', which were popular in the 80s with footballers like Kevin Keegan. Kevin Keegan shares the same surname as Michelle Keegan, who goes out with Max from The Wanted. 'Wanted' is what it used to say on posters in the Wild West when they were looking for a bad guy. Guy Chambers is a writer and producer who was involved in the early hits of Robbie Williams in the late 90s, which was also the decade that brought us combat trousers, popularised by All Saints. The Appleton sisters from All Saints had a hit entitled 'Fantasy', which links to Baby D and 'Let Me Be Your Fantasy'.

Lenny Kravitz, Are You Gonna Go My Way

Today's Transcript:

'Let Me Be Your Fantasy' was released in 1994 and then re-released in 2000, the year that we entered a new millenium. 'Millenium' was the first ever solo no1 for Robbie Williams in 1998. 1998 was also the year that 'Stop' was a hit for the Spice Girls, who included Emma. 'Emma' is a book by Jane Austen, who also wrote 'Pride & Prejudice'. Prejudice is not normally regarded as an attractive quality, like generosity and nice legs. Legs connect your bum to your ankles. Ankles are what you'd be showing off if you were wearing rolled-up trousers and no socks. 'Socks' rhymes with 'cox', which is what you'd expect to see in a rowing boat. If you swap the first letter of 'boat' for a 'C' you get 'coat', which is what you'd need to be wearing in this weather if you were hitchhiking. If somebody stopped for you while you were hitchhiking you'd want to ask 'are you gonna go my way', which links to Lenny Kravitz and 'Are You Gonna Go My Way'.

Flaws:

The millenium started in 2001, not 2000. We've covered this several times before!

Blackstreet featuring Dr Dre, No Diggity

Today's Transcript:

Lenny Kravitz was born in New York, which is the same city that gave us the Beastie Boys. 'Girls And Boys' was a big hit for Blur. 'Blur' sounds a bit like 'beurre', which is French for butter. Butter is a dairy product, so not good for those who are lactose intolerant. Intolerance is not a good quality and can lead to war. 'War' is an anagram of 'raw', which is what you don't want the middle of your chicken to be at a barbecue. Barbecues are popular with Australians, who also like cricket and surfing. Surfing is also enjoyed in Cornwall in resorts like Newquay, which is lovely in the summer. 'Summer Lovin'' is a song from the musical 'Grease', which starred John Travolta. John Travolta is from America, as are the band No Doubt. The phrase "no doubt" is usually preceded by "no diggity", which links to Blackstreet and 'No Diggity'.

Flaws:

The song from Grease is actually called 'Summer Nights'.

Sneaker Pimps, 6 Underground

Today's Transcript:

'No Diggity' was a hit in 1996, the same year that the Euros were held in England. England is the venue for this year's Olympics, and we hope to meet more of Britain's athletes in the coming months. 'Months' sounds like 'mumos', which is a disease that is bad news if you're a grown-up, especially if you're a man. Mann is a rapper from Califoria, whose real name is actuall Dijon, like the mustard. If you remove the first letter of 'mustard' and replace it with a 'C' you get 'custard', which is what I had on my apple crumble on Sunday. Sunday is a day of rest, unless you work for the church. Church, first name Charlotte, has two kids with Gavin Henson. Gavin Henson shares the same surname as Jim Henson, who invented the Muppets. The Muppets' new film is out on Friday. If you think that the week starts on a Sunday then Friday is day number 6, which links to Sneaker Pimps and '6 Underground'.

The Killers, All These Things That I've Done

Today's Transcript:

The underground in London is known to most people as the tube. 'The Tube' was also a music show presented by Jools Holland and Paula Yates. Paula Yates was the other half of Bob Geldof and then of Michael Hutchence of INXS. The INXS hit 'Need You Tonight' was sampled by Professor Green. Professor Green is one of the stars performing at this year's Hackney Weekend. Hackney is home to Trevor Nelson, who knows his music. 'Music' was the title of a hit by Madonna, who performed last week at the Superbowl along with MIA. MIA's hit 'Paper Planes' featured on the soundtrack to the film 'Slumdog Millionaire', which was directed by Danny Boyle. Danny Boyle shares the same surname as Susan Boyle. Susan Boyle is a protege of Simon Cowell, who spends much of his time in America. America is where The Killers are from, which links to The Killers and 'All These Things That I've Done'.

Jamiroquai, Too Young To Die

Today's Transcript:

The Killers are from Las Vegas, which is a gambling capital. Capital letters are what are found at the front of words. 'Words' rhymes with 'birds', which are feathered animals that tend to live in trees. Trees are major producers of oxygen, which is good for the environment. The environment is the concern of people who are considered to be green. Green is the colour that you'd associate with frogs. Frogs are amphibians, which means they are as happy on land as in the water. Water is what makes up most of the planet, and there are many planets in space. Space is what people desire when they move to a bigger house. 'House' is the American series that stars Hugh Laurie. A lorry is what the Americans call a truck. A truck is used to transport equipment for gigs for bands like Jamiroquai, which links to Jamiroquai and 'Too Young To Die'.

Flaws:

Frogs are not always green, but otherwise seamless.

Snoop Doggy Dogg, What's My Name

Today's Transcript:

'Die' is either the plural or singular of the word 'dice', which are a crucial part of most boardgames. Boardgames are a good thing to get out at Christmas, when the whole family is sat around the table. Tables normally come with a selection of chairs. Chairs are what you sit on through the interface of the chair's surface and your bottom. 'Bottom' was a TV show starring Ade Edmonson, the theme tune to which used to also be the theme tune to this feature. 'Feature' is a word that often precedes 'films', which are what you go to see at the cinema. At the cinema they sell loads of noisy foods such as popcorn and nachos. Nachos are normally served with cheese and some kind of spicy dip. 'Dip' rhymes with 'tip', which is what you'd hope for before you get to the bookies to bet on the dogs. Dogs in the world of hip-hop don't get much bigger than Snoop Dogg, which links to Snoop Dogg and 'What's My Name'.

Flaws:

Die is the singular form, dice the plural. Also it was a remix of the Bottom theme tune that used to be the Tedious theme, but that's a technicality.

Blur, Parklife

Today's Transcript:

Snoop Dogg performed at Glastonbury a few years ago, which is a festival that isn't happening this year. One thing that is happening this year is Radio 1's Hackney Weekend. Hackney carriage is an old term for a taxi, and I think there is a law that says you have to carry a bale of hay in the boot of your Hackney carriage, which obviously goes back to the days when they were powered by horses and not diesel. Diesel tends to smell if you get it on your hands while filling up, which is why they have those plastic gloves by the pump. 'Pump' was an album by Aerosmith, featuring the classic song 'Love In An Elevator'. An elevator is what the Americans call a lift. 'Lift' rhymes with 'sift', which is what you'd have to do through your rubbish if you'd accidentally thrown your car keys in the bin. 'Bin' is a word that is often preceded by 'wheelie'. A wheelie is what you can do on your bike when riding in the park, which links to Blur and 'Parklife'.

Flaws:

Regarding the law about Hackney carriages carrying a bale of hay; I found several sources online repeating this 'fact', however, The London Vintage Taxi Association website states: "It has never been law for a motor cabman to carry a bale of hay in his cab. In fact, it was never law for a horse cabman to carry one, although he was required to carry sufficient hard food (e. g. oats) for his horse’s midday feed."

Shed Seven, Chasing Rainbows

Today's Transcript:

The start of Blur's set at the Brits resulted in an awkward moment with Adele last night. Night follows day, and 'day' rhymes with 'hay', which is what guinea pigs use instead of a blanket. a blanket is what you're advised to have in your car in case you break down in snowy or icy conditions and get stuck. Stuck is what you'd want things to be if you'd covered them in glue. The manufacture of glue has something to do with horses. Horses used to be the only form of transport. Transport is crucial if you're running a business. Businesspeople tend to wear suits, unlike us who wear jeans to work. 'Work' rhymes with 'perk', which is another word for a bonus. Today's musical bonus is a birthday treat for chris Moyles, which links to Shed Seven and 'Chasing Rainbows'.

Flaws:

The connective tissue of horses, amongst other animals, is indeed used to make glue, although animal glue is only used sparsely in industrial work these days. However, horses were never the 'only form of transport', as people have pretty much always had legs to walk with. There are also many modern businesses, such as internet companies, that neither rely heavily on transport nor require employees to wear suits.

Reel 2 Real & The Mad Stuntman, I Like To Move It

Today's Transcript:

Rainbows are sunlight refracting through water droplets in the air that causes a kind of prism effect where the colour spectrum is separated. Separate is the opposite of together, and 'Together Forever' was a hit for Rick Astley, who has a real problem with Lent. 'Lent' rhymes with 'bent', as in Marcus Bent, who used to go out with Gemma Atkinson, who was in 'Hollyoaks'. 'Hollyoaks' is set in Chester, which the Romans used to call Deva. Diva is a term for a difficult or demanding performer, like Mariah Carey or Tina. Tina shares the same first name as Tina Arena, while arena gigs are what Olly Murs must be getting used to on his current tour. When you're on tour you have to get used to spending a lot of time sitting in the back of a bus. A bus that has two levels of seating is known as a double-decker bus. If a double-decker bus was blocking your driveway and you asked the friendly driver to move it he would probably say "I like to move it", which links to Reel 2 Reel and 'I Like To Move It'.

Flaws:

Skee-Lo - I Wish

Today's Transcript:

Reel 2 Reel featured the vocal talents of the Mad Stuntman, and I'd imagine most stuntmen are a bit mad. 'Mad' was a hit for Ne-Yo, whose real name is Shaffer Smith, and shares the same surname as Paul Smith the fashion designer. Fashion employs many models, who strut their stuff on the catwalk. 'Walk' is what you see written in green on pedestrian crossings in the States when it's safe to cross. A safe is what banks have to keep all the money in, and you also find mini safes in the wardrobes of hotel rooms. Hotel rooms tend to look the same wherever you are in the world. The World Series in baseball doesn't actually include the world, and is just contested by teams in the USA. The USA has as its President Barack Obama, and his wife is called Michelle. if asked during the presidential race whether she wanted her husband to win, Michelle Obama would probably have said "I wish", which links to Skee-Lo and 'I Wish'.

Flaws:

Banks keep the money in a vault rather than a safe. Also, the World Series includes teams from Canada as well as the US, and in fact has been won twice by the Toronto Blue Jays.
