Jaysus, They've Written A Song About My Airline

So there I was, looking about on the Youtube for somethin' to watch and I come across this bloody video, and they're singing a song called "Cheap Flights"  Well, I'm tellin' ya, I don't care what those gobshites say, this feckin' songs about me.

And if there's any doubt that this song is about O'Leary Airs cheap, no frills flights, just wait for the chorus. Christ Almighty, it's like these feckers have read my blog.


And they've even been so kind as to put subtitles in the video for those of you who lack the refined ear that's required to understand the Irish accent.

 The song is  catchy too. This chorus will be just as stuck inside your head as you'd be if you didn't have the cash to pay to visit the loo on one of my flights. And after you listen to the whole (yes, whole) song, I wanna know "Should I call my legal team or is this just another opportunity for me to get free advertising for my airline?"

    1. Either way you know I'm gonna write a blog about it. If it's funnier to sue them, I'll do that...

  2. When they started singing "feckity feck feckity feck" and kept saying feck after that, it really made me think of your blog. I've never heard people weave "feck" and "shite" so beautifully since I watched Father Ted. I think you should take it as free advertising, you have to let people know it's about your airline though.

    1. The ability to say feck and make it sound like music is a gift. You just can't learn something like that, you're born to it.

  3. This is so amazing, I'm exactly with Mark that when feck was pulled out it was obvious to me that they'd gleaned this blog for inspiration. It's weird that I'm only half kidding here, it is eerily coincident haha, I loved the song anyway.

    Try and make a compromise with them. They allow you to use this for an advertisement for your imaginary airline and you'll keep the legal sharks from O'Leary airlines away from them haha!

    1. We both know who they're singing about now don't we. I found this by Googling myself. I've done this shite for so long even Lord Google can't tell me and Mick apart!!

    2. hahaha you googled yourself? I suppose one has to see what lord google is saying about them

    3. I did it so I could write a blog about what I found. It was hysterical, I'm going to post it sometime.

  4. LOL it's like they stole the words right from your mouth. Were you out getting drunk somewhere and gave them this idea, just not remembering it? Sue! Get that legal team going. For then a big battle will ensue and you'll get even more free advertising. But then you have to expect for people to steal, making people pay for the loo is unreal..lol

    1. If I can get Boeing to remove the loos for me, I'll be able to seat even more people on my planes. Hell, I might even make stand up like they do on the tube!

    1. It was free!! Some people love/hate the O'Leary's so much, they write songs about us!!

    2. not dirges and laments, me hopes :)

      Delete
    3. No dirges as some of us are still alive, but that could be the reason that some write laments.

  6. Fuck the cost, I'm just looking to get in on the mile high club.

  7. It's free in business class, but we charge for that in economy class.

  8. HA! That's great. Don't sue them. Take the publicity. If you sue them, they may not write another song about my train-o-horrors.
    I may be singing "feck shite feck shite feck shite arse" the rest of the day. Which could prove to be awkward at work.

    1. I'll just call a press conference, threaten to sue and get more free publicity. It's a win-win for my airline.

    and Yes, they most definetly read your blog. But what the hell! You got free advertising girl :) Go with it and way your sales sky rocket! haha

    1. I'll give them free tickets, but I'll charge them to breath the air!

    2. The tickets are free but if they wanna sit in seats charge them for that!

    1. Yes, go to Youtube and search "O'Leary Beds and Blowjobs" you'll see a vid announcing it there. I'm not kidding!!

    1. I love them. I found this one by accident on a Facebook page in France. I Googled myself and someone in France mentioned my spoofing on this page and had this video up. They got 1,000,000 hits. It was grand.

  14. It's obvious this song was made for you. You should claim all rights to this song my any means necessary...even if it means crashing one of your planes into the recording studio. Or you could just sue them but court proceedings are so boring...but then again, it always hurts to get hit in the wallet!

    1. I'm going with the free advert I think. But then again, it may be more fun to blog about a fake law suit!

      Delete
  15. That was too good! Had to laugh... but that's so you. Free advertising though, why sue? I don't think they're taking the idea from you, eh? Right? I think.. Sue 'em anyway!

    1. No, they're not getting the idea from me. It's from another real cheap, no frills airline. The one I'm always spoofing on here!!

      Delete
  16. I'm in agreement with both Gaping Mind and Working Dan. I say do a better version of the song yourself, your voice is SO much lovelier! Then, crash a plane into their recording studio...hmmm, that could be pricey though. Maybe just hurl a stink bomb in there instead?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The stink bomb is cheaper. I'll have Guido do it, then when that makes news I'll get more publicity for my cheap flights!!

      Delete
    2. Good call!! That's why your flights are so feckin' cheap - you're a frugal genius! (Can an American safely use the word feck?)

  17. Fecking funny, that is. Thanks for sharing this. I'm soon off to do some dishes, with a whole lot of feckity fecks dancing about my brain.

    Cheers.

  18. I used to read this comic/graphic novel called Preacher back in the early 2000's and one of the main characters was an Irish vampire named Cassidy who liked to drink and tear people to shreds in bar fights. Anywaaaays, he'd always say stuff like "Jaysis" and "Shite" and "Feck." I never thought I'd need to remember any of his slang...but now it comes in oh so handy. ha

    ReplyDelete
  19. That was hilarious! I'll be singing that refrain under my breath tomorrow at work. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. That was feckin' hilarious. Love how it built up momentum slowly. When they got to the "feck shite feck shite arse" line, I spit taked (took?) all over my monitor.

    I have no doubt you could pull off a version yourself. But can you do the dance?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Marvelous, I'm still concerned that I understood them perfectly and didn't need the subtitles. Still I think a lawsuit is in order, think of the extra publicity that would generate!

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is obviously serious copyright infringement madam! You should sue them ALL to oblivion!

    Though I like the video.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, sweet lord! Hilarious though it is, they better not have swiped it from you! Heads will roll! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Remember this one from when my old flat mate linked it, as true now as it was then.

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is brilliant and so true. But you know what's probably the funniest thing? That the ads on the bottom of your site are for cheap flights! I wonder if it can take me to a 50p flight!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hahahahah that's great!! I think you should claim rights to that song and start collecting royalties.

  27. Is that Irish rap Anne? Yo. Mum-Feckers?

    ReplyDelete
  28. OMG Anne I dont believe that you are so funny!!! and these.....too!nice lol

  29. The video these folks created is hilarious! Hopefully the chorus will push out an American pop song that got stuck in my mind the day before yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  30. New Zealand accent is a derivative of Irish accent, so I got what they sang, and it was pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I watched them live a month ago, they are fantastic! They got a soung called c.u.n.t.s which is about evading tax. I'd highly recommend catching them live.
