They shoulda rejected it for the Barry Manilow.

Or the Chopin. I’m going to lose my Mantown Courtesy Card™ for knowing this, but another thing about that *banned* Lane Bryant ad: The background track Chopin Prelude in C Minor, is the basis for the melody of a Barry Manilow hit. I am so sorry for letting you know that, I really am, but, blame Top 40 during the 70s. Regardless, it is ironic that the network that brought you the Milf-Cougar hybrid show Desperate Housewives would object to another take on the afternoon delight theme. LOOK AT ME WITH A TWO SONGS FROM HELL REFERENCE! At least the brand learned something from GoDaddy and played it up.
