Remember McDonalds' shameful Devo rip-offery? Please turn your attention to Hasbro, and the correct way to infuse Devo into children's products. It's Tooth Tunes, where the wacky New Wavers join the ranks of Hannah Montana, the Transformers theme song, Hilary Duff, Smash Mouth and other hygienically-sound, prepubescent-safe superstars.
Find a sample of "Brush It!" and its highly apropos lyrics here.
In the event that the musical toothbrush concept doesn't spell itself out immediately, Hasbro has provided an illustrated diagram of music notes infiltrating a child's brain through his teeth. Totally. Awesome.
