Janis Joplin and Chocolate

Being the chocaholic that I am, I sometimes haunt chocolate companies’ websites to see if some chocolate might pounce off the screen. So far, none of the chocolate companies have come up with a Eat-Cast!

Turns out though that Cadbury has a podcast. I didn’t quite get the Creme Egg connection and for a second thought may it had something to do with a talking Easter egg (creepy). The podcast however has to do with showbusiness and competitions. Well, the reason I really went there was because I am most intrigued by an advert that has a Janis Joplin (while in the Big Brother and the Holding Company) song track played to people sharing their chocolate. The song is Piece of my heart and the lyrics that they play to the advert are

I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on and take it,
Take another little piece of my heart now, baby!
Break another little bit of my heart now, darling, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Have a, have another little piece of my heart now, daddy daddy daddy,
You know you got it if it makes you feel good,
Yes indeed, whoaa.

One of my all time favourites, and all the more reason to go eat some chocolate. Adverts, I tell you. Joplin would have never thought that her wild-swan song would be used to sell chocolate. R.I.P Joplin.
