Snickers Wins the Super Bowl!

The real competition at the Super Bowl is for the commercials, right? This Snickers ad is a hoot.

How Did Ca Plane Pour Moi End Up in So Many Movies?

posted by Nell Minow

How did a 1977 song in French by the Belgian singer Plastic Bertrand become a go-to for 21st century American movie soundtracks, from big studio films to quirky indies?

“Ça Plane Pour Moi” has appeared in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” and last week’s “We’ll Never Have Paris,” from “The Big Bang Theory’s” Simon Helburg. I first noticed it in “Ruby Sparks.” It’s also on the soundtrack of “Eurotrip,” “Beerfest,” “127 Hours,” and “Jackass 3.5,” as well as TV’s “Gossip Girl.” It was covered by Sonic Youth and Vampire Weekend, and by The Presidents of the United States, whose version was featured in a Pepsi commercial. Here’s the original version.

And here’s the Pepsi commercial.

The lyrics are nonsense words and the title is French slang for “it’s going well for me.” It’s going pretty well for Plastic Bertrand, nearly four decades after the song was released.

The Disney princesses have their first Latina member! Princess Elena of Avalor will make her debut in the Disney Channel series “Sofia the First” before starring in her own series on the Disney channel. Disney says she is “a confident and compassionate teenager in an enchanted fairytale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore.” Her voice will be provided by Dominican Republic-born Aimee Carrero of ABC Family’s Young & Hungry. I’m really looking forward to it.
