Lunch Video: Nobody Bothers Me

Some of your D.C. old-timers will remember this commercial. So Awesome.

An interesting bit of trivia that you probably don’t know. The dude that penned this jingle, Nils Lofgren, was also a member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and was also part of Neil Young’s band. Clearly this jingle is his best work.

    Some would argue “Bullets Fever” was better, but “Nobody Bothers Me” stood the test of time, plus was broadcasts on DC UHF channels 100 times a day for 14 years.

    I thought of this ad immediately when you posted the 1970s commercial last week.

    A true test of a child of 1980s Washington is singing the first part of this song and joining in on the rest.
