This is a joke, right?

An internet ad for the (cough, cough) band 1910 Fruitgum Company, specifically a CD (a CD!) entitled Golden Classics.

Oh, where do I begin to tell the story of one of the most blatant bubble gum (cough, cough) bands of all time?

Golden Classics? Yes, who can forget those wondrous songs, Simon Says; May I Take a Giant Step?; One, Two, Three, Red Light; and Sticky, Sticky?

Here’s Wikipedia on the (cough, cough) band:

What, you say, is bubble gum music? Simple. Men in their 20s singing songs aimed at underage girls.

The guilty parties included: The Archies; Tommy James and the Shondels; Ohio Express; and others.
