Removing Guts from a Song

Well, the most recent emasculation of a song for advertising purposes that really annoys me is the use by Sara Lee, in a commercial for some of its desserts/baked goods, of the "Happy Happy Joy Joy" song made famous by "Ren and Stimpy."
The commercial ignores the hilarious, nasty commentary of the virtual Burl Ives-soundalike singer of the "original" song and only uses a syrupy chorus on the refrain, over and over and over ... Let's see some advertiser try to steal a "Family Guy" song and use it in a milquetoast advertisement.
