Props to Nickelback for spoofing their own “Photograph” for a Google Photos commercial

Nickelback has endured an unfair amount of abuse (in my opinion, anyway) but at least they have a sense of humour about it.

When Google’s ad agency approached them about using their song “Photograph” in a commercial for Google Photos, they figured “Why not? Let’s have some fun with this.” So they did. And good for them. (Plus they probably made a sh*tload of cash for doing it.)

If you want the lyrics, here they are.

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh

Must have shot a million more
Of my dessert but I don’t know what for

And this is where we come from
These matching suits are looking pretty dumb

Falling down the photo rabbit hole
Is it my hair or just a ramen bowl.

Oooohh, my eyeeees

Every memory regretting all my hair styles
If you wove it all together, it would go for miles
It’s hard to braid it, time to shave it.
Good-bye / Highlights

Every memory we never have to look for
They no longer have to spread out on the bedroom floor
It’s time to say it, gotta say it
Good times, Good times

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh

Every time I do it makes me…
