Steven Page turns a Barenaked Ladies lyric into a commercial payday

If you’re a Barenaked Ladies fan, you’ll know what happens at a show when the band gets to that part of “If I Had a Million Dollars” that goes

If I had a million dollars we wouldn’t have to eat Kraft dinner
(But we would eat Kraft dinner)
(Of course we would, we’d just eat more)
(And buy really expensive ketchups with it)
(That’s right, all the fanciest dijon ketchups, hmm)

For years, the stage would then be littered with Kraft Dinner. (The band appreciated when you took it out of the box first. Those corners on the cardboard boxes hurt.)

Now look what’s popped up on the innertubes. I’m surprised it took Kraft Dinner this long to come to their senses.

It’s no Big Bang Theory theme, but…
