This was a song for which there was no escape. In January of 2000, MadTV was using it to still make Monica Lewinsky jokes. A super-clean version with completely different lyrics was playing on Radio Disney, and an executive at Warner Brothers decided to have him host a run of Saturday Morning cartoon specials called “Snow Jam.” I checked with Chris Macquarrie who confirmed seeing the same thing, assuring me it wasn’t a strange, inexplicable dream.
But the oughts were upon us. The nightmare was only just beginning.
Next: 2000 proves to be an eclectic year with an offer from Beck.
