Thats the stomach-churning challenge facing Josh Anderson, who has just written and recorded a new Alka-Seltzer jingle that, like the old one, features the line, Plop plop, fizz fizz. Oh, what a relief it is.
Anderson, a morning disc jockey in Greensboro, North Carolina, was dared to do it by his station manager, and managed to beat out hundreds of other aspiring Alka-Seltzer songwriters.
Although writing the plop song was fairly easy for Anderson it took about 20 minutes he said arranging it so a person could dance to it proved to be difficult.
Luckily, he brought some Alka-Seltzer to the recording session just in case.
No word on if Andersons jingle will be as popular as the original jingle which was written in 1953 by Paul Margulies, the father of actress Julianna Margulies but he admits hed like to hear John Mayer do a rendition of it.
