The Lyrics

Inspired from the 2022 Dish Network commercial, “When You Really Need TV”.
That’s Dish Network, a cable TV thing,
For when you really need TV,
Dish Network; many shows it will bring,
For a child’s birthday party,

Five children just walked into the door,
A sugar free cake you can’t miss,
Dish Network has kids shows, sports & more,
That’s why we made the switch to Dish!

Remember, that with DIRECTV,
We couldn’t get signals at all!
Dish Network came yesterday, you see,
We got it just in time for fall!

Dish Network, it’s great, this news I’ll share,
Beneath our humble roof above,
Dish Network, it shows our friends we care,
So let’s give thanks for Dish Network!

The greatest advertisement in television history.

That’s for sure...

“When You Really Need TV” (September 1, 2022-December 31, 2029) is, I believe, the greatest television advertisement that DISH Network has ever put out, despite the fact that iSpot refuses to add an actual description for it.

Surely this Dish Network ad was a contender for “Worst Commercial of 2022” (or was it the greatest? I can never tell.) No, but really: thank you to everyone on this site for putting up with my parodies this past year, and when I later passed the torch of writing about an unnamed television broadcast. In a way, they even managed to change the trajectory of where this site’s path was. I wish you all a happy new year, and that your New Year’s resolutions last a lifetime. The end.
