“This was a surprise because it was never intended to be a hit single. It’s from the album Poodle Hat, on which I had the song Couch Potato, my Eminem parody – that’s the one I thought would be a hit.
“We didn’t do a video for Couch Potato, on Eminem’s request. Meanwhile, the eBay song really caught on and went viral; it’s been one of my most downloaded songs on iTunes.
“I was going to shoot a video for eBay, but right at the same time, eBay started doing all of these commercials with song parodies. I think they did Frank Sinatra’s My Way as ‘I did it eeee-Bayyyyyy.’ I didn’t want my parody to come off as a commercial for eBay. In retrospect, I probably should have done a video because it would have been one of my biggest hits.”
