Viral Video of the Day: Jon Lajoie Wants You to 'Please Use This Song'

The YouTube sensation is back—and he needs the money.

While some recording artists bristle at their music being used for commercials, Jon Lajoie is pleading advertisers to license his latest song.

In the new video, ‘Please Use This Song,’ the YouTube comedian and co-star of FXX’s The League begs potential brands— “I need the money/so use this song to sell something”—and demonstrates how they can with parody ads for everything from sports drinks to life insurance.

Hey, if Sara Bareilles can do it, why not Jon LaJoie?
