The Countrywide Rap

Countrywide's reputation is in the toilet, so Bank of America is flushing that name forever. The company will now be called Bank of America Home Loans. But if you need a good scream, you can still watch the old "Countrywide Can" ads on Youtube. I can't remember a more infuriating campaign, especially in hindsight. Somebody made a very catchy rap song about it. A sample of the lyrics:

No money, no worry, refinance and get cash out in a hurry. Need to refi man.

So if you need to get a loan, you're not alooone. Pick up the phone. Call Countrywide and welcome home.

Man, I love recession art.
