OK, this has been driving me nuts for years. Every time the NY1 weather report comes on, there’s a jingle in the background. And I SWEAR I know it from somewhere:
Then I was playing Super Mario Bros. 3 the other day – and I realized why I was having such severe deja vu:
I think we can all agree that NY1 has clearly stolen the post-boss-fight music from Super Mario III and used it to back their Weather On The Ones reports – AS IF WE WOULDN’T NOTICE.
For shame, NY1! Sadly, this revelation will most likely destroy NY1’s journalistic credibility and lead to the demise of the network, but that is the price you pay for lifting music from the Mushroom Kingdom.
