Why are we here?

To talk about the crazy, insane, wonderful video by Mia entitled The Stanley Steemer Variations (by Mia). This extravaganza appeared out of nowhere last week on YouTube, and has entertained, amused, shocked, confounded, tantalized, and even raised suspicion among tens of thousands of viewers in the online community.

Everyone knows the jingle, but no one has seen it like this before! ryanseacrest.com

Carpet cleaning just got young and sexy…

Genius! So thoughtfully put together and well executed, you can’t stop watching her to see what she’ll come up with next. Oh yeah, and her voice, it’s out of this world.


Take one commercial jingle and turn it into jazz, opera, hip-hop, Latin, Soul and every other kind of music… fun!

Mr. Steemer, I hope you’re standing near a 1-800-MATTRESS.

This video will brighten your day!

This is absolutely AMAZING! I cannot even get over this, it’s incredible.

Versatility is underrated.

If you’re like me you catch yourself singing commercials, and then feel stupid, if anyone was in earshot.  Well this girl has taken it to higher level…

At a time when America is divided, we can take solace in knowing that there exist timeless ideals that bring us all together as Americans. Among these are the American flag, bald eagles, Jack Daniels, and of course: the Stanley Steamer. Rock on Mia!!


Wow. I will literally hear this song in my dreams…and nightmares from now on.

I think S.S. owes someone a big, fat check!

This is sick and fierce!! Yes, Mia!


Mesmerizing…

I watched the first 4 or 5 with my hands over my open mouth before I laughed. janelle: just your regular everyday dream girl

We are very impressed with singer Mia Gentile, who’s just taken the time and trouble to rework a popular US ad jingle while showcasing every musical style possible. Watch the video and you’ll soon be singing along with her – even if, like us, you’d never heard of Stanley Steemer before. huffingtonpost.co.uk

This insane Cinci grad who does bonkers renditions of the Stanley Steemer jingle is my new favorite.

We think this young lady is trying to sell us something, but with the clash of a dozen musical styles and outfits, it’s so hard to keep track.

Advertising jingles are one of the banes of life, teaching you how to hate as they earworm your mind and and refuse to leave it. But Mia Gentile has done the impossible and made the Stanley Steemer jingle tolerable–for that she should win a Nobel.

She does everything from Taylor Swift, Norah Jones (I think), Avril Lavigne, and Lady Gaga (again, not sure). But I can’t complain because I prefer this to the original commercial, with the creepy balding CGI man floating around a living room.
I think we should all take this video as proof that any commercial with an annoyingly catchy jingle is dangerous. It invades our lives, enters our brains, and deteriorates our sanity.

Girl Covers Stanley Steemer Commercial Jingle In Nearly Every Music Genre
If you live in a large metropolitan area in America, there’s a very good chance you have heard the catchy Stanley Steemer commercial jingle

Mia Gentile definitely has. She’s heard the song so many times, she’s ready for something new. So she took the catchy ad tune, and covered it in countless variations, styles, and genres, from rock, to opera, to 50′s, to punk. 

Not only does she have an amazing voice, and tons of talent, but, gosh, does this girl have some serious fashion sense as each variation has its own matching outfit.

New York City-based artist Mia Gentile created a fun video for the jingle of Stanley Steemer, the nation’s largest deep cleaning service. She wonderfully covers the jingle in a long list of musical styles (it must have taken a long time to make!). She says on her blog that she is “not affiliated in any way with the company Stanley Steemer,” that it is not a “viral marketing campaign,” and that she “sang all the vocals.”

    So if you look at her channel and her blog all she does is talk about this video and how much of a sensation it’s become (even though it hasn’t really at 150,000 views). That’s a very corporate-esque tactic: acting like there’s buzz about something there isn’t.

    Not saying I don’t like the video, but they’re trying way too hard to make it sound like it’s already gone viral, and it’s really fake how they pretend this girl is just some person making home videos.

    Considering those things, and the fact that it was clearly lip synced to a studio recording, and the fact that the youtube account is only a few months old, I think it’s not very well hidden that this is an over-reaching marketing campaign by Stanley Steamer.

    Otherwise, this is some poor person who appeared out of nowhere, made one cool video, and then proceeded to blog and vlog about it (and nothing else) for several months.

    It’s a neat video, but probably for nefarious reasons.

    What is the gender next to the spanish version? I’m very very curious about it

      Hey, meowxi! The genre of music after the Latina Chica is a Lady Gaga inspired electronic/pop. Although it is certainly open to interpretation! 😉
