Pop history gets better at Philips

Electronics giant Philips has been caught tampering with pop history. The Dutch behemoth recently introduced a version of the Beatles classic “Getting better” for its call waiting music.

Electronics giant Philips has been caught tampering with pop history.

The Dutch behemoth recently introduced a version of the Beatles classic “Getting better” for its call waiting music. This tied in nicely with the company’s “Let’s make things better” catchline.

There just seems to be a line missing from the new version. As all buffs know, the original, “It’s getting better all the time” is followed by “It couldn’t get much worse…”

For some reason this doesn’t feature in the Philips reworking.
