How are we today, eh

Where does this phrase that we all use when we see that someone is not in a good mood? We tell you where the “how we are today, huh” came from.

How we talk

It all happened at the beginning of the new century, but the  phrase  is still on everyone's lips. If someone is in a  bad mood , obfuscated or on a bad day, there's never a need for anyone to say, “  How we are today, huh .” Where did that phrase come from?

The origin has to do, first, with a theme of  the Super Mice  that they baptized like this: “  How are we today, huh  .” His lyrics read something like this:

We're full, hard and even

that tomorrow will be the same

because last night is old.

One more lap, another safer lap

we're going to get dizzy.

How we are today, huh.

The greatest significance, however, was given by a series of  commercials  of an  aspirin  who used the curtain song. In the announcements, the protagonist faced an intense day of work and social activity  with the help of the pill . Advertising generated controversy because — let's say things as they  are — it promoted addictive consumption . The Anmat finally lifted it because the warnings didn't indicate what the drug was for.

All this did not prevent the phrase from being adhered to popular speech anyway. Even today,  almost 20 years later . The youngest, perhaps, don't even remember the commercial or the song. But it's a  phrase  that comes very well when we want to point out some little domesticated humor, using the plural to sympathize with the moment and not take out the accusing finger (saying, “How are you today, huh” would be much more aggressive, wouldn't it?).

Like who doesn't want the thing, we mention that altered mood and leave the phrase floating in the air so that whoever considers it right takes over.
