I'm testing a theory that Victor Fleming's masterpiece "The Wizard of Oz" is so woven into popular culture that someone or something makes reference to it at least once every day. It comes up in conversations, songs, TV shows, ads, other films, colloquial saying, etc. For one year I'll be updating this blog each time Oz comes up. Check back daily to see if the theory holds water, or melts in it. (And try it yourself. You'll start to notice Oz everywhere, I promise.)

Two days in a row. Saw a brand new commercial for "Wicked" in Chicago. Boy, it looks iffy, to say the least.

The commercial opens with the Good Witch (presumably) singing about being popular. It gave me chills. Not the good kind.

Has anyone seen it? Is it as bad as I think?
