Description

The IT guy, Dave, runs through the office to where manager Collette is standing. She inquires, "Dave, why does Ed have his own color printer?" She's worried that it costs too much, but Dave and another employee Bob explain how it's inexpensive. However, they have an ulterior motive in giving Ed his own printer. They open the door for a moment, where Ed is laughing heartily. Collette has a blank stare on her face. "Strange."

[Bill] Karen - I began to doubt what I had written above until I found this passage from an article about "Lost sounds".

So are the riveting stories of legendary artists George Washington Johnson (the ex-slave whose "Laughing Song" was used briefly in a recent Xerox ad), Bert Williams (featured in PBS' Broadway documentary series), Charley Case (a vaudeville comic who was rumored to be "passing"), and dozens of others.

[Karen] I looked into the "laughing song" in this commerical, and it's definitely not from Don Giovanni(an opera I know pretty well) and it's not lifted from 'The Laughing Song' by George W Johnson, either. It's most likely a piece of music made expressly for this commercial, made to sound like an opera passage.
