Detroit band wins FreeCreditScore.com contest

Share this article:

Maybe I'm crazy, but I really dug the FreeCreditReport.com band that so many other people apparently found annoying.

Those songs are so witty, so catchy.

And just today, as I read that Detroit band The Victorious Secrets had won a contest to become the new face of Experian's FreeCreditScore.com, I learn that the original band was lip-syncing songs written by a jingle writer.

Talk about a buzz kill!

The Victorious Secrets, however, are a real band (and they are catchy, too). But will they dress up like pirates or get stuck with a Zack Morris-style cell phone?
