Wendy's just hired somebody to do it because it's cheaper than paying the band. It's not too uncommon, Staples got somebody to do "Takin' Care of Business" a while back. I guess billionaire corporations are pretty budget conscience with their advertising.

On a similar note, did anyone see Taledega Nights and get really confused when they had "Paint it Black" in French. Not terrible, but still strange.
