It's Time To Party

Album: I Get Wet (2001)

Songfacts®:

  • This was used in a commercial for Expedia. In this commercial, parents are planning a vacation without their teenage son. Then, they imagine him throwing a house party while they're gone. During the house party sequence, this song is playing.
  • One of many songs Andrew gave to the advertising company, he was pleased with how it was used in the commercial. He especially liked how the kids were singing along. The royalty checks didn't hurt either.
  • This was also used in a commercial for Coors, a beer company.
  • The cover of the album shows Andrew with blood streaming down his nose. Some of the blood is his, which he got by hitting himself with a brick. The rest of the blood is pig's blood that he got from a local butcher. He really is a lot smarter than he sounds.
