    Savage Garden's Truly Madly Deeply is one of Australia's most-beloved songs, but that doesn't mean advertisers haven't had a crack at turning it into a jingle to sell food delivery.

    Darren shared the lyrics and wrote on Twitter, "If you knew how much money I turn down and how hard I fight to protect your high school memories...", with lines such as "I want to stand with you on food mountain" living in our head rent-free from this moment forward.
