‘Bridesmaids’ Bringing Back Wilson Phillips… Finally

As if it weren’t enough that the new movie Bridesmaids is six kinds of hilarious, the movie is giving a boost to Wilson Phillips and their 90s musical masterpiece “Hold On.”

Nielsen Soundscan says the song has risen 620 percent in sales and one of the band’s managers says requests for Wilson Phillips have been pouring in. Band member Carnie Wilson credits the band’s publicist Lizzie Grubman for getting them in the movie.

The film continued its box office winning streak this week, not only coming in second (behind the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film), but only slipping by 20 percent in ticket sales from the first week, a great thing for a movie.

We’ve got the old music video after the jump, which is so phenomenal it goes from the beach to the mountains with its powerful messaging of holding on and breaking free. Moreover, because I love music that appears in comedies, we have a Monday “afternoon delight”:  an Anchorman bonus is also attached.
