    it is si corny it's good


    It seems to me that this expression comes from an ad. Here is some more context.

    Fantastic Fountain (title) - it is about the Font MÓgica in Barcelona

    An expectant crowd gathers and, suddenly, a strange and colorful spectacle takes place on the terraces below.
    La Font MÓgica is so corny it's good.

    Please, give me some hints about the underlying idea!

    Re: it is si corny it's good

    It is an interesting reversion of concept - that something is so bad that it can be regarded as good. In this case, the presentation is lacking originality but at the same time it catches the attention.
