This is a video of the recording of Chili’s enjoy-having-it-stuck-in-your-head-all-day ‘Baby Back Ribs’ jingle. Some more info while I demand my dogs treat me to Chili’s take-out for dinner tonight since it’s Father’s Day weekend. They’ll refuse, and I’ll be drunkenly burning Totino’s Pizza Rolls in the oven by 8PM:
Singer Alvin Chea of the a capella band Take 6, shared original footage of himself (“I want my baby back, baby back”), Louis Price of The Temptations (“barbecue sauce”), and Willie McCoy aka Wolf Johnson (bass) performing the tasty iconic jingle for Chili’s Baby Back Ribs. After the first take, a lively discussion took place about how to say “barbecue sauce”.
Surprisingly, apparently the creator of the jingle, advertising creative director Guy Bommarito, was actually worried the song would be considered his greatest achievement in life. Ha! Like a mere mortal could even dream of achieving anything greater without inventing the time machine or free energy. Get real, ‘Baby Back’ Bommarito!
Keep going for the jingle, and an interview with Guy.
