The Tender Crisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch

OK, I’m would have to update my list for grue’s favorite songs post. I was cursed this morning by not being able to get Burger King‘s newest jingle out of my head for a couple hours.

Now my misery seeks company.

This infectious song is actually a remake of an old hobo bluegrass tune called Big Rock Candy Mountain that depicts a dream life for a hobo (ever-empty boxcars, cigarettes that grow on trees , etc.). BK’s version has Hootie, Brooke Burke, the Dallas Cheerleading squad and, probably, countless pornstars with which I’m not particularly familiar.

My goal is to get everyone around me to not help but hum/whistle/sing it at one point, showing that they’ve also got this thing on auto-play in their head.

  1. I don’t know, man. Needs at least some pornstars to begin to compete.

    But just talking with bear, that song they use on the PSP ads is pretty catchy, whatever it is.

  2. Sorry, I listened to Burl Ives so much as a kid that I must’ve gotten innoculated against the style of music in that cloying Hootie/Burgerking jingle.

    Isn’t that ridiculous: a fly marrying a bumble bee?

  3. I don’t know… there’s just something about that eerie plastic-faced king that puts me off my feed.

    Or maybe it’s just the stomach flu.
