Slide to the left, slide to the right… slide to McDonald’s?

Everybody clap your hands! I love how McDonald’s decided to use The Cha Cha Slide in one of its Happy Meal commercials. I think it’s great. In fact, I’m lovin’ it.

Originally developed and recorded by DJ Casper in 1996 for Bally’s Total Fitness,The Cha Cha Slide Part 2 by Mr. C The Slide Man (aka DJ Casper) Featuring The Platinum Band was recorded later. Because in part 2, they felt the desire to get funky. You can practically taste the funk as this kid eats his apple slices in the aforementioned Happy Meal commercial:

The Cha Cha Slide Part 2 itself has provided some serious line-dancing action in clubs, at weddings, proms, and parties across the U.S. and beyond. Better watch the video now, or you’ll look like a jackass at your niece’s Super Sweet 16 party.

  1. Hi! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  2. I think what you posted was very reasonable. However, think about
    this, what if you were to create a awesome headline?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however
    what if you added a title to possibly grab folk’s attention?

    | SONGSPEAK is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and
    watch how they create post titles to grab people to click.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve
    written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
