There’s a new commercial for Taco Bell, featuring their new Pina Colada Fruitista Freeze, that showcases the very essence of songspeak. The commercial utilizes the 70’s classic Escape (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes. The pure genius of this commercial is that it features regular people singing about their day to the tune of the song.
I think my favorite part is when the douchebag boss sings “ba ba bow ba ba bow”, fistbumps his employee, then blows it up.
After McDonald’s and Burger King’s latest efforts, the fast food commercial has become a whole new bag of potatoes. Congrats, Taco Bell, on stepping up your game and bringing the commercial songspeak to a whole new level.
