The Maytag Man Says “It’s Gonna Be Maytag”

The date is April 30th, which means that it’s about time for one of the Internet’s favorite memes: It’s Gonna Be May. Now, Maytag gets in on the fun with their new ad. We hear NSync’s “It’s Gonna Be Me” as we see Maytag Men being constructed in something of an homage to NSync’s video. But of course, the “Me” in the hook is replaced by a “Maytag”, and it’s a promo for Maytag Month. I’m surprised this one didn’t come out a while ago, as the meme isn’t new. Is it clever, or does it officially kill the “It’s Gonna Be May” meme? If you watch “It’s Gonna Be Me” on YouTube, fully expect this to be the preroll ad.

Tuesday Throwback: The Chili’s Baby Back Ribs Jingle

If you’re of a certain age and someone mentions Chili’s Baby Back Ribs, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll think of the classic jingle, introduced all the way back in 1986. The jingle was brought back in 2017, but with far less ubiquity, and emphasizing Chili’s other offerings too. I can’t find the original, but here’s an early-2000s version with NSYNC. And also here’s a video with the guy (appropriately named Guy Bommarito) who wrote the jingle. Interestingly enough, Guy Bommarito has never eaten one.
