Now, if you can listen to that jingle and not have it get stuck in your head, I envy you. My youngest grandson sings this NON STOP and I can’t help but find it hilarious. He’s also getting really good at using it when maybe testing certain boundaries and then I can’t help but crack up but that’s a whole nother post.
This was on Good Question right after a night of Christopher singing this jingle and it was the same jingle they were using in the story. What makes jingles so catchy? It pretty much says they want jingles to be simple enough for a toddler to be able to sing them. They want them easy enough to remember as a nursery rhyme. What they don’t want is for them to be used “too” often. They don’t want people to hate the commercial or have it get to obnoxious.
They also said very good jingles can stick with us for decades. Off the top of my head I can think of “Clap on..clap off…the clapper. “Hold the pickles hold the lettuce special orders don’t upset us.” “Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.” I can also sing off a lot of them for small business’s around here.
One night last week I actually woke up in the middle of the night singing “give me that fillet o fish, give me that fish!”
What about you guys? What jingles get stuck in your head and how many can you remember?
