Inspired by a true incident of melted ice cream. THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY.

 

Got a drippin’ melty cone, daddy?

Cone Caddy! today.



Looking for feedback on

I assume some people used to tape episodes of Jeopardy on VHS. Weird, but that's totally fine. I love Jeopardy. Does this sound enough like it was produced entirely in the company's North or South Shore office in 1995 with a consumer-grade camcorder, a nephew who knew how to use Avid and was willing to work for free, a box of Joe, and the company owner who insisted he star in the ad, but isn't a strong reader? Going for the VHS kept in a box in a non-climate-controlled environment and recovered a quarter century later vibe.

This is truly spectacular and also extremely catchy. If I could get a cone caddy, I would, because I’ve been humming this tune all over the place. Is the correct phrasing “gotta dip bip dop dip cone caddy”? Just wanna make sure I’m getting it right.

summah is truly here

Holy shit. Is this you speaking?! I feel like I was transported back in time. The vibe is PERFECT. Also, I admire your dedication to the prompt by changing your picture.

Definitely reminds me of all the local ads on tv when I lived in Quincy.

Ben August 19, 2020 5:21pm

It is me speaking! With one of my favorite varieties of Boston accent. And some messing around with pitch and formants.
