This 1962 jingle, written by Richard Trentlage, comes with a personal story. When my wife was pregnant with our firstborn, I mentioned that if it were a boy I’d like to honor my Grandpa Oscar. She looked at me in amazement, and said, “Really? We can’t let our child go through life being bullied with “Oscar Mayer Veaner”!
I told this to my mother, who told her sister Isobel. Isobel loved it, and she told it to anyone who would listen. My great-aunt Janet lived with my grandparents, Oscar and Mary. Isobel told the story to Aunt Janet, “ho ho ho-ing” for emphasis at the punchline, but Janet just looked at her blankly. “Who is the ‘Mayer’ after?” she said. I was inspired to make this video by my friend Paul Kempkes' rendition of the Beef-a-Roni song.
