Where’d The Cheese Go?

I was reading the Wiki entry for Ween and came across this awesome story. You’ve probably heard it already. But it’s new to me.

Once upon a time, an advertising agency wanted a new hip jingle for a new product from Pizza Hut that tucked cheese into the outer crust of the pizza. They looked to Mr. Freeman Mr. Melchiondo of Ween to do the job. The boys came up with what is in the following YouTube video as part one.

Pizza Hut passed, or, as the Wiki put it, “It epitomized Ween-style irreverence but did not appeal to the agency, and Pizza Hut rejected several versions of the song outright.” So the boys went back to the drawing board (part two).

Compare and contrast.

I like Ween.
