Before I begin, let me say Nicki Minaj’s use of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” is untouchable. I will never say otherwise. As far as I'm concerned, summer 2014 belongs to "Anaconda." However, there is a parody of the ‘90s tribute to ample buttocks (Buttockses? Buttocksii?) that is truly remarkable. A parody of “Baby Got Back” that deserves our full attention. Said parody is featured in a Romano’s Macaroni Grill TV spot. “I Like Big Crusts,” which is set to the unmistakable tune of the Sir Mix-A-Lot hip-hop classic, is a song about flatbread pizzas. Excuse me. It’s about Fatbread pizzas. Romano’s Macaroni Grill sells Fatbreads, and the crusts are big. The crusts are big and Romano's Macaroni Grill cannot lie.
If you guessed I rewound and re-watched the commercial seven times in a row the first time I saw it, your guess is wrong. I rewound and re-watched it eight times. What can I say? I'm a sucker for popular dining establishments parodying hit songs from the late ‘80s/early ‘90s in ad campaigns. Also, I'm a sucker for these lyrics:
I like big crusts and I cannot lieOther crust lovers can't denyWhen a Fatbread comes out with a big bubble crust and fillings piled highI get STUFFED
