A Ton Of Trader Joe’s Products Can Be Sung To The Tune Of “Eleanor Rigby” & Twitter Is Obsessed
In the series premiere of Better Call Saul (you know, the show about everyone's favorite slimy but handy lawyer in Breaking Bad? Of course you know), a pair of skateboarding twins try to scam people out of their money and briefly tussle with main character Saul Goodman. Ring a bell? No? It's only a brief scene anyway.
Well, that actor, Daniel Spenser Levine, now has a more important life purpose than just being a brief plot point in Goodman's rise to badass lawyer. No, Spenser Levine is far more useful now. He has uncovered a strange secret about Trader Joe's that we will take to the grave.
Regardless of how much of a fan you are of the song, it doesn't matter anymore — Spenser Levine has pointed out that many, not just a couple, but many Trader Joe's products have five syllables in their names. Just like the words "Eleanor Rigby."
Which means if you squint for long enough at the collection of items Spenser Levine compiled on a tweet, you'll start hearing the "Eleanor Rigby" tune when you read their names in your head. God help us.
Okay, for the unconverted out there, acquaint yourself with the song first:
Then see for yourself just how remarkably on point his observation is. Spenser Levine tweeted about ordinary, innocent products like "shelled edamame," or "5 cheese Greek spiral," or "cracker assortment," and "maple leaf cookies" weren't even safe, for god's sake.
He continued with the screenshots as more than a few people start catching on to the tune stuck in his head.
Spenser Levine's horrified and delighted followers tried to escape from this spell.
Some were in disbelief.
But the most important takeaway: people know what to do with their incredulity. Because then Spenser Levine's followers began posting their own photos of Trader Joe's lyrics — er, products.
@KellenCox got in on the game.
And @Philthevoid was aggg-onized at realizing his pita crackers were much more than that:
Bamba peanut snacks were not immune from Spenser Levine's observation:
Organic juice blend also fit, somehow.
This actually isn't the first time Spenser Levine has tweeted about the franchise. His Jan. 6 tweets were a sequel to the OG threads, which surfaced about three months ago on Oct. 7.
If anything, the man was dedicated to his art.
His followers weren't as enthusiastic back then, but in 2018, it appears people have been much, much more receptive.
This secret is a game changer, isn't it? What are the nihilistic implications of shopping at Trader Joe's going to be now? The Beatles song in question is pretty dark — lyrics like "all of the lonely people, where do they all come from?" is a question that never gets answered properly.
Now I really want to know — all of the product labels, where do they all come from?
Another eerie observation: in the song, Eleanor "picks up the rice" in verse one ... of all the references, it just had to be food.
And if this latest Rigby-related phenomenon is taking place in a grocery store of all places, then I really won't be able to sleep at night.
It seems the lonely people on Twitter have found a place where they belong — Trader Joe's, where infinite creative possibilities abound.
In the meantime, Spenser Levine promised his followers that he "can't and will never stop!!" It sounds like it could, scarily enough, be true.
