Frankie and Johnnie's Low Budget Furniture Commercial 2008-01-09 09:03:19

Furniture and Fried Chicken: Together at Last!

This commercial gets off to an unimpressive start — take a look at that rat hole they call a warehouse — and it only gets worse from there. "I say, I say, I say" are Frankie and Johnnie selling furniture, dance lessons, or fried chicken? Bad dancing belongs in every low-budget commercial, but I'm still trying to connect the dots between furniture and fried chicken— buy a couch, get a grease stain for free?

This is a great classic New Orleans commercial. I've been watching the Frankie and Johnnie commercials since I was a kid. Great stuff. I wonder what happened to the original special man though.

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE FURNITURE AND THE CHICKEN: The key word is piece. They are selling "7 piece" furniture sets, and if you were ordering some chicken you would ask for a "7 piece" with a biscuit. It still doesn't really belong in the commercial!

I could use me a nice Barco Lounger and a big bucket o' fried chicken to kick off 2008. Then I can sit and study those dance moves. "I say, I say!" :DANCE:

What's with the chicken? I'm so confused.

Wow the fried chicken really just comes out of nowhere, doesn't it?

Lol, great memories--a classic local New Orleans commercial. What's almost scarier is that one of the only changes that's occurred to these commercials in 20 years IS the addition of the chicken (that and the "special man" is now played by a far less scary actor).
