Video: 1980s Wendy's Employee Training Video Uses New Phenomenon Called 'Rap Music'
Over on the blog Eater, there's a thoroughly entertaining round-up of '80s/'90s Wendy's employee training videos. I clicked into the post expecting to see the most mindblowingly, tripped-out, amazing piece of employee-training material ever made. But no dice. So we offer it here.
This was made during an era when hip-hop was just breaking into the mainstream and corporations trying to leverage "coolness" threw raps into anything, usually to embarrassing effect.
Here, it's just trippy. I don't even know how this got made. I mean, there are burger patties with faces dancing on the grill, singing, "We start shrinking, when we hit that grill, you know we will." PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WATCH THIS.
