From Whoomp, There it is! to Geico Sprinkles | with Musician/Actor DC Glenn | #18
In this episode of The Neutral Ground Podcast, I am incredibly excited to sit down with musician and actor DC "The Brain Supreme" Glenn. DC is one part of the musical group Tag Team. In 1993, they exploded onto the music scene with "Whoomp, There it is." To this day, it is physically impossible to sit still when that song is playing. Although I remember rocking that song back in 1993, the song later became a hit again when it was featured in the movie Elf with Will Ferrell. But, music is just one of the skills that DC shares with the world. In 2020, in the middle of a pandemic that was eroding our sense of connection with each other, Geico came out with a commercial featuring a lovely mother figure making dinner, when Tag Team appears in the kitchen to sing a song about ice cream. (Are you singing the song in your head as I type this? Me too.) This commercial would go on to become one of Geico's most popular commercials--and arguably the best commercial of the year. It was positive, high energy, and just made you feel like smiling again. At the end of the commercial, DC yells, "sprinkles!" and the rest is history. Although DC is an amazing entertainer, we talk a lot about life in this episode. How do we stay motivated? How do we impose order on chaos? If you're looking for a fun conversation with some motivation and laughter, this is the one for you.
