FnkyTwn: It's true that the song is from an early (1969) Sesame Street (obviously the original is Italian), but it was used in an incredibly popular Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper commercial in a national ad campaign in 2007, and that's when it really caught on. I'm old, and I grew up on Jim Henson, but even I don't remember the Sesame or Muppet incarnations of the song. The Dr. Pepper commercial though was hilarious, but the last time I went looking for where I heard the song 'recently' it only turned up the originals.TLDR: Here's how most people know the song
Bucky Katt: I must be thick. I don't get the joke in the headline.
cameroncrazy1984: This headline. This headline could win the whole thing. Brilliant.

FnkyTwn: Oreamnos:By "most people" maybe you mean "most people who were under 20 at the time". I personally knew the song from a version on an LP by the Boston Pops under Arthur Fiedler, which is a great arrangement BTW. The original LP ("Arthur Fiedler Super Star") hasn't been released on CD that I know of, but there is a a compilation release that includes it. I identify this recording more than the Muppets as "my version" of the tune.No, i'm pushing 40 and I remember it in 2007 quite clearly. But it was everywhere as a pop reference right after that commercial came out, so either this thread attracted all the 42+ somethings on Fark.. or you're all simply misremembering. It was on Sesame Street in 1969... so if you were born in 1965 then yeah, you probably remember it I guess.
