[SLYTs all the way down] One wonders why a late-80s fast food chain felt the need to have all their training videos
sung as middle-of-the-road hip hop and R&B songs.
Or to rip the backing track straight out of a Bobby Brown song
. Were workers so bored that they felt they needed to catch their attention? Did management feel it would make the videos speak to the young people
they were hiring? Or was it just to make phrases like "bowls for the dining room, and cups are to go" more memorable? Bonus footage of Wendy's founder Dave Thomas saying "best in the bidness" in this one
, which transitions weirdly into the music videos.
