Tag Team Receives a Second Wind With GEICO Commercial
In 1993, I was in Meridian, and one of the biggest records that year was Tag Team's Whoomp! (There It Is). From the radio to the club, this song was known around the world. Fast-forward to almost thirty years later, and they are back like they never left.
If you haven't seen the new GEICO commercial featuring Tag Team, you don't know what you are missing. While the clip is under sixty seconds, the excitement in the parents' faces and embarrassment in their daughters was priceless.
I have to give props to GEICO, as they have truly changed the game and brought out some of the most hilarious and memorable commercials in the industry. What's even more fascinating is that there is a new generation of people who are literally looking them up to see who Tag Team is.
Steve Rollin and DC are back like they never left. I remember seeing them in concert back in my hometown, and they had the entire audience of the Temple Theater on their feet that night. If you need a reminder of the classic song, you know I had to dig it up for you.
