The nostalgic ice cream truck sound has been reinvented for a new generation thanks to a collaboration between Good Humor and The RZA—the legendary music producer and founder of the Wu-Tang Clan. As of this month, a brand-new ice cream truck jingle is available to ice cream trucks nationwide. While ice cream lovers of all ages know the tune of 'Turkey in the Straw,' people may not be aware of the origins of the song and Good Humor is on a mission to educate drivers and fans, and help the ice cream truck industry remove it from use.
To create a fresh new jingle, The RZA drew inspiration from his own childhood memories of chasing after the ice cream truck in his neighborhood and fused traditional ice cream truck music with elements from jazz and hip-hop.
