Originally called the Calumet Meat Company, in 1976 the company changed its name and became Moo & Oink. This Chicago-based grocery store chain and wholesaler was unknown to me until someone sent me the link to this wonderful low-budget commercial featuring people dancing in a cow and pig costume. I lived and worked in Chicago and never saw any of these stores or saw these commercials. How could this be!? I guess I needed to get out more, because this is some amazing stuff.
Who is your favorite Moo or Oink?
