Bust a Nut

Posted October 19, 1999 at 2:24 am 3 Comments

It looks as if I owe the Corn Nuts advertising executives an apology.  I was under the impression that they were unaware of the familiar meaning of the phrase “bust a nut”, and had unwittingly chosen this phrase as a slogan in a phenomenally stupid blunder.   As it turns out, the Corn Nuts advertising team is well aware of the meaning of the phrase, as evidenced by this clever radio jingle.

In case you can’t play the MP3, here’s an excerpt from the lyrics:

Go to your room and lock the door,
‘Cause when you try it once you’ll  wanna try it some more!
Size doesn’t matter and that’s a fact,
It might be small, but it’s a big impact!

Bust a nut!  Bust a nut!
Grab a bag of Corn Nutsâ„¢ and bust a nut!
They’re lightly toasted and hard as well,
Enjoy yourself, we won’t tell…

Everybody does it, they like it a lot,
You can do it at school , just don’t get caught!
It takes a few minutes, if you don’t delay;
Take your time and make it last all day!

“Corn Nutsâ„¢: An intensely crunchy corn snack.
Comes in seven nut-busting flavors.
Bust a nut at a convenience store near you.”


I wish that I came in seven
nut-busting flavors.

  2. I can only imagine what would happen if they went with the “play with your food” route in their advertising campaign

  3. I LOVED that commercial…was sad when they stopped playing it. Maybe they’ll be able to bring it back someday. 😉
