Best Funeral Ever Features Barbecue-Themed Burial for Chili's 'Baby Back Ribs' Jingle Singer
TLC, the network that introduced America to Honey Boo Boo, has a new special on the air that some might consider DOA. Best Funeral Ever features, uh, highlights from the final good-byes to deceased individuals.
Recently, TLC ran an episode of Willie McCoy's tribute at the Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas, Texas. McCoy lent his voice to the famed Chili's "Baby Back Ribs" jingle, letting listeners nationwide aware that he wanted his baby back, baby back, baby back.
McCoy's smoker-shaped casket and dipping sauce fountain were also part of the send-off for someone who was clearly loved and admired in his community. [TLC via GS]
