We have finally located the “The Don’t Lay that Trash on Oklahoma” jingle

6:24 AM EDT on September 19, 2012

For several years now, we've begged for someone with Jordan Associates or ODOT to add the classic "Don't Lay That Trash on Oklahoma" commercial to YouTube. Since both groups are either incompetent or don't read The Lost Ogle, it never happened. Finally, we've obtained a 30-audio spot of the jingle via the Ogle Mole Network. If you remember what life was like before cable, cell phones and Starbucks, get out your nostalgia cap:

Here's the deal. If you were born in or before 1985, read Section A. If you were born in 1986 or after, read section B.

A: Is that the original version? I thought the song had a faster pace to it. Maybe this is some goofy alternate version that was played on 1520 KOMA in 1991 or something. Regardless, this is as anti-climatic as getting your drivers license, losing your virginity or eating at In-N-Out burger for the first time. The only difference is that I now feel the need to watch DuckTales or Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers.

B: Screw you. You probably don't even remember this jingle. That means you also don't know Tall Paul's phone number by heart or that Oklahoma was "The Greatest State in 88." Your favorite local vintage commercial jingle is probably something lame like "Taco Mayo Me Baby" or "Drabek and Hill." Okay, Drabek and Hill is still cool.
