Truvia Chocolate Bunny Commercial – What’s the Song?
Move over, “Weird Al” Yankovic? The sugar substitute Truvia uses a song parody in a new commercial promoting its sweetener set to the tune of the classic lullaby ‘Hush Little Baby.’
With a twinkling toy piano, singer Jetty Rae offers up an ode to the chocolate bunny: “Hush little bunny don’t say a word / We used to be enemies, that’s absurd / A nibble on your ear used to keep me up all night / Now our relationship can be nice and bright / Yes my chocolate friend, our struggle’s through / When I bite your head off, I still love you / Now I have Truvia and I’ve been set free / Natural sweetness from a leaf with zero calories.”
Not exactly Song of the Year-worthy lyrics, but it’s a sweetener commercial, after all. Rae has a pleasant voice, and her vocals are paired with shots of a girl trying her hardest not to eat a chocolate bunny on the table. She finally gives in and takes off both ears after hearing the bunny was made with Truvia. The rest of the ad shows close-ups of the sugar substitute being sprinkled on fruit and in beverages.
Michigan native Jetty Rae is a singer/songwriter who has been recording for nearly a decade now. Her last album, ‘Drowning in Grain,’ hit retailers in February of this year. Rae performed on a side stage at the 2010 revival of the Lilith Fair. Her YouTube page features original songs and covers like Foster the People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ and ’1,2,3,4′ by Feist.
