Papa John’s ‘Back to the Future’ 2014 Commercial With Peyton Manning – What’s the Song?
In the 2014 ‘Back to the Future’ Papa John’s commercial, which celebrates pizza maker Papa John’s 30th anniversary, Manning and Papa John take a road trip back in time to 1984, when it all began. The future Hall of Fame QB noshes on a slice while Papa John moonwalks to a classic track from the era. What’s the song?
Oh, just ‘The Safety Dance’ by Men Without Hats, which was a major song of the early MTV generation. Papa John mixes his music and his motions, doing a little moonwalk to the song. Not even Peyton Manning can condone the dancing!
It might make you laugh, and it might make you hungry for a slice. It might also make you incredibly nostalgic for an era long gone. The song is emblematic of the 1980s, and it’s certainly of a transportive quality.
