Wu-Tang Clan founder creates new, non-racist ice cream truck jingle

It’s a low-stakes city ritual to gripe about the incessant jingle-jangle melody of the ice cream truck, running on loop all summer long. Well guess what? You were right to be annoyed, because the most popular ice cream truck song is problematic! Turkey in the Straw, which you can probably remember if you furrow your brow for a minute, has an iffy racist history dating back to its use in late-1800s minstrel shows. But in a stroke of marketing genius, Good Humor has partnered with rapper RZA (of Wu-Tang Clan fame) to create a new ice cream truck melody. Deadline has more on the campaign.
