Based off the jump in sales Clif Bar received from being name dropped in the timeless Phish classic “Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan,” Jimmy Dean Sausage has allegedly paid Phish a hefty sum of cash to appear within the lyrics of their recently confirmed new studio album.
According to our source Skip (you may remember him as the guy who puked all over that pregnant lady up on the lawn in Atlanta this past summer); Phish has agreed to change the lyrics to “Summer of ’89” as follows:
Jimmy Dean Sausage For Breakfast
We hiked the Long Trail to a spring
I took blades of grass
And I wove you a ring
Skip also goes on to share that Luna Bar originally wanted to have their product placed into the sweet love song Phish front man Trey Anastasio penned for his wife. Yet after looking out at the crowd during this past summer’s stop in Kansas, Luna Bar executives realized that Phish shows are a total sausage fest and clearly not the market they are looking to penetrate. With that observation, Phish was left with no choice but to team with the tasty breakfast treat.
Despite the fact he died in 2010, many Phish fans believe Jimmy Dean himself will sit in with the band during next year’s Hampton Coliseum run. Kenny Rogers has been dead since 2008 and that didn’t stop the man behind Kenny Rogers Roasters from appearing with the band during their 2012 Bonnaroo appearance.
