LA's The Place Catches Up with Cheech Marin

LA's The Place host Jeff Gaskin chats with legendary comedian Cheech Marin at the Oscar's gifting room.  This is where celebrities get expensive things for free even though they can afford to buy them.  

Cheech loves getting free things.  This is one of the reasons he does so many charity golf tournaments.  For instance, if it's a BMW tournament, BMW gives all the participants a beemer for a few weeks.

Tacky?  Yes.

Peter Frampton Talks About Working on Up in Smoke

Many people don't know this, but music legend, Peter Frampton, was one of the many artists that worked on the Cheech and Chong Up in Smoke Soundtrack.

When asked about it, he says...
“That’s going to be something to talk about till the day I die because everybody loved the movie so much. It was a lot of fun to do that. That’s when I was played with Waddy Wachtel Warren Zevon and those guys. We did most of the soundtrack I mean they used songs from other artist but all the background music was what we recorded for that movie. When they’re driving around in the van you hear the music in the background could be a reggae song or a rock song. I don’t think the songs we did really had names or anything we were just providing music for the background.”

Good Times Announces Cheech & Chong Radio Campaign

Good Times Restaurants Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIM) today announced a new radio campaign featuring iconic 1970’s comedians Cheech & Chong to promote their limited time Santiago’s Green Chile menu.

"We asked our ad agency, Sukle Advertising, to come up with a creative platform that pushes the envelope with breakthrough qualities consistent with our historically irreverent brand personality and they certainly filled that bill with very funny scripts delivered by Cheech and Chong,” said Boyd Hoback, President and CEO. He added, "We originally questioned whether Cheech & Chong are relevant to our customer base, but they are gaining new traction and affinity, particularly with the millennial crowd having appeared on the Simpsons, That ‘70s Show and a national comedy tour. While their personas are still tied to their movie and comedy album characters from many years ago, our ads make light of them turning All Natural and Good Times now being the dispensary of happiness.”

The company said that it has created three radio spots that will air throughout October and November. The ads highlight Good Times’ Cheeseburger Burrito, Green Chile Fries and Green Chile Sliders, all featuring Santiago’s authentic Hatch Valley New Mexico green chile.

Hoback added, "We found that our customers use us primarily for the quality of our all natural, made to order products and because they feel better about themselves for choosing Good Times, so we are aligning our brand communications under the theme of ‘Happiness Made to Order.’ Using Cheech & Chong is a fun, tongue-in-cheek way to bring that to life and not take ourselves too seriously.”

Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard has 46 restaurants, mostly in Colorado serving premium quality, 100% all natural beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, and fresh frozen custard.
