Singing the Avocado's Praises

January 22, 2009 7:00 AM

Online video comedy duo Rhett and Link landed a gig with the Food Network to serenade nature’s lard, otherwise known as the avocado. In advance of the Super Bowl—the time of the year when most avocados are bought and consumed in guacamole form—Food Network released “The Guacamole Song” online this week on its site and on YouTube.

Food Network said Americans will consume more than 46 million pounds on Feb. 1, the day of the big game. The video accompanies an extensive guacamole recipe section on FoodNetwork.com.

So was this a work for hire deal?

Do the boys Rhett and Link make any money on the back end? Do they have rights to the song?

What's the biz behind it Daisy?
