"Baby Back Ribs" Jingle Singer Dies, Has BBQ-Themed Funeral
 
Willie McCoy, the legendary singer behind Chili's infamous "Baby Back Ribs" jingle, will be outlived by the legacy of that song for years to come. But apparently his love of BBQ went beyond the iconic tune, and his family decided to celebrate his affinity for the cuisine at McCoy's funeral.

According to the Huffington Post, the singer's funeral was televised on TLC's latest reality show, "Best Funeral Ever." The Golden Gate Funeral Home in Dallas, Texas, (where all episodes take place) took the BBQ theme extremely seriously. Not only did McCoy's pallbearers sing the jingle as they carried out the casket, but they were dressed as chefs and the casket itself was designed to resemble a BBQ Smoker.
