Actor Daniel Spenser has discovered a bizarre Trader Joe’s quirk that we can never unsee now. Spenser pointed out that all Trader Joe’s products have five-syllable names, but to get more specific, you can sing most Trader Joe’s product names to the tune of “Eleanor Rigby” by The Beatles. Eleanor Rigby when sung sounds like Ele-a-nor Rig-by.
Try singing the following Trader Joe’s products to the tune of “Eleanor Rigby,” because it’s super satisfying.
Harvest whole wheat bread.
Mini beef tacos.
Pita bite crackers.
Three seed beet crackers.
Pesto and quinoa.
If you aren’t familiar with the song (huh?), take a listen to “Eleanor Rigby.” Now you’re going to hum that song every time you take a trip to the grocery store.
Spenser first noticed the phenomenon on October 7th, 2017 and tweeted, “Not only does Trader Joe’s have great prices, all of their merch fits into “Eleanor Rigby.” Then on January 6th, 2018 he brought it up again and this time, it popped off. “Ya boy is back with more Trader Joe’s products that fit into ‘Eleanor Rigby,'” the actor tweeted.
The best part is when people tweet back at him trying to make sense of it. One Twitter user responded to him with: “am I understanding this correctly that you are saying these product names in the tune/cadence of literally the ‘Eleanor Rigby’ part of ‘Eleanor Rigby’?”
Lol, yes. It is exactly just that.
We wonder if Trader Joe’s purposefully chose five syllable words because of the sing-song quality? Regardless, we can’t escape it now. Pi-ta bite crack-ers…
