Transcript

“Good morning, Austin! How’s everybody doing this morning?

At the Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot, it doesn’t matter how you go.

I’m walking.

I’ll be running most of the way.

I’m running as hard as I can.

You’re gonna walk something off.

Gravy.

Stuffing.

Turkey.

Yorkshire pudding.

Parsnips. (WTF?!?!)

It’s just a good thing to do.

Well, I like the community feel. I like the fact that it’s Caritas.

It just reminds me of Austin.

What else are you gonna do before you eat all weekend?

the thundercloud subs radio jingle

Fellow Austinites who tune into 101X have probably heard the annoying jingle that Thundercloud Subs is currently playing. I would have to say that it is currently tied with the Reid’s Cleaners jingle that is currently playing on television but loses severely to the local Gatti’s commercial (“Dial 4 5 9 22 22 and get a Mr. Gatti’s pizza delivered…real cheese… real h0tt…”). Thundercloud’s previous jingle was mostly tolerable at least.

Thundercloud Subs Radio Jingle lyrics

When I’m really hungry and I want something good,

I go to the Thundercloud in my neighborhood.

The sandwich makers are friends of mine ’cause I’m in there all the time.

When my stomach starts to grumble, you can bet I happily stumble into Thundercloud Subs!

For a hometown vibe with delicious grub…

Thundercloud Subs!

It’s a tasty place that everybody loves.

Armadillo lady on a date with a stallion,

She’s a Veggie Delight and he’s a New York Italian.

You gotta eat. You know it’s true.

While you’re in the neighborhood, here’s what you do…

You go to Thundercloud Subs!

(roast beef avocado)

Thundercloud Subs!

It was drilled into my brain for a couple days, but I have yet to succumb to its temptation by getting one of their delicious NY Italians. We’ll see.
