Just Missouri things
Tik Tok user Michael Underlin shared a surprising jingle performance at this Missouri wedding that almost everyone will find familiar, the original voice cast of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Jingle (that O, O, O, O’ Reilly one) not only reunited, they performed their hit song for everyone in attendance.
Check out their hit jingle performed one more time below.

Underlin’s video went absolutely viral, garnering over 1.4 Million views, hundreds of thousands of likes, and thousands of comments.
According to the NY Post, the happy couple who tied the knot are Patti Crump Lemons and Nick Sibley.
“Sibley — a musician by trade — composed the music in the 1980s and his wife is a video producer for the auto parts giant. They’ve gotten to know each other on the job for years.”
“Sibley does spots for Lay’s Potato Chips, Bass Pro Shops and O’Reilly Auto Parts among others. Bass and O’Reilly are headquartered in Springfield. Ozark Mountain Daredevils Steve Cash and John Dillon laid down the original “O-O-O’Reilly” vocals, charging the company one dollar. We do about 200 O’Reilly commercials every month here,” Sibley said. “
Put two and two together, and it looks like members of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, along with other vocal members of that commercial voice track, were also in attendance at their wedding and decided to perform their famous jingle (among other commercial jingles) one more time.
Here’s a screenshot of the main vocal duo, does that look like John Dillon of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils?

The post’s article goes onto say how LeMons and Sibley found out about their newfound TikTok fame on their Paris honeymoon.
“We just kind of got caught wind of it here in Paris. Somebody called us here [saying it was] on TikTok [and it] was getting a bunch of views,” Sibley told The Post. “You try to do something like that on purpose and you couldn’t do it.”
With O’Reilly’s tagged in the comments, you know their TikTok account had to comment something.
And if you’re hankering for the OG jingle, here it is below.
Lemons sounds like she’s glad but overall bewildered at all the attention it’s gotten.
“I’m shocked today that many people want to view something like that,” Crump Lemons said. “There were a lot of fun moments that day, and that was just the icing on the cake.”
