Gap Jumps, Jives, and Swings

Gap, Incorporated is an American clothing and accessories retailer based in San Francisco, California and founded in 1969 by Donald Fisher and Doris Fisher. The Fishers opened their first shop because they had been frustrated with the lack of decent customer service and fashionable styles at other retailers. The name was derived from the growing differences between children and adults — namely “the generation gap” — which reached its peak with the hippie movement.

Michel Gondry, born May 8, 1963 (1964 according to some sources), is a French Academy Award winning screenwriter, film, commercial, and music video director noted for his inventive visual style and manipulation of mise en scène.

The Brian Setzer Orchestra (sometimes going by the acronym BSO) is a swing/rockabilly band formed in 1990 by Stray Cats frontman Brian Setzer. The group had success covering Louis Prima’s “Jump Jive An’ Wail”.

Tutti Frutti Levi’s

Levi’s is a brand of riveted denim jeans manufactured by Levi Strauss & Co. In modern times, Levi’s has become one of the top-10 most litigious companies in the world, aggressively pursuing action against any rival fashion company producing jeans that infringe on the trademark (US #1,139,254) on the Levi’s jeans’ 133 year old iconic back pocket.

“Tutti Frutti” was Little Richard’s first hit record in 1955; with its opening cry of “Womp-bomp-a-loom-op-a-womp-bam-boom!” and its hard-driving sound and wild lyrics, it became not only a model for many future Little Richard songs, but also one of the models for rock and roll.

However, in order to make it commercially acceptable, Robert ‘Bumps’ Blackwell had Little Richard‘s lyrics changed from “tutti-frutti, good booty” to “tutti frutti, aw rooty.”
