#tbt Z Morning Show: The History Of ‘Oh, Hi’ [LISTEN]
Kid educates Sarah on how it all began!
Our biggest catchphrase on the Z Morning Show is the now legendary, "Oh, hi" from the one and only Chris Popper. Ever wondered where it came from? It all started back in 2006, when Chris cut a commercial for Vision Care of Maine, where he played a concert pianist (don't ask) who has terrible eyesight. The idea of this was so absurd to me, one of our employees took a few of his lines from the ad and put them on something we call a "hot key" which means I can easily click my mouse in the studio and play it whenever I like, and boy have I!
Check out the video of us calling Chris up live on the air and give him grief about his acting performance in the commercial. Gotta hand it to him, because over the years that phrase has inspired T-shirts, license plates and only god knows what else.
And let's not forget the time we played a game of OHHI on the Brewer basketball courts.
Till next time, "Oh Bye"
