|Quoting OPNLguy (Reply 2):|
Not having an appropriate company name or logo to use (Avenging Conscience notwithstanding), they tossed in the logo of Braniff Airlines - a defunct airline from the 60s and 70s - the music is the melody from "Cannibal." After the show aired, they were contacted by a company that owned the rights to the Braniff name and logo. An agreement was made to allow them the use of the logo on South Park broadcasts, but not on any other projects in the future.
The BRANIFF that is used for this commercial was Braniff, Inc. Braniff, Inc., operated from 1984 to 1989. This company was brought back into the air by Jay Pritzker of Hyatt Hotels. In 1988 Mr. Pritzker sold the company to a group of investors led by Jeffrey Cadorow who was the famed owner of Rocco's on NBC's The Restaurant. The BRANIFF, BELIEVE IT
, was the companies last slogan. When Braniff, Inc (84) took to the skies. It was "Braniff, The best low fair in the air, Believe it." Since Chadow had taken over, his team led by former Piedmont exec, Bill McGee, wanted to shorten it to just "Believe It!"
