The Big Rock Candy Mountain

  1. It’s also a famous folk song about a magical imaginary world for homeless people, so maybe there’s a connection there.

  2. It’s also currently being used on a Chevy Truck commercial. It’s a different version than the one used on OUR show, but it still stuck the ear-worm back in my head.

  3. I think it’s more likely meant to just evoke the drudgery and repetitiveness of being trapped in a warehouse working all night and sleeping all day, because the song fantasizes about a magical land with no work and free food and drink for everyone.
