‘Jeopardy!’ Icon Ken Jennings ‘Can’t Stop’ Saying Hilarious Phrase Thanks to Weird Paypal Ad

by Megan Molseed

When it comes to recognizable sounds, the popular game show, “Jeopardy!” has some of the most memorable ones. From the buzzer sound letting contestants know when they have run out of time, or if their question wasn’t the correct one, to the famous theme music, “Jeopardy!” brings some of the most memorable sounds. 

However, there are certainly some other sounds that are extremely recognizable to the public. For “Jeopardy!” icon, Ken Jennings, one of these comes in the form of a recent Paypal radio commercial. 

Jennings found himself impressed with the catchy, and odd, saying.

“I keep hearing this Paypal radio ad that has different sound effects for different businesses and the “boba shop” cue is a man saying “Brewed to pearly perfection!” in an extremely weird voice,” the “Jeopardy!” champion said in a June 17 Tweet. “Now I can’t stop saying that.” 

In the commercial, the popular online payment company tells listeners that the company is a perfect way for customers to pay for a variety of services. For Jennings, the sound related to the boba shop option was quite amusing.  

“The extremely normal thing we always hear at the boba shop,” Ken Jennings added to his tweet.  

Some Funny Stuff “Jeopardy!” Star Ken Jennings’ Twitter

This wasn’t the first time the “Jeopardy!” GOAT turned to the popular social media site to display both his wit and humor.

Earlier this week, Jennings tweeted an image of Blu-ray disc that he found rather funny.

The Blu-ray cover featured “Friday Night Lights” star, Kyle Chandler looking up, and to Jennings, it appeared the actor was looking at the Blu-ray logo. 

The photo posted with the tweet shows a Friday Night Lights Blue-ray cover. The cover features actor Kyle Chandler’s face on the front. In the photo, Chandler is glancing upwards, as if he were reading the Blue-ray label. 

“I like this box set because Kyle Chandler knows he’s on a Blu-ray,” Jennings said in the June 15 tweet

“Jeopardy!” icon Ken Jennings has made a career out of knowing an unbelievable amount of information. The “Jeopardy!” star took on the answer/question game show in 2004. Jennings broke records with a 74-episode winning streak on the long-running game show. By the time he left the show, Jenning’s had won over $2.5 million. 

While the Paypal advertisement may be stuck in his head now, it is very likely the catchy “Jeopardy!” tune was on his mind when he stepped in as guest host of the popular gameshow earlier this year. 

Jennings is one of many guest hosts asked to take over hosting duties after the game show’s original host, Alex Trebek lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in the fall of 2020.
