Jones BBQ and Foot Massage was a parody skit produced by Robert L. Hines, a Chicago actor and stand up comedian, who played the role of Toby Jones in a number of parody advert skits, where he and his crew -Big Dog Eat Child, are seen advertising this and that.



The infamous ad starts with the catchy jingle. We see the chef ‘Toby Jones’ in the company of the purple dinosaur and the yellow chicken, advertising BBQ and massage in an empty restaurant where he talks about a restaurant where folks can enjoy a meal of BBQ, and get their feet massaged at the same time. And, you get to pick what sauce you want to get the message with.

Toby’s BBQ spot can fry anything ‘fryable’ and ‘eatable’, and make it ‘deliciousable’. He will fry the beak and feathers of the chicken, and even candy bars. “If it fits through the door, I’d put it in the fry… We have got fine dinosaur meat.”

“I was doing this little coffee house in Naperville and this [sketch comedy group], Big Dog Eat Child, was there. After we met at that coffee house, one of the guys texted me: “Listen. We have a character that we think is really funny, but we can’t seem to make him work. Could you do this character for us?”

So they brought me to this warehouse. The Weirdest thing I had ever seen. It was people living there. It was a lot of junk in the yard that nobody seems to give a shit about, and there were bands living in this place. This was on, like, 30th and right around Halsted. So we hammered out the first one which is called Jones’ Big Ass Truck Rental and Storage Facility. Then, they said, “We got a second one we want to do.” This was Jones’ Good Ass BBQ & Foot Massage.”
