Personally this catch phrase was my favorite, just because of the era and the unlikely shoot to stardom of Seth Green. Green said it best here.

"“This woman in New Orleans flew me to cheer the halftime at a Saints-Raiders game. I stepped off the plane like Luke Perry in the second year of ‘90210.’ People were losing their minds. It’s like we were speaking a language and the language was ‘Cha-Ching.’ I was 17 so I was still getting thrown over the hood of cars by police on occasion. [Laughs] Now I had two to six armed New Orleans police officers escorting me everywhere. They were giving me their cards and saying, ‘my wife wants to cook the ‘Cha-Ching’ guy a home-cooked meal.”"

This catch phrase became synonymous with the 1991 season. Green and Saints fans can thank the Superdome replay monitor person for this hit. The person in charge made a decision to show various clips from commercials during the preseason games. This catch phrase caught on like red beans on rice. Coincidentally, the Saints started off 7-0 that year. The ‘Cha-Ching’ catch phrase seemed to be on every corner that magical year.
