Home Depot Idol? Salesman Uses His Ukulele And Becomes Internet Music Sensation

CBS Los Angeles

LAGUNA NIGUEL (CBSLA.com) A salesman at a local Home Depot is getting a lot of attention — and it has nothing to do with his selling ability.

Sal Baca, perhaps better known as Sal the Appliance Pal, often gets a round of applause from customers.

The 74-year-old is known to break out his ukulele and break out into song at the Home Depot in Laguna Niguel.

He’s been turning heads on YouTube.

He makes a sale and KCAL9’s Jennifer Kastner reports that is reason enough to start a serenade.

“Then I grab the ukulele from down under and they say oh my god he’s seriously gonna sing a song,” says a smiling Baca. “Then I ask them what their favorite song is.”

Baca’s not just good at singing. You should see his dance moves, too.

The crowd asks to hear “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and he delivers a pitch-perfect performance.
