What started out as a team-building exercise landed the Tahlequah Fire Department in a TV commercial for the national company Ragú. Firefighter Anthony Margarit posted a video to his personal TikTok account, after he and his co-workers filmed a “commercial” wherein Margarit was cooking at Station 1 using Ragú sauce. Ragú’s recent blurbs have shown people cooking with its sauces and saying, “Cook like a mother!” Margarit boasted in the video that he is, in fact, cooking like a mother. “Ours doesn’t follow the Ragú commercial exactly; we just took bits and pieces we thought were fun, and we wanted everybody to be included in it,” said TFD Capt. Jody Enlow. Enlow came up with the idea as a team-building exercise for his shift. His brother-in-law emailed the TikTok video to Ragú, and a company representative contacted Margarit directly on the social media app.
