The tune has been used in popular culture for a long time and for many occasions and purposes. Verdi knew that he had written a very popular melody, so he provided the score to the singer at the premiere, Raffaele Mirate , only shortly before the premiere and had him swear not to sing or whistle the tune outside rehearsals.  And indeed, people sang the tune the next day in the streets. Early, it became a barrel organ staple, and later was used extensively in television advertisements.  Football fans chanted new words on the melody,  and it was used in video games and films.
