Etymology[edit]

The first documented use of the phrase is in the 1954 self-titled song “Va Va Va Voom” by Art Carney. It was popularized a year later by car mechanic Nick in the Hollywood classic Kiss Me Deadly (1955), which helped the catchphrase to be remembered and reused many decades later in advertisements and pop songs.
