This website is intended to showcase the trials and tribulations encountered by the mild-mannered Brian Latimer

Well, that may not be the real "purpose" of this site, but you get the idea.


Earbug of the day/month/year: "Mahna-Mahna"

posted by Brian on 6/10/2005 11:55:00 AM  

You know that Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper ad with the incredibly-catchy, goofy music?

Well, as I was discussing with friends recently, it's based on what some consider to be the best Muppet Show skit ever - that of "Mahna-Mahna and the two Snowths" (their name is a combination of "Snout" and "Mouth" - so they should really be "Snouths"). See that page for more details, and the full lyrics.

And, I've found links to a video of the original skit, as well as a slightly-different audio file - which is even funnier, IMHO, due to the extended Waldorf & Statler commentary. (And, as an aside, here's the rough opposite of that commentary, as well ;-)

WARNING: Watch/listen to this song, and it will be stuck in your head for quite some time...

And note: Each attempt I've made to verify my belief that "If you merely say 'mahna-mahna' to anyone who grew up in the '70s, they will immediately respond with 'do-doo-de-do-do'" has worked out perfectly. Thanks for validating this, folks!

(As far as my term "earbug" - see this story)
YEAH! This is great. It's now on my ipod for grins when shuffling songs.... made my day.
Lots-o-fun here!

Link change for the video...
Video link is now updated - thanks, Tim!
