The smell never bothered me anyway.

An offbeat & off-key remix of "Let it Go" as performed by Emily Mandelbaum, age 8. NSFW.

Can you tell us why its NSFW? Cuz I'm not clicking on a link that features an 8 year old and is also NSFW without knowing the reason.

thx.

NSFW because of singing about pooping.

You're welcome.

I think Mama and Papa Mandelbaum are going to have a helluva laugh when they play this at their daughter's Bat Mitzvah in 2019.

This Is Just To Say

I have altered
your song
about feminist
princesses

so that
I could sing
about needing
to poop

Forgive me
It was ridiculous
so sweet
and so silly.

PS: I enjoyed all the princess decorations in the room of this poop-talking eight year old.

Might be funnier if I didn't strongly suspect her dad wrote the song.

Yeah. This was so obviously written by a parent.... Fail.

Just don't think it works this side of the pond.

Sorry, kid, this does not sound at all like Def Leppard.

I don't know, could be, but I have a couple of eight year old nieces, and I can easily see one of them write something like this.

I think it's totally possible that she wrote it (I was ALL ABOUT writing gross/silly parodies of popular songs around that age), but watching it I could feel nothing but secondhand embarrassment for teenage Ms. Mandelbaum, who is totally going to hate her parents for putting it on YouTube.

Today I learned not all 8-year olds are funny.

Ha, just kidding. Gratuitous bestiality at the 2:13 mark!

Showed this to my husband. As with all such things he immediately said "Your kid." (Which is our shorthand for "if we had kids they would be like this and it would be because of YOU.")

As a grown-assed woman who did this sort of thing a lot when I was a kid, there has been no point in my life when the content or performance of a song like that would have been humiliating to me.

I was much older than this talented young lady when I wrote one of my masterpieces, "This Butt Makes Poo," a tortured and detailed account of constipation to the tune of Spandau Ballet's "This Much is True." To this day, I recall with pride the many people who told me I'd permanently ruined the original version of that song for them.

I'm thinking that an eight year old who would write and perform this song (which I don't doubt she did) is probably not magically going to transform into a completely different person just because she gets older. She'll probably just get better and better at it and the only people who will be ashamed of their past behaviors will be those who publicly doubted her talents and are subsequently rejected for membership in her fan club.

SO THERE.

Oh goodness yes, my friends and I were writing parodies like this of everything when we were her age--it was the heyday of Weird Al Yankovic, after all.

Not quite the next Sarah Silverman. Slightly better than the average 8-year-old.

Somewhere in the world, this made that 43yo man who's into scat and 8yo girls day.
If I were her parents, I'd most certainty not encourage this behavior.

@queenAngel28 Because, of course, the onus is on the victim to not do anything that might provoke someone.

Please stop victim blaming. Victim blaming has never helped. No 43 yo man who is into scat and 8yos has ever stopped being into that because of a dearth of material. It doesn't stop being a problem because you shame some poor 8 yo and her parents. The only thing you do is possibly cause another problem - making a little girl feel badly about herself, that she somehow causes bad things to happen.

This reminds me of being around that age myself and deriving much pleasure from changing the words of 'I love to laugh' from Mary Poppins to 'I love to fart'. It works really well, too. "Loud and long and clear..."

This was so obviously written by a parent

Not at all obvious to this parent of an 8 year old girl with a penchant for potty humor and parody.
