I agree with puppet Ben Carson. It does sound really fun to play the kazoo!

Marco Rubio muppet's voice reminds of Jello Biafra. You're not Jello Viafra, Greg Nog?

I am somewhat sad, because this clearly tests better with the mefi demo than another episode of Lil' Friendys.

from Mefi's own Greg Nog

I saw this and said, "please be puppets, please be puppets." Got a strange look from a person at another table.

whenever I hear a sing-song "Marco Rubio" I think, "Fish out of water!"

By the Comedic Law of Threes someone at a real debate will now sing the song.

So good! Ever notice how whichever episode of Lil Friendys you're watching at the moment is inevitably the best one?

Curse you Greg Nog! I live in Canada, I can't walk around all day singing "Mar-co Ru-bio"

Well, it tested very well.

the SO got home from a business trip just now, tired. I had to welcome him by sing-yelling Mar-co Rub-i-o, Mar-co Rub-i-o until I saw the man do a full-body wince.

This will probably sound like faint praise, but I really like the background behind the candidates.

I've been singing it for 24 hours.
Someone kill me.

Dear Greg Nog,

I have been wondering if I will have the Marco Rubio song on my mind forever. This morning I decided to put it to use and changed the lyrics to "Pick Up Keys" ("Pick Up Key-ee-eys, Pi-ick U-up Keys!") because I needed to remember to pick up some keys. I remembered to pick up the keys.

Now I am wondering if I will have the Pick up Keys song on my mind forever. Although in the past hour or so it has been morphing into the Pick up Cheese song, so more good may come of this yet.

Anyhow, thanks for the video. If you need an artistic impact statement for a grant or something, feel free to use the above anecdote.

Sincerely,
yarrow

Mar-co Rub-i-o, Mar-co Rub-i-o.

It's Valentine's Day, and I wanted to make sure everyone with this on their recent activity gets to share in the Rubio love.

I've rewritten the song's lyrics to be about my dog, and now the song is much more positive and upbeat, with a catchy hook and an anthemic quality that appeals to every demographic. I think we may have the next big summer jam here.

Peter puppydog, Peter puppydog!
Peter puppydog, Peter puppydog!

I've just released a followup single!

Peter puppydog, let's go for a walk!

I'm seriously going to have to take this thread off my activity, because every time I get that song out of my head, you monsters put it back in.

(Though it tested very well).

How has it tested with audiences?

I hope Ben Carson can still show up somehow in later efforts, maybe with some ramen of his own
