I am the cute one

December 29, 2010 6:13 PM

A cover of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's classic, "I Am The Cute One," from the groundbreaking "Our First Video."

I have 3 versions of this song. This one, where I'm singing with myself. Another one, where it's all chipmunk me singing with chipmunk me. The third one is chipmunk me singing with normal me. I really couldn't decide which one to put up here. Given that we all know what chipmunks sound like, you could just imagine the second and third ones. Unless you really want to hear those, and then I'll put them up. Yeah.

Singing all of the parts to this song is a hilariously great idea. Nice one. After watching the original version, your cover is actually pretty faithful, with the exception of the deadpan almost robot-y vocal gag.

You know, I wasn't creeped out until the "talky" bits at the end. And then I was squigged out in a big way. Which I guess is the point.

I was more squigged out by the original video on youtube. So creepily stepford.

Oh yeah, it's horrifying, to the point where you have to wonder two things: 1. how did this happen?; and 2. did kids actually enjoy it?

They look like puppets and to some extent they really were puppets. Money-making puppets.

Requisite link. Awesome, as always. I think this is the best idea out of the three you mentioned in the post.

What tha--?! Corduroy, that link is mindbending. Monsieur, there's your next mission, if you choose to accept it...

I've been working on a "GIMME PIZZZZAAAA" remix for about a month now, umbú! But I've been stuck on it for a while.

I guess what I have at this point is something shorter and sort of J Dilla-esque, rather than a full "SONG song." But lemme see if I can clean it up a bit and post it.

Thanks Corduroy!
