This is an ode to all those annoying birds who are singularly obsessed with ruining the picnic you planned for weeks, by organizing a discreet army and attacking as soon as the Fritos make an appearance. clipnationdotcom put together this video of hungry birds stealing food from hungry humans. It’s appropriately set to the tune of ”Angry Birds Theme” by Pomplamoose.
Pomplamoose tastefully delayed their cover of the Batman theme song, originally by Danny Elfman, because of the tragedy in Aurora. Although they were going to scrap it altogether, they ultimately decided to release it for fans who were expecting it.
“One of the points of YouTube videos and the music that we listen to and all that stuff is to be a counter point to all the horrible things that happen in the world,” said Jack Conte, one half of the duo. ”It was originally intended to be this fun, exciting minute of superhero insanity for Batman fans.”
The electronic cover starts off with Nataly Dawn’s eerie voice before delving into Pomplamoose’s trademark multi-instrumental sound.
My initial enthusiasm over Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” has slowly waned because they’re both on the radio ALL THE TIME. Then there are all the parodies that set us in an unexplainable tizzy everyday. If the songs were physical beings, I would grab them by the shoulders, shake them and be like: “For the love of music, stop it. Stop it already!!”
Still, I’d be amiss not to point out this mashup of the two songs. PomplamooseMusic took the famous chords out of “Call Me Maybe” for the the chorus and superimposed the melody and lyrics from “Somebody That I Used To Know.”
Although “Do Not Push” combines two overplayed songs, it ends up being pretty catchy in the end. What do you think?
