Watch The Walking Dead Cast Perform "Monster Mash"
In the annals of weird one-word-at-a-time sing-along videos (look, the genre needs a better name, I get it), this one’s up there with the famous “”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPcapo5ZB_o">Baby Got Back" masterpiece. Here, the folks behind the Official Comedy YouTube account took clips from The Walking Dead and manipulated them to create a sort of staccato, disturbing and wonderful rendition of Bobby Pickett’s 1962 hit “Monster Mash.” They even adapted the lyrics to be zombie-topical! Check it out:
I wish “Monster Mash” was the show’s new theme song, because it would really change the tone. Even a fake trailer along the lines of the inspirational Shining recut would be great.
Next up in the sing-along genre, I’d love to see the cast of Breaking Bad sing “Bad to the Bone,” or have Don Draper and company give us their version of Gary Jules’ “Mad World.” (Actually, that last one sounds way too sad.)
