Comments: The secret history of Mah-na Mah-na

I saw Toxic Audio a few years ago. The a capella combo that night nobody really got was called Double Dong. It's worth a listen just as an academic exercise.

And of course, this is all topical because of the Dr Pepper commercial that's been airing recently.

Pretty girl and Mr. Perfect are on a date. Mr. Perfect is expositing how perfect he is, but Pretty Girl isn't listening because oooooh, shiny Dr Pepper and "Mah-na Mah-na" is playing in her head. Perfect song choice, if you ask me oh my god I have no life help me.

Oh, this is very useful (which may just prove I'm a freak). When I got the Sesame Street boxed set I noticed that Mah Na Mah Na was credited to this weird Italian guy I didn't know.

Now I know.

Another fine public service of Heaneyland!

Forgot to mention: As a kid, I heard the song used on Benny Hill reruns on television. But because I am dumb, I didn't work out the chronology before seeing the song credit and realize that therefore it must have had an existence before Jim Henson. After all, I saw the Muppets do it LONG before I saw it on Benny Hill ....
