Every time I lament the sad state of online video viewing, I do come across some unexpected, heartfelt gems like Chewbacca Mom. Yes, I know I’m exceptionally late jumping on this bandwagon, but it’s a fun piece of Youtube,…
,… now she has landed her very own action figure,…
,… and she even sang the National Anthem before an Astros ballgame (and yes, she can sing).
This is most definitely one of those videos that is so simple and nonsensical, yet so easily puts a smile on my face. I love her great laugh interspersed with the wookie sounds. And it made me miss the good old days of “The Soup” and what may be one of the most unexpected treasures of the series, Spaghetti Cat.
It makes no sense whatsoever, and yet I’d be rolling with laughter every time Spaghetti Cat came onscreen.
About the Author
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends. I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better! When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion. I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
