You know that Gerry Todd can do no wrong in my eyes. And as circular as this argument is, his endorsement of this video is enough to make it worthy.
But I wonder how Rick Moranis feels about this nugget today? Ipanema Rap circa 1989. Was it prescient insightful parody of early hip hop culture? Or the most awkward and uncomfortable Girl from Ipanema cover ever – delivered by two white guys who seem to be satirizing rap but getting their wardrobe from Spandau Ballet.
Rick? Are you out there?
How aaaaaaare yahh?

Notable Contributions to the world:
- Too many great SCTV characters to mention, but how about funnyman Bobby Bittman, polka legend Stan Schmenge, and news anchor Earl Camembert for a start (“One On the Town with Earl Camembert: Singles Bars”)
- Gerry Fleck, two left footed husband of Cookie in Best of Show
- Cock eyed Dr. Allen Pearl in Waiting for Guffman. Gotta love those Christopher Guest movies.
- and we’ll admit he was pretty funny as the Dad in that pie sex movie, which shall remain nameless.
