Viral video parodies Romney concession

November 7, 2012

The family that brought you the "Bed Intruder Song" and "Songify the News" are at it again, parodying Mitt Romney's concession speech in a cheery musical number making the YouTube rounds. The Gregory Brothers song, paired with real footage from Romney's concession, pokes fun at the candidate's wealth with lines like "I'm done pretending to have fun with the plebeians" and "besides, who on earth could possibly get by on $400,000 a year?"

A quick warning to viewers -- there are mild curse words around the 50-second and two-minute marks.
