Four-time Grammy-award winning comedy singer “Weird Al” Yankovic currently stars in Disney XD’s latest animated series “Milo Murphy’s Law,” from the creators of popular kid series’ “Phineas and Ferb,” but when he’s not entertaining children with his voice talent, he’s helping The Gregory Brothers “songify” the news. In honor of the latest presidential debate, The Gregory Brothers and “Weird Al” have released the song “Bad Hombres, Nasty Women,” which takes snippets of Hillary Clinton’s and Donald Trump’s answers and turns them into a fun new song. Watch it below.
The song employs many of the catchphrases that became popular post debate, mainly Trump’s use of “bad hombres” and “nasty women,” but also “big league,” often misheard as “bigly,” “I don’t know Putin” and “I say it’s rigged.” The chorus for the song, sung by “Weird Al,” goes, “Why should you run the show? / Tell us cause we need to know / Two more weeks until we vote / Who should really run the show?”
The Gregory Brothers first rose to prominence in 2009 with their series of popular “Auto-Tune The News” videos that digitally manipulated the voices of politicians and news anchors into tiny songs. Their 2010 hit “Bed-Intruder Song,” featuring Antoine Dodson, was the most-watched video on YouTube that year.
