Victor Borge does a similar thing with Happy Birthday

Fun! One criticism. There was a missed opportunity with the Phillip Glass response bubble. Instead of just ugh, it should have said Excedrin, the headache medicine.

The doggo really sells it tho…

Bill Bailey is a national treasure (I wish he were ours :smiley:).
