On my drive in to work this morning I was reminded of an old YouTube craze called "Leprechaun in Mobile, AL" that is the basis for today's song of the day.
93X (93.7 FM) in Minneapolis is without a doubt my favorite source for music in the Twin Cities. During the morning hours they, like every other radio station, mix in their version of a talk show aptly named the "Half-@ssed Morning Show."
A frequent listener of the show apparently emailed the following video to the guys at the station, who proceeded to devote about 5 minutes of air time debating if the 'leprechaun story' was real or not.
Without a doubt, the million dollar question is whether or not the sketch was drawn by a professional artist or kindergartner using Etch-A-Sketch? You be the judge.
The 93X fellas also shared their awe that people in 2009 would make this a news-worthy story (ironic, I know).
I hate to burst their bubble but I can't believe they had never seen this video before. It was originally posted in 2006 and remains a cult classic to this day.
In the technological landscape we live in, where home videos can become overnight pop culture sensations, it is difficult for stories to carry public interest with such longevity but "da leprechaun" was certainly up to the challenge.
A fan site dedicated to the story illustrates just how much pull "da leprechaun" still has.
Without any further adieu I present to you a rap song dedicated to this truly epic story.
