I mentioned this on Episode 7: The Osama Thing, Bullies and Vampires. If you haven’t had a chance to listen, please feel free to do so. The podcast is in the post — or you can click on the iTunes link on the side to download it directly.
30 Rock continues to be one of my favorite shows presently on television. It brings together so many different brands of comedy and fuses them all together in an homage to anything and everything. In one episode there was a throwaway joke (seventeen seconds) where Tracy Jordan (played by Tracy Morgan) finds his Grammy award for the novelty song he had made which sounds identical to The Monster Mash. They cut away to the video for Werewolf Bar Mitzvah. That, in itself, was funny enough.
But then they decided to produce the entire song for the 30 Rock soundtrack! The following is from NBC’s site; a video was not made, but they cut together stills of the clip and played the music over it. I like how the Jewish humor is there — but it simply doesn’t mix with what we think of Tracy. Have a listen…
