Comedian and singer Randy Rainbow is well known for filming musical parodies that skewer prominent politicians. His latest one takes aim at New York Republican Representative George Santos' penchant for lying.
Santos has been mired in scandal since New York Times reporters unearthed multiple lies he'd told about his life story. He now faces ethics investigations amid allegations he violated campaign finance law as well as a separate fraud inquiry in Brazil, where he used to reside.
Although Santos admitted to "embellishing" his résumé and questions remain about his education, work history and even his source of income, he has not heeded calls to step down from Congress, instead assuring GOP officials he will not run in 2024.
Randy Rainbow's latest musical parody mocks Santos with a Mary Poppins-inspired video that incorporates the song “Jolly Holliday” from the classic Disney film.
His video—which also uses the song “Georgy Girl” by the Seekers—can be seen below.
Joking about a lie Santos hasn't told yet and one he actually has, the comedian sings:
“He sailed up the Missouri with Lewis and Clark and then produced Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark."
He then went even further by joking Santos survived the sinking of the Titanic only to later star in the movie... and more.
“He survived the Titanic, then had to disrobe—in the movie, which won him his first Golden Globe."
"He invented the internet, waltzed with Astaire. His mother was Elvis. His father is Cher."
"He led the Congressional Science Committee. He starred as Samantha on Sex in the City."
"His album just dropped. He’d love to adopt. He’s full-out crazy and must be stopped.”
Fans loved every minute of Randy Rainbow's latest parody.
Santos has not commented on the video which as of this writing has over 413,000 views on Twitter alone.
In recent months, Randy Rainbow—yes, that really is his name—has focused on his podcast where he interviews celebrities and other prominent figures while still finding ways to comment on the political issues of the day.
His last parody video, released in January, reworked "Master of the House" from the musical Les Miserables to lampoon Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's contentious fight for the House speakership.
