Video: “Brand New Friend (Roomba Song)” by Mr. Pitiful

Scott “Mr. Pitiful” Monaghan sings the praises of his Roomba in this raucus, goofy anthem. I wanted to hate it but once the dancing started I was sold.

    although the music is diegetic he loses the dogme 95 thing with artificial light sources so it goes

    I liked it, but it lost film cred during the scene when filming and dancing with the roomba. I mean, come on!, at least secure the lens cover!!

    Oh my. I may have to learn that. One of the proposed filk sessions for Arisia ’09 is “songs of science and technology”…

    My mom has changed the words to Kumbyah for her own Roomba song: “Someone’s sweeping my floor, Roombyah” I don’t think we ever worked out the second verse, though.
