Garfunkel and Oates – Know them, watch their new video

Garfunkel and Oates (not sure which is which)

Garfunkel and Oates or as they are better known, Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci, follow in the vein of Weird Al and create comic songs.  I don’t know if they say they are songs that are funny or comedy in song form, but either way, I’m a big fan.

Both Riki and Kate have been all over the TV. Lindhome has been on Gilmore Girls and The Big Bang Theory, Micucci is familiar from Scrubs and Raising Hope.  They’re also big in the podcast world; Lindhome has her own podcast called “Making It” on the Nerdist network and Garfunkel and Oates are frequent visitors to many of the big comedy podcasts including Doug Loves Movies.

Apart they’re great, together they’re even better.

Case in point their new video for the song “My Apartment’s Very Clean Without You.” Not only is the animation a lot of fun, even for someone like myself who isn’t a cat person, but the content of the song itself is incredibly bittersweet and poignant.  And seriously, the cats as all the different items is a great touch.

For a listen/look at some of their more amusing songs, I offer you my favorites “Pregnant Women are Smug” and “This Party Took a Turn for the Douche.”
