Lana Del Rey Completes Transformation Into Jessica Rabbit

+

“Why Don’t You Do Right?” has been recorded and performed by numerous artists over the eight odd decades since it was written, but, being pop culture addled simpletons, it’s probably most familiar to most of us as the centerpiece number of the nightclub scene in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, aka the first time many of us ever got a boner from a cartoon.

And, if you’re thinking, haha, Lana Del Rey doing Jessica Rabbit is funny because she’s like an IRL version of that, then good thinking buddy, because that’s entire joke. Check it out below.
