The world is a festering pile of garbage with no hope in sight, but every now and again something good comes along to momentarily distract us from the pain. Like this fun video! It’s from the NBC variety show Maya & Marty, starring Maya Rudolph and Martin Short, which I forgot was a thing until this video came along on the Internet, so good job social media team.
In it Rudolph and Emma Stone perform a cover of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend,” pulling off some lovely harmonies, and playing percussion on tubs of butter. It’s an obvious let’s-go-viral stunt gimmick, but damn if it’s not worth falling for anyway.
Ok, wait, hold on a second. I just remembered how heartbreaking a song this is. Never mind, everything is terrible again.
