Funny Cartoon video – misheard lyrics from Orff’s “O Fortuna” from Carmina Burana

We don’t often post funny videos – but this one is worth the effort to post and share. Carl Orff’s “O Fortuna” opening movement of Carmina Burana is to some a very familiar tune. It’s crossed over in popular culture in commercials and popular movies:

‘Excalibur’, 1981.
‘Glory’ 1989.
‘Hunt for Red October’, 1990.
‘The Doors’, 1991.
‘Natural Born killers’, 1994.
‘The Bachelor’, 1999.
‘Jackass: the Movie’, 2002.
‘Cheaper By the Dozen’, 2003.
‘Epic Movie’, 2007.
‘G-Force’, 2009
‘General’s Daughter,1999.
Detroit Rock City, 1999.

But never, in my life have I seen a funnier adaptation of the music: animated misheard lyrics. Give it a shot, it’s only 2:38 of chuckles.
