Schnappi in English on the Ukelele

August 12th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 11 Comments

My friend Richard is spending several months traveling over in Europe, and has been spending the past few weeks visiting relatives in Germany.  Needless to say, his young cousins were amazed with his shocking familiarity with Schnappi, and even more amazed that he had friends at home who were asking him to bring back any and all Schnappi merchandise he could find.

In his research, Richard stumbled across this video.  The mans choice of attire and choice of song can’t possibly be a coincidence, so I ask you, if you happen to be reading right now, to come forth you mysterious MST3K fan!  Identify yourself and claim credit for your masterful English language rendition of Schnappi with Ukelele accompaniment! (a command given for the first time ever in history)

Maybe the offer of free RiffTrax can entice him out of his lair of anonymity?

    This is absolutely adorable. Come out of hiding singing man!

    Also, you’re a bitchin’ ukelelelist.

    So, uhm … would you believe me if I said that was me? Maybe?

    This man MUST be found and given some sort of medal.

    first that little nasal creature from Canada, and now the impossibly beguiling Schnappi song [in English] wander the hallways of my brain.

    we love you, Conor!

    That is awesome. Send that man a free Rifftrax.

    In perusing Schnappi-related videos, I think you’d better take a look at this:

    Two Asian girls, dancing to Schnappi and making bizarre faces.

    I, Tube is definitely in the making.

    Sorry it took so long to respond, but I just saw this post while conducting a Google vanity search.

    It is indeed me singing and playing the English translation to Schnappi! And the MST3K shirt is no coincidence. I discovered the Schnappi theme song in the Film Crew’s favorited videos on YT and decided (after 18 viewings of the cute little thing) to translate that sucker and record a video myself.

    And if the offer of a free Rifftrax is still on the table, YES, please!
