First! Also, I was the cameraman.
Second! The singing is great guys :)
I think you should just start coming out with albums, what with O’Douls and Totally Crazy and the Food Rap and the answering machine songs…
PS: I love Adam’s falsetto in the background (is that what its called/who it is?)
Anand — you’re right on who it is, but not what it is — I’m not technically singing in falsetto, just in a high register. And thanks!
I went in with completely low expectations (sorry, but your last few videos were only midly amusing) and now I’m smiling because I adored this video so much (and it’s so TRUE!) and I’m sorry for doubting you. You’re amazing, OE. I’m off to watch this again. And again. And maybe again. And then I think I’ll stop. For tonight.
Oh, and I loved Adam’s joyful singing in the background. I didn’t really notice him until the second viewing. Let’s see how it goes for the third.
Awesome sketch guys. Although, it kinda looked like he was drinking wine for breakfast…..not sure what that was about, but very enjoyable!

*Two Thumbs Up*
Just awesome, one of your best works as of late!
What a nice surprise.
This is probably your best video since Totally Crazy.
Keep it up guys.
Yay!! I love this. Yay Julia!
can we get the mp3?
three appendages up Olde E. I personally love your music themed videos, and this one hits a special place in my heart.
Amazing, I freaking loved it. Please more like this, the last couple really weren’t that great.
Brendan — done. Check it out above.
ZOMG!!!! at first i thought this was just gona be a cover, but OMG DID YOU GUYS PULL IT OFF!!!! wow all i can say is that if this isnt a MAJOR turnaround from the crappy Nature stinks and Mr. Clean then i dont know what is… THIS MADE MY DAY!!!! This is going up there with the applicant and gym class!!!
Was that Raphael singing? If so, I’m very impressed.
I kept waiting for the guitar solo to come in cause it was always on the verge.. but it never did, and this video was otherwise HILARIOUS!
Wow! Very funny! Keep it up.
That. Was. Incredible.
Wait for it….and AWESOME.
Sweet sweet redemption.
\\\\\\\\\\Ten points for holding out on making jokes for a full sixty seconds.
Well done, guys.
That was soooooooooooooo funny.
I love you guys. Period.
Ah, so awesome! I love the original song, but I think the Olde English rendition is better. You’re all hilarious, thank you for this. (:
Also, extreme vocal talent!?!
Wow, that was so awesome. Every song you guys do is so funny!
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, amazing! That made me so happy. =]
Adam (not that Adam) says:
Great stuff – where’s that MP3, can’t seem to find it…
Never mind, got it: http://www.oldeenglish.org/podcast/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/breakfast-at-tiffanys.mp3
This was great. It has the classic OE feeling to it, when you can watch it over and over and laugh your socks off every time.
And Julia is really cute.
thanks for putting videos on itunes
way better than the last one. love this.
is that Raphael singing at the beginning?
if so, holy shit dude, your voice is amazing.
This absolutely made my day.
This video is my new life. I love when Raphael pops out from behind the tree and Adam playing the guitar and BOTH of their costumes. great job, guys, really.
Excellent. Perfect. Genius. AWESOME.
Julia is so cute. I love her in everything.
Dude if you guys dont release an album i dont know what ill do this was awesome definitely a step up from mr. clean. This goes number five on my top ten right under i hate nature
Raphael always seems so awkward… I think it’s hilarious… Especially when he does his nervous smile with the wide eyes and the open mouth smile with his teeth showing.
Also, you should release some of your older vids on itunes, because I can’t watch some of them on my iPod touch.
and what happened to akon calls tpain? It’s not on iTunes anymore
that was the best sketch in a long time
Absolutely amazing. You guys just keep getting better and better.
Truly great work.
this was awesome and put a huge smile on my face… Thanks for cheering me up!
Raphael and Adam, please make a cover band. You should probably leave olde english to embark on this new and exciting journey.
NO! THEY CANT LEAVE OE!
all thumbs up!
Hannah Banana says:
Fantastic! As your music videos always are… :)
Wow, this one is really great! Even better than “Cave Miners” (my previous favourite).
I said: *music* laughing my ass off *music*
So amazingly funny, I’ve watched this 30+ times by now
Wow, in the beginning I was like “WTF is this? Where’s the funny?” and then BOOM there it was and I think I wet myself a little.
i liked perfect night more but this made me smile
Tiffany Dinner says:
I can really appreciate this.
Jurassic Clark says:
Well, embarrassingly enough, this is one of my favorite ‘comfort’ songs. I’m glad that you could make it that much more enjoyable for me.
I’ll never lose faith in your ability to make me smile.
Eternal Element says:
One of your greatest videos. I noticed that all of the shots of Raphael had a green van on the left side except for a random few, but that would have been a little hard to avoid. :P But as a few other people have said, you guys should definitely make an album with all of your songs on it. As a long-time fan of your work, I would buy one.
That was the hottest shit i’ve ever listened to <33
now THAT’S more like it!
i’m sorry i ever doubted you, oldeenglish. ’twas my mistake.
i agree with eternal element. this has got to be one of the greatest videos you guys have done. phenomenal.
I like a lot of the songs you guys have done, but this one is easily #1 and is easily on my top favorite OE performances of all time.
Aww man, now I actually have to watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s so I can judge Mickey Rooney’s offensive portrayal of an Asian stereotype for myself.
Keep up the good work, OE!
Yes, now you guys have gotten back on track! ;D
I love this music video more than any of the other ones on here, it’s just that awesome!
Haha awesome. Thanks for making me wiki a 47 year old movie. I have been enlightened. :)
i love the music themed ones- never a bad one in the bunch. i’m all for more music ones.
Since I came out of a time machine from 1873, what song are they making fun of?
Brilliant cinematography – particular at 1:21-1:22, wherein the head turn is constant in both shots. Bravo.
I was watching this video at a friend’s apartment while our girlfriends were getting ready, he heard the song up to where it was just like Breakfast at Tiffany’s then he heard the funny parts started and we had a moment of “she’s totally like this” and when they came out we silently agreed to stop talking about it.
(Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Deep Blue Something, I think it is, Chuck.)
Adam playing and singing behind the girl when she’s getting pissed off is hilarious.
I love the sleazy grin and “cheers” gesture Raphael gives at the end. Way to subvert an otherwise relatively innocuous song!
Needs more triangles.
for realsies guys you should come out with a cd or a dvd or something we can give you money for
I agree with mike, i’d buy it.
is that the girl from the First Date sketch?
cuz it looks like her.
but good sketch pretty much.
It was okay
Yeah I think that is the girl from the First Date.
both are great sketches though.
Looks and sounds awesome!
Really matured…well, for a sketch comedy group.
I like the song, the original and this one.
I can’t look at her face without thinking “nose sex”
I love the part where she says you make a big deal out of practically nothing and Adam is singing it behind her too…
Is this 16mm?
That poor Bethesda Fountain, why won’t you leave it alone? It’s been embarrassed showing its face in public ever since Raphael Gets Stood Up. By the way, I thought it was hilarious. Mickey Rooney’s offensive Asian stereotype, that is. Your video is simply just too brilliant for words.
lol, love it!
when it started off by the train track it made me wanna watch the boxcar video
oh and i loved the dancing in the fountain!
Fantastic! This sketch is great on so many levels! Julia is perfect the whole way through, I love shot of the last two seconds where she angrily snaps the food from her fork. Great job, OE!
And for the record, I want to know what type of ectoplasmic seepage Adam swam out of in his first moments of life.
Because he is God.
Adam is God.
There, I’ve said it.
I miss Ben! Great job tho, guys. Enjoyed it.
Dude, you guys are really good singers. And you’re hilarious, too by the way.
Way to be the ladies man Raphael 8D awesome job
I hate it too Novak.
Aunt Judy says:
This was wonderful! And I was so happy to see Julia. She was great in this. And Raphael, of course, was amazing. Hi Julia! I miss seeing you.
So awesome!! mp3 please(?)
Thanks Adam Not That Adam
LOL I just realized this is the same girl from “the first date”
Thanks Aunt Judy! I miss you and the rest of my adopted family! Hope to see you soon!
this is the best video on the internet
well done you princes of maine!
Just want to say that you guys are just AMAZING. i know you must get fan-mail like this all the time but you’ve really outdone yourselves!, what with the new site, new videos – its all fantastic! well done guys – dont ever stop!
I got this song stuck in my head at work for like two days solid. Twooooo daaaays! o_0 Very very cruel.
I’m posting this after seeing the new site, btw. I like the new default video size. Much more comfortable viewing, and also I get to pick up on things I didn’t see before.
Like Julia’s little arched eyebrow of curiosity after Raph broaches the subject of “Rooney’s offensive portrayal”. That is an amazing little expression on Julia’s part and yay I get to see it now! Woot!
Keep it up guys, please!
Though I’ve followed you guys for YEARS now, this is by far my favorite…so unbelievably hilarious and, as always, SMART! Keep up the good work guys because you keep getting more and more fans!
haha that was so unexpected. it was funny enough to see you guys covering breakfast at tiffany’s, but i knew there had to be something more. loved it.
Love it, love it. Absolutely hilarious.
PS The liquid in the wine glasses is at different levels throughout the film.
The Mixter says:
Good job Ben. [:
Perfect representation of relationships set to bad music and real conversation, honestly i know genius has been used in above comments but this is really on a different level i’ll be sure to send this to anyone with a sense of humor
Caleb you and your friends are awesome. This shit had me dying!
Well that was the embodiement of all that is good and pure in this world. Loved it.
i’d totally buy your merch if you had it
Ovation guitars are nice! Which model is that?
I love what you guys do.
What format was this shot on? Is it 16mm?
Tom, this was shot on DV.
Bahahahahahaha. I love these videos.
Wait, wait, wait, just wait one minute. Are you telling me there’s no mp3? WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?!
Fan #543668631 says:
So clever and hilarious, one of so many great songs.
Some guitarist says:
hey… man this thing is awesome i listened it like a hundred times by now.. still.. i can’t get all the chords right.. can you please give me some hints… i desperately want to sing this thing :D
Great work. And Julia is stunning…. oh my god
Hey… I know that girl!
I keep comming back to this vid sketch and enjoying it every time, very well performed and well timed lyrics and… Punch line, I guess…
Thank you, saves my day every time. :)
amazing vid! very funny.
my new favorite online video. period.
I’ve watched this video maybe 12 times in the last two months or so and it makes me laugh every time.
wow, such a long time since i last visited the site, it was a daily habit, and it didn’t even look this new-layoutish and with the guys sitting in sexy poses every new video and you’re right it’s not that sexy!
I love olde english, it’s really been like a year and it’s still great. i’m relieved
Is Julia single? If not is she faithful? She is seriously so frigging hot.
Kate the Great says:
I’m a long time viewer and,
This is your best.
I like the facial expression when you say “film”
I’ve watched this now 20 times and it still hasn’t got old.
I love you guys
Fuckin Mickey Rooney…
Never have I seen an online movie of such epic hilarity.
Awesome job and keep them coming :D
olde english 1# fan says:
i watched this so many times that
i memorized the song. keep being
funny! 2010 videos will be awsome
A. Ashley Hoff says:
Absolutely hilarious! A charming take on a great tune with …ahem…a slight addendum to the original lyrics.
what are you talking about
adam wolf says:
Really great. I can’t believe I haven’t seen this before. Good job guys.
The Todd says:
I have to write a paper comparing the novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s to The House of Mirth, and I’m trying to find a way to reference this song.
it was ok i didnt really like it
I think it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen and I make a point to watch it at least once a month. You guys should’ve gotten a show, not WKUK (although they are also hilarious, just not as).
cinema entertainment says:
I personally love your music themed videos, and this one hits a special place in my heart.
I just watched this again, and it still makes me laugh!
Also, I just noticed that you guys went through a period where, in every musical sketch, someone is either dressed as a butler or Justin Timberlake.
Can’t wait for that movie thing!
It took me some time to realize what I love so much about OE and a few of the words I’d use are “smart” “imaginative” “unique” seriously this is great stuff there’s noone out there that does your brand of comedy. thanks for keeping it and please continue to keep it smart, imaginative, unique, and well, OE! :) rotten apples on those conformists, yay for this non-conformity! and look at the massive and very positive response! :P i too can’t wait for the film or whatever is upcoming.
oh also “clever” and “original” and “genius” and “one-of-a-kind” and yeah i downloaded the MP3 haha. great acting in this one and singing too.
What’s wrong with oriental stereotypes?
Liking the page and video. Keep it up.
