The funniest thing you’ll see today: A death metal cover of Mary Poppins’ ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’

Mary Poppins Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Death Metal Cover

One staple of musical humor over the past several years has been to perform death metal covers of songs that are otherwise happy and upbeat. While this kind of joke has grown somewhat stale, there are times when someone comes along and does it so well that you still have to tip your cap. Such is the case with YouTube user Andy Rehfeldt, who arranged and performed a brilliant metal cover of Mary Poppins’ “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” with the help of vocalists Sera Hatchett and Thomas Hinds.

The song is actually perfect for getting the death metal treatment because it gets faster and faster as it goes along and features key changes that gradually rise upward to ratchet up the intensity. And of course, Rehfeldt also rearranged the song’s chords to change them from stable intervals to ugly-sounding augmented fourths to give the tune more menace.

For our part, the funniest part in the entire video comes when Hinds lets out a throaty grunt of the word “indubitably,” a word that has never before sounded threatening until now.

Check out the whole thing below.
