In an effort to lend a helping hand to all the half-assed parents who CBF reading their children’s favourite bedtime story to them, GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus has done all the work, reading the children’s classic almost to the end, providing plenty of NSFW play-by-play commentary along the way.
If you thought Christopher Walken reading Goodnight Moon was creepy, then you’re in for a shock. The below video, recorded for rock and metal site Loudwire, is the monster every child and plenty of adults fear lives under the bed or within the bedroom cupboard that’s been left suspiciously ajar.
Of course, few nightmarish beasts are this informative and well-spoken when they emerge from their hiding place, though most are as foul-mouthed.
Having not heard of the book previously (that part seems genuine, sadly), Oderus Urungus struggles to grasp the concept of cows jumping over moons and bears sitting in chairs, claims he slams as “bullshit”. The vocalist doesn’t buy into the story about happy backdrops either, claiming no-one he knows has a bedroom like the kid in the book.
We don’t recall the line “goodnight fuck-suck-ass-dick-lick-shit” being in the original version of the book, either, so expect some adlibs while you enjoy.
