“Everything Is Awesome” — the hit theme from “The LEGO Movie” — just got even more awesome. Norway’s Leo Moracchioli, the brain behind Frog Leap Studios, has recorded a heavy metal cover of the Tegan and Sara synthpop ditty, and uploaded a companion video to YouTube.
Moracchioli is a multi-instrumentalist who specializes in metal covers of pop songs both old and new. Although his music videos are cheeky, the songs themselves are never parodies; instead they’re clever hard rock takes on the originals.
The video for “Everything is Awesome” has Moraccchioli dressed up as a life size, version of Emmet, the everyman construction worker star of “The Lego Movie.” Of course this Emmet plays a black Flying V guitar — because you can’t get more metal than that — and is wicked fast on the drums, too.
The singing sequences are especially hilarious because our hero is head banging and belting out the song, but has no lips to move on his giant felt head. It’s all very silly, and so much fun.
Whether it was intentional or not, astute viewer Matt Eding noticed a similarity between Moracchioli’s vocal stylings and those of a very “dark” character in “The LEGO Movie.” “No joke,” he wrote. “My son said, ‘Why is Emmet singing in Batman’s voice?'” You can subscribe to Morachioli’s PATREON and help him fund new songs here.
