Monday’s How I Met Your Mother had drunken Ted singing “We built chip city…we built chip city on all your dough!” Then, Thursday’s New Girl gave us Schmidt’s rendition”We built this Schmidty…we built this Schmidty on Tootsie Rolls!”(based on Schmidt’s still chubby since third grade size, I’m assuming he meant the candy, not the dance) Is “We Built This City” coming back?
Why the sudden random love for Jefferson Starship? Not that I object, mind you, I’m just curious. The song was a part of Jason Segel’s The Muppets movie, so that may connect to Ted’s awesome version performed amidst the Russian Mob. Other than that I’m drawing a blank. Quite a fete for a song once ranked as the number one “worst song of the 80s” and the “single worst single ever constructed“!
