New Song: "Pumpkinhead"
October 26, 2021
In the weeks leading up to FuMPFest I came up with an idea for my Dumb Parody Idea. Unfortunately I didn't have time to do anything with it since FuMPFest ate up all my free time and brain cells. But once FuMPFest was over I decided to just do it as a complete song because you can't stop me.
"Pumpkinhead" is a parody of "Pumpkin Bread" by TV's Kyle, which he wrote after the President of Television at Cartoon Network bought some pumpkin bread from a bunch of nuns and then tossed it out to employees at their holiday party. Yes, really. As with all of Kyle's songs it's a remarkable earworm.
The movie Pumpkinhead (trailer) is about a remote farmer whose young son is accidentally killed by some obnoxious teens and he summons a vengeance demon to take revenge on them. It goes sideways from there. The movie has amazing practical creature effects and has been a favorite of mine for a long time.
And the fact that I have to explain ALL OF THAT is why this is a Dumb Parody Idea.
