This is basically an inside joke, but my friend, Ben Wise, and I were trying to figure out the name of a band that someone had played on Turntable.fm. We came up with all kinds of amazing fake names, but his suggestion of Flampy had me in hysterics.
So, I wrote this song today as a helpful reminder of what that band was most definitely not named.
“OK, so, in this clip, uh, I play a zookeeper, and the animals in the zoo talk to me to give me relationship advice. … In this scene, there’s a gorilla that really wants to go to T.G.I. Friday’s, and in this clip, I’m takin’ him to T.G.I. Friday’s for the first time.”—Aziz Ansari, explaining his supposed role in “30 Minutes Or Less,” on “Conan.”
