Many of us have spent countless hours slaughtering the hordes of enemies in video games who get in our way. We snuff them out of existence in a heart beat, yet all they were doing was performing a task someone else ordered them to do. Those goombas and piranha plants are someone’s mother, father, son, daughter, brother, or maybe even sister, but we never stop to consider that.
Matthew Taranto, who writes the online comic Brawl in the Family, cares about all those dead enemies and their families. To celebrate his 200th comic he’s actually written a song dedicated to them entitled “Ode to Minions.” It’s a heartfelt tune about all those hard working bad guys who are simply trying to work a 9-to-5 day job to put food on the table.
Come on inside to watch the “Ode to Minions” music video. You’ll never look at bad guys the same way again.
While “Ode to Minions” was written by Matthew Taranto, it was performed with the help of his entire family, including his dad, mom, brother, and girlfriend. If you are interested in more of his work, you can visit brawlinthefamily.com and view his other 199 comic entries. Trust me when I say they are worth a look. I personally can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.
