Often (and currently) injured Patriots wide receiver and presumptive Wes Welker replacement Danny Amendola was the subject of a humorous skit recently on Boston sports radio WEEI (available throughout southern New England, including 105.5 FM out of Springfield) when not one, but two sports radio talk show hosts took their shot at Jimmy Fallon’s Tebowie-esque karaoke brilliance (see “In Honor of Ex-Pats Player Tim Tebow, Jimmy Fallon as Tebowie,” Free Sport, 9/4/13) by offering an Amednola (“A-M-E-N-Dola!”) spoof of the classic Kinks song, “Lola.”
Of course, the Kinks’ song was most famously spoofed by the most famous musical spoofer of all, Weird Al Yankovic, who one day ate too many Wicket snacks and then recorded “Yoda” on his (aptly titled?) Dare to Be Stupid album in 1985.
In both cases, the themes of the songs involve someone not appearing to be what, or who they are. “Your eyes will deceive you,” quipped Jedi master Obi Wan Kenobi, “don’t trust them.” Indeed, indeed.
