CNN’s Candy Crowley: She’s With the Band
Posted at 2 p.m. on March 4, 2013
World, consider yourself now enlightened to what everyone at the CNN Washington bureau already knows: Candy Crowley is a comic genius and game for pretty much anything.
To wit, her son Jonathan’s band, Vinyette, released a video over the weekend of her shamelessly promoting its new song, “Meatball Love Tone.”
In the video, the “State of the Union” moderator emotively explains over the phone her “Meatball Love Tone” fandom during the final moments before she goes on air.
“I’ve seen them live,” she explains. “They’ve got something. They kind of have it.”
Then the presidential moderator goes ValGirl on us and does a “like, a cappella” version of the song’s chorus.
We haven’t seen TV anchors channel the funny so well, since, well, this.
Obligatory disclosure: The author of this post is a former CNN producer and found working with Crowley to be an absolute rock party.
