    Default Elephant Town Ukulele Campaign

    It is my dream to have every YouTube ukulele player cover Elephant Town.

    If you are in the dark as to what Elephant Town is, feast your eyes on little Tia's sublime song. I seriously think it's genius.

    This post will be updated with each cover added to the list.

    One tiny suggestion - please don't make fun of Tia. She's the bee's knees, and I'd hate for her to think that people are making fun of her.

    This is a brilliant idea. Still need to make my naked song campaign video, and I'd rather not combine it with a song written by a 3-year-old, but when I'm in recording mode expect to see something ridiculous from me.

    They're all snipes. Usually Seeso snipes them. He just tried it but didn't get it. HA! -sukie

    If I only had recording capability, and if the song weren't a couple of octaves above my vocal range....I'd do it, too!

    When we did it yesterday, I was totally oblivious as to what it was and I couldn't stop laughing. Thanks for letting me be a part of it Seeso.

    The C# chord (if that's what it really is) is truly sublime.

    Thanks a lot Seeso, I guess. I've finally come out of my shell and recorded my first YouTube video. Be kind!
