What's This?

Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Earlier today John had the song "What's This?" from Nightmare Before Christmas stuck in his head.

After looking at these Wrecks, now *I* do.


What's this? What's this?
There's color everywhere


What's this?
There's white things in the air



What's this?


It's orange and so hairy - what's the deal with those two berries? I don't care!
What's this?


[bumpahbumpahbumpabumpabumpabBUM]


What's this? What's this?
I can't believe my eyes,


What's this?
A donkey tank surprise?

What's this? A swirly mass so curly, could the purple be too girly? Should this song be ending early? No we're going 'til we hurl-y!!

What's this?

Could it be, oh could it be? Did I get my wish?

Here's something that makes sense: a meteorite bird fiiiish!

What's this?

[dumpadumpadumpadumpbaBUM]

[wheeyouwheeyouwheeyouwhee...]

What's this? What's this? There's something very wrong!



What's this? That blue thing's really long.

What's this?

It's positively crappy, and yet I feel so happy, have I possibly gone sappy? I think I need a nappy 'cuz this song is kind of rappy so I guess I'll get a frappey and go shopping at the Gappy...

WHAT.

IS.

THIS?!?



S.K., Patrick T., Chris E., Reagan B., Rebekah W., Austin L., Alex S., Kaylyn M., & Mikaela, your guess is as good as mine.

Oh, and for your continued "enjoyment" I have a special treat today: while we were writing this post, John & #1 (aka "the other Jen") kept singing it to get the cadence right. This...got really entertaining.

So, I decided to tape them.

There were a few interruptions, but overall I think you'll find their rendition...um...well...just don't have the volume up too loud, k?

"Enjoy!"

(If you're wondering what my contribution is here, I'm the one doing the scrolling. And giggling.)


Update from john: Please note that no animals were harmed during the making of this video. :)

Sarah said...

Hahaha, LOVE the video. Quite entertaining, especially with the phone convo's... ;)

p.s. sorry about the dog.

Laura said...

It's official. I'm moving to Florida to earn a spot as #2...or that annoying girl that you let hang around because she's lame, but still kinda sweet. hahaha

That was wonderful!

Skye said...

this post is AWESOME. and I haven't even watched the video yet (because I'm at work). I can't wait.

so, what song are you guys "wrecking" next? :) (I mean that in the nice way, I promise. you know, making it CakeWreck-y!)

Aleisha said...

I think the one with the long blue thing is a sideways fire hydrant. No clue about the rest of them but they're pretty funny!

Punk said...

How many of us have said "Best. Video. Ever." so far? Are you keeping count?

BEST. VIDEO. EVER.

Anonymous said...

awesome post!

and i think i can actually identify one of the oddities you posted today. i'm pretty sure that orange hairy thing with the berry eyes is supposed to be the flying spaghetti monster.

Anonymous said...

Is John British? Is that a dumb question? The "dog died" joke reminds me of a different phone joke:



person #1: Hello. Really? You don't say? Is that right? You don't say? You don't say! Well, Goodbye.



person #2: Who was that?

person #1: He didn't say.

Shelly C. said...

Wow. Thanks to the first one, the world now knows what Rainbow Brite's poop looks like. Yikes!

Brandi said...

PriceLESS!! I love Nightmare Before Christmas and you all did a GREAT job with that song. Now I need to go listen to the CD.

Seriously my cheeks hurt from the laughter. Thanks!

Julia Valdez said...

Definitely laughed out loud a few times while reading this at work :-x oops. Lol still laughing! Love.

laughing hysterically said...

Haha! That first cake deserves some major credit! I didnt think unicorn poo could be found!!

Anonymous said...

So how did they get the purple on the swirls in the "donkey tank surprise"? They are so well integrated, it's hard to believe they switched out the tip--so did they apply that after???

LOVED the video!!

Stephanie said...

audio was the best!!! that should be standard for all posts. Or at least once in a while when the mood strikes.

Rose said...

wow that video is DEFINITELY worth watching. AMAZING.

Danielle said...

"Please note that no animals were harmed during the making of this video."

Yea...no animals were harmed but I'm sure you hurt the meteorite bird fish's feelings...

J. T said...

LMAO!!! That was fantastic!!!

fruitloops said...

first cake looks like this http://images.neopets.com/items/dung_rainbow.gif

Rebecca said...

Hello. Long time reader; first time commenter.


Best. Post. Ever.

Dylia said...

Silly rabbit, that first one is a unicorn poop! Everybody KNOWS they poop rainbows. ;-D

Brandie D said...

I love it!
I'm going out on a limb and say that the one with the long blue thing KINDA looks like (if you turn it sideways) a fire hydrant... kinda... but not really. Awesome as ever!

Kim said...

You guys are awesome - love the phone call! But now I've got the song stuck in my head too!! :-)

1Kathleen said...

Did they hate the dog? That was the happiest "my dog died" conversation ever.

Anonymous said...

I think the first one is Unicorn poo, which is kinda cool, because I always wondered what unicorn poo would look like.

Kristen M said...

The 1st is clear as day Unicorn Poop.

Carmen said...

I thought singing along in my head made this funny (I went back a few times because the cadence wasn't right too!), but watching the video version put the voices in my head to shame! HILARIOUS. This is the hands down the best part of my day!

Tricia said...

That video was SO FUNNY! I wish I could say more about it, but that's it. SUCCESS with the LOLs today People!

Ellen said...

Okay, yeah yeah, hilarious post. But WTF are these?! Cake #4 is driving me crazy with it's yellow and brown deliberately piped indecipherables. I assume the swirly one just had some poorly mixed in food coloring or something.
And Sean's cake? Really? That HAD to be a deliberate wreck. Who puts a votive in a cake?! And then there's some perfectly cute little carrot cupcake behind it. Until you notice the baby carrots next to it. Is there some diabolical cake wrecker out there putting votives on "frogs" and carrots on cupcakes?!

Jason said...

I love how #1's gets a phone call during it - TWICE. *giggles*

wv - expenyz: The wreckerators clearly spared no expenyz while making those cakes.

Anonymous said...

Her dog died? And they were laughing about it? Huh?

Sarah Schwerin said...

Bwaaahahahaa! Awesomeness. Loved this post but what made me giggle most was #1's phone call! All that excitement and disbelief, then "Her dog died". Crazy!!

Stephanie said...

I lost it at "meteorite bird-fiiiish." Too funny! :D

Erica said...

I think this is my favorite posting of all time!!

Sarah said...

Hahaha, you guys aren't bad singers, but I had to laugh when she said. "Oh, I'm at Jen and John's, we were doing something, but it's dumb, go on."

bookishbethany said...

Ahh the glorious rainbow poop, delivered by the rare blue unicorn especially for you on your cake, on your birthday!

San Diego Sarah ICU doc said...

I LOVE the video! More More More!

shikishinobi said...

I was making a list of what the cakes were, but the entry was so long I gave up. But the first one looks like a unicorn came by and did its business on what might have been an otherwise average cake. An attempt to hypnotise the birthday girl (?) and a muppet excreeting the three-eyed aliens form Toy Story. Well, you asked what they were, I did my best.

jessica said...

The first one: Unicorn Poop. And I think there is a fire hydrant in there somewhere. Everything else has me laughing hysterically - and so do the two I think I identified.

WV: popatid; "Mommy, dat unicawn popatid on my cake!"

Brooke said...

One of my all-time favorite posts! You guys have GOT to do more songs! #1 & John, you have AMAZING voices! The phone calls were hilarious!

BTW, I'm a teacher and I love to pull your wrecks up and have my kiddos dissect the mistakes!

Tova said...

heheheheheheHE I love the beginning of the video!!

Runs With Scissors said...

OMG! You were singing "Popular" from Wicked at the beginning!!! You get so many epic points for that it's not even funny.

Mella said...

I think I know the story to the first cake . A dog went to a pride parade and ate a flag and then got terrible diarrhea

LauraB said...

I know WHAT that last one is but the WHY escapes me.
It's a gingerbread cookie with a cornucopia on top.
WHY? I have no idea...

Chava Malka Cooper said...

i love the phone call in middle of the song, that was so random! the whole song was awesome too...

Lesley said...

Oh my gosh that video was great. The phone call in the middle really made it spectacular! This is one of my new favorites of all your wreck blogs.

Anonymous said...

I'm fairly sure that the last one is the lesser-known Australian bright-pilled plaity-poo.

Good stuff!!

Thanks again for another daily giggle! With the work world rather unsettled, at least I have one place to turn for relief!

A million thanks

Long time reader of this wonderful blog which makes me laugh every day. But TODAY. It was funny enough with the particular, er, "food" shown (really? cakes?) but the video was priceless. I will never stop laughing.
I love you guys!

Jen, this post was marvelous! :-D

You have such a great team of people working with you!

fullnovembermoon said...

The first one is actually when Teletubbies mark their territory...see Wreck post previohttp://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2008/07/when-teletubbies-need-more-fiber.html to show "rainbow poo"....

Sami said...

"I'll teach you the proper poise when you talk to boys-!" Ooooooh goodness. You guys are awesome. I think the first cake looks like the cover of Oh, The Places You'll Go. Or like the swirl of water at the bottom of some magical toilet. Like some unicorn's toilet. Yeeeeeaaaah...

Well done all!

Hey, if the CW blog and book thing doesn't pan out for you guys, John & The Other Jen can always take their act on the road as "Cake Wrecks: The Musical".

Really great voices and superb lyrics!

flinchagainstthefire said...

This is the first time, in the year that I have been following Cake Wrecks, that I have felt compelled to leave a comment. All I have to say is:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA *gasp* HAHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA *gasp*
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! *pees pants a little*

P.S. Those "interruptions" had to have been set up; They were just TOO perfect.

Brooklet said...

Wow, this sums up beautifully what I love about CakeWrecks...

fluent, witty and delicious mockery!

You guys are stars; the cakes are just a conduit for your mad skillz :)

catchat105 said...

Thank you for not editing out the interruptions; they added a touch of humor to an already entertaining performance!

tennal said...

I dont know what exactly #1 is... but im thinking a dog got into a box of crayons...

Christina M. said...

Best. CakeWrecks. Post. EVER! My fiance and I were laughing and singing as we read it. And right after, he reminded me to feed my meteorite-bird-fish (well, actually, they're just guppies) but it lead me to have a laughing asthma attack for the last 5 minutes. Can I invoice you for that?

Liz-a-nator said...

...and maybe some wrecky material too...

erika said...

Is that 5th one supposed to be a cake version of a Magic Eye picture? Maybe if you squint enough something will make sense...

Anna-Jeannine "DJ AJ9" said...

Amazing! I seriously can't identify even a single one of these things that are being represented in cake form.

Katalina said...

Can... Can I give you all hugs?

Aliza said...

LOVE the video at the end-- #1 has a good voice, and love her dry wit. I definitely agree that this should be an occasional feature. The comment "once more with sprinkles" for your singing segments is a great title!

As for the cakes... yup, agree that the first one looks like what happens after unicorns get into the skittles.

Is something wrong with me that I think the orange hairy cake is kinda cute? Maybe I liked Monsters Inc a bit much :) The meteorite bird fish is kinda cute too!

The purple and teal cake-- somebody went to a lot of effort with that one! Very carefully done swirls... inexplicable design. Deer with antlers???? in purple and teal???

I felt sorry for Carrie until I saw poor Sean's cake. Wow, that's wreckiness at a whole new level of bad. I think that wreckerate needs to be sent to "rehad" (my WV)

BADKarma! said...

Number one is Number Two. From clowns. I'm just sayin'...

Uh....nice singing. Keep your day job,'k?

Kathy M said...

This was the best post ever! I laughed hysterically. I love you guys. It feels like we are friends with the same nutty humor. Keep it up. You make my day brighter..

PS> you need to make more videos!

Mary said...

The first one made me think "taste the rainbow"...it's Skittles poo!!!

Monica said...

My Husband and I love this site! I showed "What's this? What's this?
There's color everywhere" and he said "it's care bear poop"!

Thanks for the laugh!

Ashleas said...

oh. my. god. *laughs*

nancy jeanne said...

well, normally I'm against drug testing in bakeries, but these cakes...WTF? love the video, you guys don't need drugs either.

DSan said...

This is the greatest thing ever. In fact, it's SO great, it brought me out of lurking. I've watched this five times today when I should be working on my novel, and let me tell you, it's not helping the atmosphere! xD This better go viral, EVERYONE needs to see this! My favorite parts are the heavy sighs every time the phone rings.

Oh, and my word verification is stienced, as in, "All critics were stienced when they heard Number 1 and John's amazing singing!"

Melia said...

I love your page, but this has made my night! Thank you so much for uploading it! I absolutely loved it!

Katherine said...

OK too many comments to sift through to see if someone else has already said it, but the orange spiky cupcakey-thing looks like the "hunger" character from the weight watchers commercials. Was someone trying to be ironic??

Hawkfeather said...

we all saw a deformed dalek in the thing with the rather too long blue thing...

the spell check hates the word Dalek.
what does it know?

Melissa H. said...

The best part of the video was the one sided phone conversation. Now I want to know what they were talking about.

Anonymous said...

To fully appreciate Donkey Tank Surprise you must move a few steps away from your computer screen and squint really hard until everything becomes blurry and the true image jumps out. Try it now, then send to 50 of your closest friends and your wish will come true. If you don't, you will have bad luck for 25 to 35 years (the life span of a donkey). Good luck!

Mrs.Dr.Shot said...

I normally get a good daily chuckle out of cakewrecks, but today gave me tears of joy. Excellent work on the song!

I LOVED The song. Especially with iPhone interruptions. Sorry her dog died. Boo.

Arlene said...

Lol!!! I love the song. As for that first cake.. maybe a giant rainbow german shepherd pooped on that cake.. for that is what that looks like to me. The last pic is a gingerbread man that has been murdered by an evil poo frosting wielding wreckerator. Guess they just don't love gingerbread men :( lol.

jeliecam said...

What is this????

First cake:
What is this?
It's a rainbow?
A rainbow around a cake?
OMG OMG
It's so vivid.
What does it mean?
(sobs)

Sean's cake:
It looks like a Grade 2 papier mache project.


Love the video, but what was the phone convo really about?

Em said...

I love this post :) The video just made it so much better. And I love how in the video #1 takes the phone call, gets off and says "her dog died" then John lets out a very quiet sigh then the song continues as if there weren't an interruption....she even sounds just has happy and cheery as before lol.

Ash said...

That writing was stupendous!

Also the singing was not too shabby and John's "narrator voice" was perfect.

Natalie said...

That was the best post ever! I have loved this site for years and you always make me laugh but who knew you had the rhyming skills!

Melch said...

I love the Nightmare Before Christmas and this post made me burst out laughing! The cadence is indeed spectacular and I especially enjoyed the video rendition. Thanks, guys!

Redfroggy said...

That was awesome! Thank you for the laugh! I was quite impressed by your singing ability, btw.

Craig said...

I wonder what Rainbow Guy would say about #1. I say 'Technicolor poo.'

#4 I wonder if this wreck mysteriously caught fire shortly after Carrie saw it.

#6 Why do the isolated cupcakes have so many eyes? And leaves? What is the central object -- a firebird? It's rainbow-hued, too! What does it all mean?!

#7 I too was thinking scented candle. Or a votive candle to be lit as a prayer for peace, following what looks to have been the mother of all food fights. Used cake, anyone?

I first thought #8 was a carrot with a blue ribbon attached (some sort of county fair monstrosity, perhaps), but then I saw the (conical) hydrant. We've all seen how water drips from a hydrant; first it goes straight out to the side, then it kind of slopes down from there. The sheer realism of CCC's (heave) never commences to amaze me.

#9 is a minimalist homage to #1. The wreckist cleverly deconstructs the 'rainbow' and 'poo' elements for a SCAThing commentary on the futility of...trying to make sense of these wrecks.

I think I know what the last one is...it's a gingerbread person with a twisted colon and in order to cheer themselves up, decided to put on makeup in a most abstract manner....so then I guess it's a gingerbread woman..........although that may not necessarily be the case.....

Classic. I vote more videos. #1 really does have a pretty voice, and John's is pretty too, but in a macho manly sort of way.

This was hilarious. Co-workers think I'm crazy for cracking up so early in the morning.

Frank said...

The first "wreck" is Unicorn Poop from the game Deathspank. See the picture below or google Deathspank unicorn poop. Turns out the first one is not a cake wreck but a piece of art (or poop) depending on what you think of it.

Maybe as a gift to your fans, can you guys do a "Sing-along-blog" like Dr. Horrible?

How 'bout a Cake Wrecks Christmas special where you sing about yule logs & Turdaphants.

I think the last one is supposed to be a cornucopia on a gingerbread man, but it looks like gingerbread roadkill, tire tread and everything.

That was great, even before I heard the recording! Not that there was anything wrong with the recording...I just didn't need it because I could already hear the song in my head! But it was great!

Anonymous said...

#8 is a fire hydrant, but the picture is taken horizontally instead of vertically. The blue stuff is supposed to be water, I'm guessing. Although it's trickling out, I wouldn't want to be on fire near that hydrant! I'll be watching the video at home so I don't burst out in laughter at work. I can't wait!

Surfie said...

The video was amazing. It made an already incredible post that much better. I laughed so hard!

beloved30 said...

That was sort of a strange reaction to someone's dog dying... I guess nobody liked the dog then?

Becky said...

You definitely need more musical posts! Cell phone interruptions and all.

Also, i think I'm partial to the meteorite bird fish.

Katie said...

My 6 year old says the rocket looking thing with the long blue thing is a rocket being carried by a blue ant. (She also says that we should make a video with her singing about crazy cakes, but she doesn't want anyone to call her while she's singing).

My 2 year old was uninterested though. He just kept pointing at the carrot jockeys and saying "poor babies! babies sad!" Apparently his analysis is that the carrot jockeys are sad because they wanted to ride on boats but had to ride carrots instead. LOL

Bluefairy said...

I actually liked the orange "hairy" cake. It didn't look like a wreck to me. Of course, I've no idea what it's supposed to represent, but it looks good :)

Alisha said...

Loved the singing... and the phone call interrupting the singing... Heeeee-larious!

Beautifamous said...

I laughed harder at the ending of the first phone call.

"Her dog just died." OtherJen
"Oh." John

And they go back to singing. What!?

OK, the post was hilarious, but the video was...well, the icing on the cake. LOL #1 has a nice tone to her voice, and John is pretty good, too. I laughed at the phone call coming in the middle of the song, and #1's comment, "Well, we're doing a thing, but it's dumb." Then the incredulous exclamations, followed by, "Her dog died." And then it was business as usual, which made me laugh the hardest. Can I get that song on my iPod?

Strawberry Blogs Forever said...

I'm definitely not the first person to mention this, but BRAVO! to John singing Popular. That just made my day almost as much as the rest of the video. Also, "her dog died" *singing commences. Soooo terrible...terribly funny! And finally Jen's "can we wrap this up guys?" *phone rings* "Hello?"

li'lErin said...

bahahahha why would anyone create something so horrific for their customers!!

Jasmin said...

Wow! You guys have a great singing voice. That was pretty amazing. I'm really surprise. You guys can write and sing. Thought about writing a musical about cake wrecks? Keep up the good work. I look forward to your posts everyday.

chocolatecoveredgummiebears said...

Amazing lyrics!

Aviatrix said...

Either "the dog died" is a common sarcastic interjection in the Jen & John household, or that's a group with superb comedic coordination. There was barely time to draw breath between that bizarrely incongruous summary of the telephone call and the next verse.

Can't you PLEASE tell us what really happened?

May Destroyer said...

Walter Bean: I want an FSM cake!

The first one is perfect for clown week, as that technicolor poo could have only been deposited by a clown...

Lindsey T said...

I can see the creativity in the comet bird/fish, though it is odd. But the extra cupcakes with the leaves and the little eyes are really weird! What are those supposed to be? And WHY!!!!

Jeff said...

For the first one, considering the rainbow colouring and the swirl, isn't it a pile of unicorn poo?

Maya said...

I love them. The look fun, cheerful,n personal and made with love. Something a lot of those posh pretty cakes don't have.

If it were my birthday I'd love one of these over one of those bakery ones. At least somebody cared more about me than just to buy me stuff

I was thinking the first one might be what happens when you follow the skittles commercial and actually taste the rainbow.

My daughter and I were just looking at these, and the mangled duck looking thing made her respond like such, "I love chipmunks mommy!!!...they are so cute!!!..." I have been laughing so hard ever since.

#7 reminds me rather of a somewhat deformed and mysteriously red Dalek.

I sincerely appreciate that John started, ala Kristen Chenowith, with the song "Popular" from "Wicked".

Classic post today. Classic.

Hilarious video! Is it just me, or is the phone call taken from a scene in Devil Wears Prada? And "#1"'s singing voice sounds suspiciously like Ann Hathaway...hmmm

Amazing. I didnt think I could laugh any harder, until the song. My abdomen hurts.

Emi said...

I love the really small gap between saying "her dog died" then launching straight back into the crazy song, hilarious timing!

Haha!!
I loved the little Wicked intro to the video... It made me think that you all get to hang out singing songs from musicals, looking at hilariously terrible cakes, and making up silly songs.

I tip my hat to the three of you!
