So far, the title of “undisputed heavyweight champion of quarantine” is a dead heat between Andy Frasco and Trey Anastasio. On the one hand, Trey is pumping out new, original songs at an unprecedented rate. On the other, Frasco is churning out hilarious all-star videos that make self-isolation a bit more bearable.
Frasco’s latest submission is a jam-packed parody of The Beatles’ “Let It Be” written by his bandmates, Andee Avila and Shawn Eckels, and performed and sung by Eckels. Frasco then got to work creating a video to go with the amusing tune featuring characters from across the improvisational spectrum. In what could be construed as a parody of Gal Gadot‘s cringe-worthy “Imagine” video, Frasco enlisted the help of Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), Ryan Stasik (Umphrey’s McGee), comedian Kyle Ayers, G Love, Twiddle keyboardist Ryan Dempsey (and puppet Officer Frodjo), Todd Glass, Nicki Bluhm, Sammi Garett (Turkuaz), Greg Ormont (Pigeons Playing Ping Pong), and many more. Throughout the parody of the Let It Be classic, the ensemble touches on hot-button quarantine issues like Uber Eats delivery, Netflix’s Tiger King, running out of toilet paper, and, most importantly, running out of weed.
Check out Andy Frasco and Friends’ “Let It Be” parody, “Quar-an-tine”.

Frasco once again closed the video with the parting words so many people, like all the youngsters still going on spring break in Florida that the song mentions, need to hear: “STAY THE [F—] HOME.”
