Ok, so we have seen artists get involved with making songs about the lockdown and Covid-19 but kiwi bloke Jimmy Maher has taken entertainment to a new level of awesomeness.
Making Parody's of everything from The Beatles, to Green Day and even various TV Theme Tunes he has done nothing short of an outstanding job. We interviewed Jimmy and asked him why he decided to do this intense project of a parody a day? " I originally just had redemption song in my head and then started putting lyrics to it (again in my head). I decided I'd make it a parody and chucked myself in it by stating that I'd do one each day. but it was heaps of fun and kept the creative juices flowing over the lockdown!"
To make things even more fun, Jimmy decided to wear a different hat each day. No doubt about it, this man has a lot of different hats!
