Does anyone still remember the viral sensation from 2007, Harry Potter Puppet Pals? Yes, exactly that one with the rhythmical tic-toc and the names of the characters that are sung by the puppets.
Well, by enjoying some Otto-Compilations in the evening I stumble across an old sketch by Otto Waalkes in what must be from the 1970s, in which he is using the same rhythm and counting names of former dictators.: Dubček, Mao Zedong, King Kong, Idi Amin, Saddam, Honecker, …
It seems that Otto’s sketch is also based on older material, and the Harry Potter Puppet Pals had the same as inspiration. Does anyone know what the original song is?
