There was just something catchy about that Denny's commercial--the one that first aired during the SuperBowl, and featured an animated, singing banana/octopus creature perched on a stack of pancakes. The message of the commercial--"Isn't it time for a serious breakfast?"--implies that anyone in their right mind would rather have a Denny's Grand Slam breakfast than a singing Nannerpus breakfast, but I just don't agree, and I've been itching to make my own Nannerpus ever since. I finally got around to it this morning, and I am pleased to report that Nannerpus was every bit as delicious as he was photogenic.
After creating my own Nannerpus, I did a little research and discovered that Nannerpus has attracted a small but avid cult following. He has his own website, complete with links to a couple of artists who have immortalized him, as well as a musician who completed the Nannerpus song. All very clever, but my hands-down favorite is the YouTube poster who went to the trouble of dressing an actual, real, live baby up as Nannerpus and creating a video. You rock, "gonnalaughatyou," even if your kid does grow up to require years of therapy!
