Musical Phonetic Punctuation

Victor Borge was a fabulously funny man and a talented pianist.  I've posted his bit "Phonetic Punctuation" before here on Communication FUNdamentals, but I just found this related video with Dean Martin. The two do "Musical Phonetic Punctuation" where they punctuate the phrases of the following songs.  At least Dean Martin tries.  Victor Borge is so funny, Dean Martin has a hard time keeping a straight face!  Enjoy! More Friday fun with communication from your friends at Art of!

    You sure got me laughing with this clip, JoJo. We grew up on Victor Borge, and I’ve always loved his punctuation gags, but this one was new to me. Thanks for posting!

    Wouldn’t that change our musical experience in choir? LOL
