Venice Gondoliers Sing for Obama – Again
If you didn’t get enough of the first video of the Venice gondoliers singing their politically bastardized version of “Volare” when I posted it before, you’ll be pleased to know that they’ve released a follow-up video. Now, don’t be expecting a new song, or anything – they’re perfectly comfortable to rest on their laurels and reprise their big hit. But this time, there’s a chorus of Americans who live in Venice who have joined them for the video shoot.
I’m told by my friend Johann, who lives in Venice and who knows the gondoliers in the video, that they’re loving their unexpected fame. I’m hell-bent on meeting them the next time I’m in Venice. Maybe by then they’ll have a new song.
