We welcome an unusual VIP to the studio (he couldn't make it to a live taping).

Crash Test Yummies

In 1993 the Crash Test Dummies had their biggest hit, Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm. Given the title, it's baffling it wasn't about food. Well, that's about to change, because we rewrote the lyrics to be about classic comfort foods.
