hardinparamedic: Manama? Sounds like a Latin American gay porn flick.

Funny you should say that, as Mah Nà Mah Nà was originally composed for an Italian adult film...

Wow that's funny. I wonder how many people caught on to that back when that was aired. And how it didn't turn into an outrage, unless it did and I still just missed it.


Here's the scene, I'm calling it NSFW out of an abundance of caution; while this scene isn't explicit, the film is.

GODDAMMIT! A work buddy of mine is in Bahrain right now, doing a Navy ship tech assist. He was twisting my arm to go with him, but I wanted no part of visiting those damm barbarians. Jeez. Well, I hope he manages to switch his flights around so he can stop by Paris to visit Morrison's grave. He's a big Doors fan...

FnkyTwn: It's true that the song is from an early (1969) Sesame Street (obviously the original is Italian), but it was used in an incredibly popular Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper commercial in a national ad campaign in 2007, and that's when it really caught on. I'm old, and I grew up on Jim Henson, but even I don't remember the Sesame or Muppet incarnations of the song. The Dr. Pepper commercial though was hilarious, but the last time I went looking for where I heard the song 'recently' it only turned up the originals.

TLDR: Here's how most people know the song


Funny, I only know it from Sesame Street, Muppets and Benny Hill but don't remember that commercial at all.
