Out of the Bag: The Tote Bag Parody Song - Tote Me Maybe

Our first tote bag parody.

A few months ago, I was humming along to Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and sort of twisted it into "Tote Me Baby." 

Fast forward a few months. A local songwriter and performer, Addi Twigg, tweeked the lyrics and provided the vocals. Addi has done a series of parodies including Steeler Ladies (Single Ladies.) A video editor who works with Marvel Comics got involved and we are please to announce our first parody video - "Tote Me Maybe"

The goal of the song is to put a catchy tune in your head to remind  you to remember your tote bags. And in this very dark time in our nation, we hope to bring a small smile to fortify & sustain those of us who struggle to reconcile ourselves to the loss of so much innocence. That's similar to the struggle we face each day as we literally fight hunger. 

Please take a listen and let me know what you think. It is meant to be lighthearted and the original song had some nonsensical lyrics so we followed suit. I hope you will enjoy.

The Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project collects new and gently used tote bags for distribution to the region's food pantries. We are a project of the Thomas Merton Center.

Thanks, Erin. It was a fun experience collecting the photos and working with the video editor and the vocalist. We have more planned ...
