Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie seems to have been cast pretty perfectly, with a voice lineup that includes Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch as George and Harold, Nick Kroll as Professor Poopypants, and Ed Helms as the titular underwear-bearing hero. The same holds true for the artist behind the movie’s theme song, because that was an absolutely perfect pick. If you had to think of one musician to create a theme for a film about two crafty kids who turned their principal into a delusional and barely-clothed superhero, “Weird Al” Yankovic would be one of the first to come to mind. He’s the one who did the song, and as you’d expect, it came out as a fantastic ode to underwear (via Entertainment Weekly).
What do you think of the song? Give it a listen above and let us know what you think, and then revisit our feature about why Captain Underpants has been so great for fostering the creativity of children for years.
