Today Mullet Girl is attempting the Cups song by Pitch Perfect. If you search this song on YouTube you find tons of tutorials teaching you how to do it and even more attempts from YouTubers around the world working their cups. I would never be able to accomplish the Cups song on my own because I have a serious inability to keep rhythm with an instrument (or even just clapping along) while singing at the same time. Could I do the cups? Sure…how hard can those be? Can I learn the song? Sure I sing by ear. But can I do the cups and sing the song at the same time? Not in million years. Mullet Girl on the other hand…well she can do anything because she’s passionate and in love:

This week I’m featuring Angela from Jumping With My Fingers Crossed! She chose a hot topic last week and tackled the hoopla the Oscars caused when host Seth McFarlane made what some feel are offensive jokes and songs at the expense of women.

    Bravo. Thank you for introducing me to the cup song. I guess I’ve been living under a plastic cup. Enjoyed watching some of the other links yesterday. And for a while, I thought you had on a coonskin cap. Good grief.

    Love the “cups” video! My daughter has been driving us NUTS over here with the cups song. I guess it’s just one of the things we must surpass until the next fade comes around :0/ At least she’s a girl and she isn’t “looking like a fool with her pants on the ground”!! ;0)
