Have mercy! If you haven’t heard, last Friday marked the most anticipated reunion in fictional television band history – Jesse and the Rippers, Jesse Katsopolis’ band from 90’s sitcom favorite “Full House” – appeared together on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” If you grew up in the 90’s and aren’t sure what I’m talking about, this may spark a memory:
My number one celebrity man crush has always been and will always be John Stamos. And if I’m young enough to make that creepy, I don’t care. He is just perfection. No one can pull off a low-cut Indian-inspired blouse or shirtless overalls quite like Mr. Katsopolis.
The Twitter account @jesseandtheripps tweeted this, along with a photo of Jesse in a leather vest, after the news of the reunion was released:
John Stamos himself also tweeted an Instagram video of himself singing the theme song to “Full House.”
Alright, I know you’re dying to see the performance.
In celebration of fake television bands, here are a few of my old (and newer) faves:
Did anyone actually know what “Killer Tofu” was about? I certainly didn’t – but that doesn’t mean it’s not one of the most memorable fake songs of the 90’s. If Jimmy Fallon can somehow get The Beets holographically embedded onto the stage for a reunion performance of “I Need Mo’ Allowance,” that would be impressive. Because “I need mo’ allowance. Why? Because I do!”
Zack Morris was another 90’s television hottie. In one episode, Zack dreams about the band reuniting for a concert featuring “Friends Forever.” Swoon. Also, Mark Paul Gosselaar (that’s Zack’s real name) appeared on Jimmy Fallon as Zack Morris in 2009.
How would we have ever learned our calculus without 2gether’s “U + Me=Us”? I actually thought 2gether was a real band for a while, but apparently they are spoofing boy bands? I don’t know.. their music seems pretty legit to me. They taught us all to “Say it- don’t spray it. I want the news, not the weather.”
Sound off loyal m.blog readers: what’s your favorite fake band?
