Herman Cain ‘Imagine’ There’s No Pizza

Herman Cain sings an ode to pizza to the tune of "Imagine."

Herman Cain sings an ode to pizza to the tune (more or less) of John Lennon’s “Imagine.”

Presumably, this is some sort of Godfather’s pizza convention from back in the day. I have no idea why he’s wearing a white choir robe.

UPDATE: For additional amusement, #HermanCainPizzaJams, in which people come up with pizza-based revisions of popular song titles, is now a trending topic on Twitter. “Eat Another Little Pizza My Heart” and “Live and Eat Pie” are among my favorites.

  1. This has to be from Cain’s Godfather’s days, just from the way he looks.

    In related news, I can’t believe I listened to the whole thing.

    @James:

    I suspect that this might have been part of a larger Gospel/Preacher theme that Cain was doing. He’s also recorded at least one Gospel album. And “preaching” is an important tool that he continues to fall back on (so much so that Juan Williams cited it as a reason the AA community might support him).

    @mattb:

    There is a difference between preaching and posing.

    Even as brainwashed as they are supposed to be, they can readily see through him and his stepin and fetchin for the Republican party.

    Herman Cain is a poseur and thats why the AA community won’t support him.
