Mourn the Patriots’ loss of Darrelle Revis with this parody of a King Missile’s ‘Detachable Penis’

 

In 1992, New York City art-pop band King Missile released “Detachable Penis”, an unlikely spoken-word alt-rock hit about a guy who loses his penis and seeks out to reclaim it. The song has a happy ending, as the narrator eventually discovers his penis for sale by a street vendor near St. Mark’s Place in Manhattan, and for $17, he’s joyously reunited with his dick.

The song has lived on in relative infamy, and now 23 years after first showing up on the MTV overnight shift, it has crashed the rivalry between the New England Patriots and New York Jets.

Why? Because “penis” rhymes with “Revis,” and there’s no better way of lamenting the Pats losing star cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Jets than to parody the King Missile classic.

 

Doing the honors down below is Big Jim Murray, the former WFNX radio jock who now has a pretty sweet gig as headlines anchor for the Felger & Massarotti show on 98.5 The Sports Hub.

This is some stellar work, and we’re pretty sure you’ll have “The Jets have signed Revis” stuck in your head for a while, maybe as long as it will take for the Jets to get back to the playoffs.
