Anderson Cooper 360 Features MAN MAN

Yesterday, CNN’s AC360 devoted the RidicuList segment to the Man Man song “End Boss,” an homage to host Anderson Cooper’s colleague, Wolf Blitzer. Host Anderson Cooper, obviously thrilled, played the song from the band's new album On Oni Pond, noting that the lyrics feature Wolf on a series of delightfully surrealistic adventures. “Wolf crisscross dying lawns, sniff hard on dying lawns.” and “wolf cuts loose in the barrio, lemon vodka mixed with churros.” Cooper then unveiled a photo of singer Honus Honus wearing a tunic emblazoned with images of Blitzer’s head.

In response, Honus Honus commented, “Anderson, you’re welcome at any Man Man show and if the Wolf tunic hasn't been stolen I will happily let you rock it. I'm sure you'll look much more handsome in it anyway."
