Watch Crash Test Dummies Confess Comic-Book Nerdiness and Play 'Superman's Song' At Cafe Du Nord

Categories: Video

Crash Test Dummies' frontman Brad Roberts told a cheerful Cafe Du Nord crowd this week about the origins of "Superman's Song," which he said "kicked our career in the pants" back in '91. Yes, his voice is still as shockingly deep in real life as it was on MTV when MTV played videos, and in case you couldn't tell by the lyrics about Superman fighting Solomon Grundy, Roberts was a comic book kid. In this vid he claims to have ripped the nitpicking nerds a new one by whipping out a book he bought at age five to prove the lyrics' veracity. Then he asks the crowd to be his thesaurus. Cute.
