Watch Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Wiig Completely Butcher ‘Let It Go’ in the Best Way Possible

So bad, yet so, so good

There’s this song you might have heard of, from a movie you might have heard of. It’s called “Let It Go” and it’s from the movie Frozen. Sound familiar? Well, it seems there are exactly two people left on Earth who may not be familiar with this tune: Kristen Wiig and Ellen DeGeneres.

On The Ellen Show this week, the comedians both claimed that they weren’t acquainted with the song and then decided to tackle it in a blissfully ignorant performance which mostly consisted of them fumbling through the lyrics, waving their arms and gesticulating in unison. The best part is when Wiig briefly breaks character to assert, “Kids don’t what fractals are.”

It seems pretty much impossible that they really had never heard (or sung) the song before, but we’re willing to overlook it. For the sake of comedy.
