Back in November, a guy who goes by Finally Aaron “lost it a little bit” and sang his own gospel remix of the Golden Girls theme song, “Thank You for Being a Friend,” ad-libbing vocal flourishes and generally getting as excited as anyone has ever gotten over an ’80s TV theme tune. The 15-second snippet he put on Instagram burned with the heat of a thousand fire emoji, and the streets (of the internet) demanded more.
Months later, Finally Aaron has finally delivered his biggest gift: He did the whole song.
“I’ve warned many people that this would be UNDERWHELMING..buuut Its the full song..its finished,” he wrote on YouTube. “LIKE IT OR NOT ..im just glad I kept my word lol!”
I think Aaron may have underestimated how much people wanted him to do this. Do these folks seem underwhelmed to you? Nah.
