One stereotype about Christian musicians – and lord knows there are plenty – is that they’re too self-serious. When you’re singing about the healing power of Christ, yeah, that can be an easy trap to fall into. When the topic at hand is Desmond’s marketplace barrow, well, it’s a lot easier to get goofy.
That’s just what MercyMe does in their latest Cover Tune Grab Bag video. The Contemporary Christian Music sextet enlists tourmates Jars Of Clay, Matt Maher, Thousand Foot Krutch, The Afters, and Lecrae to jam through the Beatles‘ “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.” The hootenanny jamboree drags them down a long hallway with dancing, clapping, and a whole lot of fake mustaches. It’s almost as fun to watch as it looks like it was to make. Check it out.
