Tom Green - "The Bum Bum Song" (1999)

Had to throw up the classic.

"Lonely Swedish (The Bum Bum Song)" is a novelty song by Canadian comedian Tom Green, created in 1999 for The Tom Green Show. When the show moved to MTV, Green released it as a single, encouraging visitors to download the song free of charge from his website. The music video was filmed in Seattle, Washington, home of the Swedish Medical Center, from which the name of the song is derived.

The song's promotional video was a great success on Total Request Live. It was retired the day it reached number one on the countdown, after just five total days on the show.
