A holiday musical ode to Sony and 'The Interview'

Sony's The Interview will come out on digital platforms, which inspired a musical moment

On Wednesday, Sony announced it would release the embattled comedy "The Interview" on a host of digital platforms--including Google Play, Microsoft Xbox and YouTube--and make it available for rental or purchase from Christmas Eve through the holiday weekend. The timing had us feeling musical.

My Favorite Pings

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Light Rogen movies and Worldwide Web hittin’s
Digital downloads tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite pings
 
Bold-colored Sonys and big-theater toodles
Day and date releases and openings that are futile
Flag-wavers that make silly movies right wing
These are a few of my favorite pings
 
Execs in slight messes with blue tinted hashtags
Sorkin emails that leak and quickly form rashes
Rudin insults that soon make Angie go zing
These are a few of my favorite pings
 
When the Kim bites, when the GOP stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite pings
Like Kim Jong Un’s face that melts into rings
And then I don't feel so bad
