May 20, 2022
We don’t know who exactly Moist Limb are, but they produced an unsettling and hilarious parody cover of Wet Leg’s 2021 hit, “Chaise Longue.” Moist Limb’s version is titled “Black Throne” and comes with a video that remakes the “Chaise Longue” video in horror movie mode (hearts are eaten). “Throne Noir” translates to “Dark Throne”. We can’t find any information about who is behind this creepy cover. Watch it below, followed by Wet Leg’s original.
“Chaise Longue” was No. 1 on our list of the top 130 songs of 2021.
