'Ma Na Ma Na' is an earworm performance that was made famous in 1969 by Jim Henson's Muppets. Follow-up versions have kept us laughing for generations and few people will not immediately recognize the tune and the words, as well as the cultural significance. It has appealed to audiences of all ages since it began.

The McNab/Hiltz families were singing the tune at their Thanksgiving family weekend at a remote cottage in Parry Sound, Ontario. The cottage is situated on a remote island that has a small cottage and a hand built log cabin. They decided to get the video camera rolling and involve the whole family, including the Great Dane and the Beagle. It turns out it is these two that steal the show.

The families delivered their lines from the boat, the shore, the rooftops, the kitchen and from behind trees. There were more outtakes than clips that made the final edit and the laughter could be heard all the way across the lake.

The final Ma Na Ma Na is given by Doreen, the matriarch of the family. She inserts herself in the middle of the final take with her own unplugged version of the song and a twinkle in her eye.

You can see that a lot of the performance is ad libbed and unrehearsed as the participants burst out in laughter at themselves and at each other throughout the recording.

Join this family as they give it their best and you will be sure to be laughing along with them!
