Little Debbie, Little Debbie, I'm A Comin' On Home

Camel Walk (1996) by Southern Culture on the Skids.

You'll see from the video that the song was on the sound track of Flirting With Disaster, starring Ben Stiller with Mary Tyler Moore, Tea Leoni, Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin, the story of a touching search for a young man's true identify.  Actually, it's a bizarrely funny comedy.

Of course, Ben Stiller went on to reach the pinnacle of his career as part of the ensemble cast of DodgeBall,  one of the ten best movies of June 2004.   While Stiller is stellar and Vince Vaughan outstanding, it is the magnificent performance of Rip Torn as Patches O'Houlihan that elevates this movie to a cinematic Mount Everest.  The life lesson embodied by "if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball" should be passed on to all our children and grandchildren.
