The Full House Parody

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

The crew of our beloved and nostalgic Full House had decided to take both a serious, yet of course comedic (because what else would they really do?) stance to quarantine, and it’s something that shouldn’t be missed at all costs. All of our favorite and familiar faces from the iconic ‘90s show have come together to create an epic parody of their original theme song entitled ‘Full Quarantine’. Not only is it the ultimate throwback that you surely need right now, but it’s also the perfect dose of inspiration we all need to continue to stay home.

John Stamos posted the exciting parody on April 8th to Instagram, captioning it, “#fullquarantine Stayhome/Staysafe/Stamos Unlike #FullHouse, this will go away.”  The hilarious parody that the Full House crew put together touches on some of the harsh realities of staying home alone, while also relating to some Full House themes.   The video starts out with a short clip of the original Full House intro, including, of course, the theme song.  After we see that Golden Gate Bridge, we then see John Stamos in the bathroom, attempting to get whatever is left in his pretty much empty bottle of hair gel.  As he notices the camera, he stops and smiles – touching on the fact that Uncle Jesse (played by Stamos) is totally fixated on always having the perfect hair. 

 

The parody then turns to Bob Saget – or better known as Danny Tanner. He’s seen trying to squeeze out the last bit of hand sanitizer, rubbing it all over his face as though it’s aftershave. He’s also seen trying to sanitize a mop handle, depicting the fact that he’s always been up-tight about cleaning.  Saget actually recently Tweeted throughout his time stuck at home that he’s becoming the character of Danny Tanner – constantly cleaning and sanitizing everything he can possibly get his hands on at home.
