Will Ferrell & Molly Shannon Debut Their Tribute Song To Prince Harry & Meghan Markle [VIDEO]
If you are trying to figure out the best way to watch the royal wedding this weekend, you might just want to tune into the coverage from Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan, who just debuted their new tune “They’re Gonna Make It Happen” on The Tonight Show.
Now, if you’re wondering, “Cord and Tish? I have never heard of these people. Those are ridiculous, obviously fictional names,” well, you are onto something there, as Cord and Tish are actually a couple of characters played by Saturday Night Live alums and all-around funny people Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon.
Ferrell and Shannon will be live from London on HBO this Saturday for their latest Cord and Tish special as they report on the union of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. They debuted the duo earlier this year when they covered the Rose Parade for Amazon, after which they totally went viral.
“They’re Gonna Make It Happen” is an upbeat rocker that kind of recalls vintage Ike and Tina Turner. Cord and Tish performed the number in front of a montage of British icons, like Ed Sheeran, Austin Powers, and an English bulldog.
The Royal Wedding Live with Cord and Tish! will air on HBO live this Saturday, May 19 at 7:30 a.m. ET/4:30 a.m. PT, with a repeat later that night at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT. And yes, Tim Meadows will be back on hand as a correspondent!
Watch the song above, and check out Cord and Tish discussing their coverage plans with Jimmy Fallon (in which they also cover the “Yanny/Laurel” debate and Cord reveals that he thought the Harry & Meghan Lifetime movie was a documentary) below.
