Check Out the Funny "The Food Ditty" From Our "Final Destination 5" Friends -- Emma Bell and Ellen Wroe

Previously, I interviewed the lovely ladies Emma Bell and Ellen Wroe for "Final Destination 5." This was in 2011.

Then, in 2012, both fun actresses created a Kickstarter campaign to create their passion -- a spoof of rap/jazz/R & B parody mocking the "dichotomous viewpoints of the American health food craze and obesity obstacle." They called it "The Food Ditty." Back then, they said, "It will be a quirky, quaint and quite idiosyncratic video much in the vein of Ellen's first spoof rap video, The Gatorade Rap."

Well, they were successful in raising $15,000 for their project, and they recently unveiled "The Food Ditty" on FunnyorDie.com! They were even featured on the home page of the comedy site! Yay!

Congrats to Emma and Ellen otherwise known as Smellen Wroe :happy
