A video of a fun-loving married couple from Burbank, Calif., who surprised the Tonight Show’s fictional “Pumpcast News” with their made for TV rendition of two hit songs from the 1980s at a gas pump, has turned the duo into the latest Internet stars and revived the popularity of the songs.
The video, published on YouTube last Thursday had been viewed more than 7.5 million times on Monday while Bon Jovi’s “Livin on a Prayer” and the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” have been experiencing a bit of a revival because of the couple’s act. One YouTube video of “Livin’ on a Prayer” is now pushing nearly 60 million views while another of “Sweet Dreams” is closing in on 20 million views.
“Whoever you are, you can make me a star. I’m ready for my spotlight,” said Monifah, a fitness trainer, in a clip that began with her husband Will singing to himself at the gas pump, and snowballed into an impromptu and surprising Karaoke show when Stack stepped in and promised a free tank of gas.
