Jenny Slate sings as Marcel the Shell with Shoes On about Marcel’s mother

Forgive David Letterman for not nailing the exact sequence of events that transpired during Jenny Slate’s tenure at Saturday Night Live. For whatever happened back then eventually led to a wedding weekend with Slate, her husband Dean Fleischer-Camp, and a voice that launched videos that launched a children’s book series and maybe even a movie?

We’ll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, see this: It’s Jenny Slate singing as Marcel the Shell with Shoes On, a song about Marcel’s mom. God rest her soul.

Roll the clip!

Slate says more videos will appear on “the Internet,” so we all look forward to that.

UPDATED 10/20/14: Here is the third Marcel the Shell video, uploaded Monday morning!

And pick up one or both of the Marcel the Shell books:
