Good Morning…Here’s a Gospel Song About Breakfast
Minister Cleo Clariet and his fiancé Katherine Lane are shown singing on “The Kay Bain Show” in Tupelo, Mississippi in May or June of 2004. Clariet passed away from congenital heart disease on Dec. 13, 2004. Lane said he would have been thrilled to know his song is now entertaining so many people.
First off, bravo. This is amazing, honestly amazing. Everything about this is why the internet is perfect. To all you aspiring viral video producers…if you want your shit to go viral, follow this lead. Rest in Peace Cleo, you were truly one of the best allegorical breakfast gospel singers in the world. The verse with nothing but breakfast cereals? Genius. Having your fiance with a terrible (terrible!) haircut sway back and forth and whisper the words? Brilliant. But light bread? Beef stew? What the fuck were you eating for breakfast, Cleo? Come on man, of course there won’t be any need for a breakfast when you’re clogging your arteries before noon every day. Guess Cleo knew he didn’t have many more breakfasts left in him, so he left us all with this Breakfast/God Song, and for that I’m thankful. RIP Cleo, hope you have some grits and oatmeal with Jesus!
