As they are wont to do, The Good Wife ripped their case of the week in last night’s episode straight from the headlines. The show took on the case of Jonathan Coulton vs. Glee. (In case you missed it, here’s a handy recap of that disaster.) The point is, in order to simulate the case, the show wrote a knock-off of Coulton’s famous parody* of “Baby Got Back.” The parody of the parody, “Thicky Trick,” then proceeded to play, by my conservative estimate, eleventy billion times over the course of the episode. But this music video of the cast, crew, F Murray Abraham and Coulton stand-in Matthew Lillard dancing around on set makes it all better.

I know! You thought F Murray Abraham would be the worst dancer but, my god, check out those mom dance moves on Julianna Margulies. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say that tight-fitting blazer was probably restricting her shoulder movements.


Either way, Alicia and Will end up looking like the most attractive suburban parents to ever embarrass their kids at a school function. Christine Baranski is, of course, a gorram professional and Matt Czuchry aka Cary Agos? He ain’t bad at all.


*I’m not a lawyer, so I may have used that incorrectly. Jury’s still out, I think.
