If by chance you’re not one of the five zillion and forty five people who have viewed the YouTube sensation voiced by SNL’s Jenny Slate, you owe it to yourself to watchMarcel the Shell With Shoes On and Marcel the Shell With Shoes On Two. Besides being oddly funny, Marcel also offers a few nuggets of life wisdom.
A few handpicked gems:
“If you do drive a bug, you have to be pretty easygoing. Because you’re only gonna get to go where the bug wants to go.”
“Really what you just have to want to do is take a ride.”
“Sometimes people say that my head is too big for my body. And then I say ‘Compared to what?’”
“We won’t fight unless we’re provoked.”
“That’s just how it looks right now.”
“Guess why I smile a lot? Uh, cuz it’s worth it.”
