Survivor Lego musical: “Hold Up, Bro” is a must-watch
A scene from a dramatic Survivor Caramoan Tribal Council has been turned into a musical number starring Legos, and it is unbelievably awesome, as is an all-Lego recap of last week’s episode.
Lisa Ferreira recreated last week’s episode in Legos, showing how three idols led to Phillip’s exit. It’s fantastic and kind of shocking that Legos are so effective at representing Survivor cast members and locations. (I’m particularly fond of the recreation of the immunity challenge.)
At the start of the recap, Lisa wrote that “my favourite mediums are song & Lego,” and added, “Don’t think a Survivor musical is out of the question, because it’s half-written in my head, from this season alone.” She offered teases of possible songs such as party anthem “Diarrhea Fest!”, “Piss in the Beans (I want to be a good man)”, and “The Tribe Has Spoken.”
Then she turned one of those into a full-length song and musical number: “Hold Up Bro.” That’s a reference to Malcolm’s idol move from the previous week, and the result—written and performed by Lisa and her brother Matthew Willcott—is unbelievably spectacular, from the lyrics to the reaction shots.
