Baby It’s Cold Outside from Neptune’s Daughter (aka the Best Movie Ever)

I’m really tired of people talking about how this song is promoting date-rape or whatever else people say about it. Watch this video. This was the first big performance of this song. It’s playful and flirtatious (and no one is drugged… he’s drinking out of a flower pot… just watch the video).

This song is cute. And not creepy. At least not in its original context.

Also, go watch Neptune’s Daughter. Seriously, you won’t regret it. It has swimming, and 40s swimsuit designs, and fake South American polo players, and random musical numbers. All the best things.
