He's Back, Doing the Climate Mash!

Halloween Rock Legend Records New Version of 'Monster Mash' to Fight Global Warming

Bobby 'Boris' Pickett Records New Take on Holiday Hit in Flash Movie Starring Bush, Cheney and the Oil Industry

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- "Monster Mash" -- the song that defines Halloween -- is being brought back to life again today with the help of the original recording artist and a new Web-based appeal to fight global warming. The song and a new Flash movie, both available at http://www.climatemash.org , ask the public to tell their elected representatives in Washington that they want action on global warming.

The "Climate Mash" was recorded by Bobby "Boris" Pickett, co-creator and vocalist on the 1962 hit "Monster Mash." The Flash presentation features well-known Halloween horror characters based on photographs of President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, members of Congress and oil industry executives.

"Our goal here is to make sure that people understand that one of the scariest things happening this Halloween is the Bush Administration and Congress refusing to deal with global warming in meaningful way," said Angela Ledford, director of Clear the Air. "This is a fun way to spread the word about the threat posed by White House inaction on global warming, and to remind people that they can speak up and be heard."

"Global warming is a huge problem, and Congress is acting like a bunch of zombies, just sleepwalking through it," said entertainer Bobby "Boris" Pickett. "President Bush is even worse. We are feeling the effects of global warming now, but even as these become more obvious, Bush just keeps fiddling while the earth heats up."
