LEGO Beer Song is a 2006 brickfilm by Andreas Friedl and Bernhard Friedl. It is a music video set to a comedic song in celebration of beer.[1] It was one of the most widely seen brickfilms in the very early years of YouTube, and at a point was one of the top search results simply for the word "LEGO".[2]

Song origin Edit

The melody of The Beer Song is derived from a portion of the Toreador Song from the 1875 opera Carmen, composed by Georges Bizet. The original artist of The Beer Song appears to be unknown. The song first gained widespread popularity in the early 2000s on filesharing services, where artist names were often incorrect. It has been misattributed to multiple different artists including "Weird Al" Yankovic, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, They Might Be Giants, and Adam Sandler. People often try to correct this information by stating that the song is actually by a group called The Arrogant Worms, but according to the group themselves, they did not create it.[3]
