Midday Music Break: Look Out California, Huell's A-comin'!

With a vibe akin to a Bollywood-meets-High School Musical casting call, KCET's Huell Howser made this oddly charming music video for his rendition of our unofficial state song, "California Here I Come."

Taking a queue from another speak-singing man whose initials are H.H., Howser tackles the familiar lyrics with a Henry Higgins-esque patter, with the spirit of Lucy Ricardo and friends crossing the Golden Gate.

The video is from his episode of his KCET show, and that episode re-airs locally on Sunday, November 14th if you want to see how the whole darn thing came together, and will go state-wide in January. Or, you could just trip out on our favorite Huell video.
