Watch Jenny Slate Sing “Landslide” As Marcel The Shell

Jenny Slate
Move Over, Stevie Nicks

For Jenny Slate, Marcel the Shell is more than just an onscreen character — his voice makes an appearance anytime Jenny wants to provide commentary on her life without feeling like she’s talking to herself. [This basically describes the vast majority of the conversations that occur between myself and Lucca, where I do Lucca's voice responding to me, etc. -- Amelia] Yesterday, Jenny serenaded Conan with a rendition of the melancholy classic “Landslide” in the voice of Marcel, bringing a tear to the eye of every other talking shell out there.

Jenny Slate is one of our favorite comediennes and we’re huge fans of her Marcel the Shell character. This past week, she was on “Conan” and discussed the origin of the magical Marcel voice — which is almost as creepy as it is cute — and the amazing viral videos that have turned Marcel into a star. Marcel is also a book, titled Marcel the Shell With Shoes On: Things About Me, and there are other characters featured, with other voices inspired by Jenny’s grandmas. Watch as she demonstrates.

Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is becoming quite the celebrity! After garnering millions of fans with his YouTube videos, Marcel just released a book, and may soon be seen in a new TV show. He and his parents, Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp, were recently interviewed on Williams’ new show “Rock Center,” and Marcel was not shy about giving as good as he got. When Williams asked Marcel what it was like having only one eye, the little shell shot back, “Has having one nose affected you in any way?” Boo-yah.

Our old friend Marcel the Shell with shoes on is back! And he’s got a bunch of new things to tell us, about how he travels (by bug), where he sleeps (in a slice of bread) and what he’d like his nickname to be (Ace, of course). Marcel happily illuminates life on the small side of things: “Guess why the bus isn’t running?” he queries. “Because the bus is a caterpillar and it threw up!” [YouTube]
