"Cool Jerk" is a popular song written by Donald Storball and originally performed by The Capitols. Released in 1966, it reached the number two position on the American R&B chart and number seven on the pop chart. The backing track for this song was actually recorded (secretly) by the Motown house band The Funk Brothers. The Go-Go's, Todd Rundgren, Human Sexual Response , The La De Da's and The Creation have covered the song. Todd Rundgren did his version in an odd time signature (7/4), giving an obviously jerky feel to the song. The Go-Go's covered the song for their 1982 album Vacation, and later re-recorded it for their 1990 album Greatest. The song is remembered as the song that the character Uncle Frank (Gerry Bamman) sang in the shower in the movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. A version of the song with different lyrics ("Do the Cool Whip") is used in Cool Whip commercials. A recording by Ricardo Ray featured in the film Donnie Brasco (1997).
