OITNB Pays Tribute To Your Favorite Song of All Time, Kimmy Schmidt’s “Peeno Noir”

By  | 


After putting their own prison-style spin on the holiday classic “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, the cast of Orange is the New Black are back with another twist on a rather new but undeniable classic. This time it's the insanely catchy “Peeno Noir” from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, originally performed by the lovely Titus Andromedon.

The inmates at Litchfield from Poussey, Red and Alex to Crazy Eyes, Sophia and Morello all gather 'round to sing about their favorite alcoholic (and forbidden) drink – the Honey Jar aka a nice way of saying prison hooch. Just like the song it pays tribute to, this one finds new and appropriate words that rhyme with the title like “Honey Jar, behind bars/ Find the hidden cellular” and “Seduce a guard/ The guy Bennett's muscular.” So, at least, when this gets stuck in your head for weeks and weeks on end, just like its predecessor, think of it as a way to practice your useful rhyming skills.

Just as the “Honey Jar” video proves, we could all use a little more OITNB in our lives so thankfully the 4th season is finally in sight with its premiere date on June 17. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is coming back even sooner with is second season debuting on April 15. Celebrate both with your own Honey Jar, Pinot Noir or whatever alcoholic beverage you feel you could write a really catchy song about.
