Mamma Mia...Here We Go Again!

In an unprecedented announcement that is sending shockwaves around the world and generating enormous buzz and anticipation, the four members of the 70s supergroup ABBA have announced that they will reunite to perform a one-time only benefit concert to raise funds in support of the candidacy of Christopher Walken for President.

Speaking for the group, spokesman Bjorn Ulvaeus had this to say in a brief statement:

“Agnetha, Frida, Benny, and I are pleased to announce that we will reunite in a one-time only event in a concert to raise funds in support of Actor Christopher Walken’s bid for President of the United States in 2008.

We have long supported peace and freedom around the world. Songs such as “I Have A Dream,” “Soldiers,” and “The Visitors,” have expressed our wishes for peace while the latter two were our songs of warning during the Cold War period when nuclear annihilation seemed just around the corner and dissidents in the Former Soviet Union were pursued. Our musical “Chess” was a very thinly veiled metaphor for the Cold War and our dream of a peaceful resolution—which thankfully has come to pass. But new threats have emerged that continue to threaten peace around the world.

In 1979, in honor of the International Year of the Child, we donated all royalties from our song “Chiquitita” in perpetuity to the children of the world through UNICEF. However, these tokens of action are not enough. While we have always remained neutral politically, and have never really been activists outside the environmental realm—where Frida is doing a tremendous job—we are at a point in our lives where we feel it is incumbent on us to act for our children’s futures, as well as the children of all the peoples of the world who have given so much to all of us throughout our lifetimes.

"Mamma Mia" is now the 15th longest running musical on Broadway. "Mamma Mia" has celebrated its third record breaking year at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. We believe that we have now achieved a success in the United States that goes way beyond what we ever achieved with “Dancing Queen” or “Take A Chance On Me.” So we have decided the time is right to make a difference in the only way we can.

This performance to raise funds for Christopher Walken will consist of our songs for peace and include a brand new record. It will be televised to as many as two billion people around the world. We anticipate that it will raise enough funds in this single event alone to allow Christopher Walken the ability to take on America’s political system and emerge victorious; but more than that, we anticipate it will raise the awareness of issues around the world. It is our dream that this gesture and act will set the planet on a path of peace.”

In related news, Bruce Willis has joined Demi Moore in coming out in support of Christopher Walken. You can read the latest on Scottage’s blog Perspectives of a Nomad and you can view Christopher Walken’s political platform here.

This story is a farce, and is paid for by Christopher Walken for President.
