RIP: Annette Funicello

Annette Funicello

Annette Funicello–Mousketeer Prime and notorious beach partier–has died at age 70. According to the Disney mothership, Annette (because if there was ever a lady who it was okay to call by her first name, it was her) “died peacefully from complications due to multiple sclerosis, a disease she battled for over 25 years.”

You can have any tribute you like. But for us, we would like to think that she has simply jamaica ska’d into the sunset to the great Beach Party in the Sky, like in the video after the jump.

Whoever thought to pair Annette Funicello with Fishbone is a freaking genius.

Rest well, Annette. Thanks for everything.
