"Stand By Me" is a song originally performed by Ben E. King in 1961, and later released in 1986 as the title song from the movie of the same name, which starred River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O'Connell.
In 2010, the song was performed by Big Mean Carl in a viral video. Dressed as a bunny, he sings the song to attract some rabbits, then smacks them with his oversized carrot and eats them. However, the bunnies, still alive and well in Carl's stomach, start singing the song, much to Carl's annoyance.The Muppets Stand By Me(01:44)
