Craig Robinson from 'Hot Tub Time Machine' sings 'Jessie's Girl.' Hear it now!

craig-robinsonWhat is it with time travel movies and music? Michael J Fox introduced the ’50s to rock’n’roll in Back to the Future. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter Wild Stallyns-ed it up in the Bill and Ted movies. And who can forget the “Dr Zaius Rap” from Planet of the Apes? No, wait, that was actually on The Simpsons. Regardless, the point is made! Music and time travel films go together like a horse and carriage. Or like Craig Robinson from The Office covering “Jessie’s Girl,” which is what he does on the  soundtrack to the new comedy Hot Tub Time Machine.

We’ve got our hands on an exclusive preview of Robinson singing the Rick Springfield pop-rock classic—and you can hear it below. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.

    Rick? It’s Marvin. Your cousin. Marvin Springfield. You know that new sound you’ve been looking for? Well listen to this.

      LOL! Most excellent!

    I don’t recall when I first noticed the comic genius that is Craig Robinson, but one day I realized that he was increasingly popping up in movies that I absolutely love.
    And this is exactly why I enjoy Craig Robinson… That’s some funny stuff right there!

    I love Craig Robinson, never more than when he played keyboard and sang on The Office.

    This song represents all that is unholy and foul with the criminal One-Termer from Chicago. Both should be removed from rotation.

    Love this song! Love Rick Springfield! I guess this song was covered for laughs, but Chris Robinson has some decent vocals. What is with this song popping up in movies lately? It was also done in the “guitar hero” scene in Couples Retreat.. I think many men are closet Rick Springfield fans! come out fo the closet guys.. Rick still rocks!!

  • cathy V

    This is great!!! Awful, but great! Renee D., I’m a huge Rick fan and went to a few shows last year and believe it or not there’s always at least one guy there who came alone who’s been a Rick fan since way back when. Who knew?!!

  • BillabongGirl

    LOVE it!!!!!

  • Kelly

    oh god how do i love this?

  • Kellie

    It seems both so wrong and yet so right. Rick is still the best, but Craig’s got a good voice.

  • dAL

    he is better

  • lisa

    Sorry craig but its crap. Nowhere near as good as Rick Springfields original verson.Im a mad Rick fan and this is just an embarrasment to him I think.

    • phantom

      Get over yourself and laugh a little.

    • AJ

      wow, nobody cares, its a joke anyway. Your taking this way to seriously and you need to get slapped. If i knew you or knew who you were. I would do it myself

  • John
