We're pretty sure that someone could come up with a very funny joke in which a hillbilly, a raccoon and Aretha Franklin walk into a bar. But we're just confident that it wouldn't be quite as hysterical as this video, which stars a hillbilly, a raccoon and Aretha Franklin (sort of).

Hannah Montana body spray.


Or in Mark's vernacular, Hannah Montana coon repellent.
