‘The Daily Show’ finds greatest song ever written about Detroit

The Daily Show took on the Detroit bankruptcy, and part of the bit was an amazing song called “Detroit” from the 1967 movie The Happiest Millionaire. Even Alanis Morissette couldn’t fathom the irony. The song is more commonly known as “Land of Golden Chariots,” which is probably the most comical description of the city I’ve ever heard. If they light enough of those chariots on fire, maybe they can catch up to Flint as the worst place on Earth.

Per usual, The Daily Show actually made some great points about the bankruptcy in between all the jokes.
