Studio group thrown together to record the space race themed novelty song "Please Mr. Kennedy." on February 18, 1961.

Llewyn Davis jumps at the chance to earn a little money singing and playing on it, but foolishly turns down royalties for a higher flat payment. His pal and fellow folkie Jim is also there.

From the 2013 film Inside Llewyn Davis.

The song they sing is a reworked version of real novelty song "Mr. Custer," sung by Larry Verne, which went to #1 in the United States in 1960.
