Cobie Smulders Revives Robin Sparkles For New Quarantine Version Of ‘HIMYM’ Favourite ‘Let’s Go To The Mall’

Leave it to a washed-up teenage Canadian pop star to make everyone’s day.

That’s right, “How I Met Your Mother” fan-favourite Robin Sparkles (a.k.a. Cobie Smulders) is back with a brand-new quarantine-themed version of her hit “Let’s Go to the Mall”.

As Smulders — who accompanies herself on piano — points in out the rewritten lyrics in this new version, nobody’s going to the mall, because it’s been shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the new lyrics implore listeners to “Let’s all stay home today.”

“Hey there Jessica, long time Tory, we can’t go to the mall, I’m so sorry,” she sings in the reimagined lyrics. “Keep on those jelly bracelets, and that cool graffiti coat, ’cause the mall is in our hearts, that’s what it’s all about.”

Other choice lines include “I’m gonna isolate ’til Canada Day” and “We’ll go to the mall when it’s safe for y’all,” along with a reference to Timbits and rhyming “Benetton skirt” with “Alanis concert.”

Along with making shout-outs to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian NHL icon Wayne Gretzky, the “Stumptown” star encourages everyone to donate to charities Save the Children, Daily Bread and Canada Helps.

For old time’s sake Smulders also shared the “HIMYM” video for the Robin Sparkles original — watch:
