Today while checking up on my college-aged cousin, I was directed to this video. She's always good for a laugh, but I wasn't really expecting anything quite like this. Truly the funniest thing I've seen from a screen in a very long time.
Marcel the Shell is the creation of Jenny Slate, a member of the Saturday Night Live cast. According to this article, she came up with him pretty much on the fly. A friend recorded her talking in this voice in a first-person Marcel perspective very late one night, then edited it down to this bit, created the video and VOILA! One of the best parts: it's also child friendly! :)
