Actress Lisa Rieffel inspired hundreds of wives and girlfriends with a new way to drive their partners crazy; it’s called “Morissette-ing.”
Rieffel found the ultimate form of spousal torment: she unrelentingly sang Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” at random, inopportune moments for over a month.
Fortunately, Rieffel collected footage throughout the month of her husband’s reactions, so viewers get to watch Dunn slowly move from intentionally ignoring his wife as she belts out the song lyrics to actually begging her to “please stop” by the end of the month.
My poor, poor husband.
I “Morissetted” him for over a month.
But let me ask you this, how the hell could I ever stop? pic.twitter.com/R6UVdjmHuL

Since the video was first shared on March 21, it has been watched over 1.5 million times on Twitter. Rieffel has already left an impact on a few marriages, with women tweeting to the actress that they’ve begun to “Morissette” their partners, too.
Thank you so much. My co-workers and I have been annoying our husbands all day and made this into a challenge. Thanks for the laughter

Lisa! You’re all grown up and making me laugh SO HARD. I may steal this and “Morisette” someone I love.

I am in love. 😍 I, too, enjoy torturing my husband in unusual ways. Never thought of this one. I’m gonna follow.
