You oughta know how to ‘Morissette’ your significant other to tears


Actress Lisa Rieffel discovered a foolproof way to drive your loved ones insane.

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.

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.

Others have pointed out just how amazingly Rieffel nails her Morissette impression.

Meanwhile, Dunn has been responding to his wife and other folks on Twitter in the best way possible.

Sounds like Dunn really “oughta know” better by now.
