Crooning political satirist Randy Rainbow served up a very special video with a "Grease"-Inspired 50th birthday wish for CNN correspondent - and brother to New York's governor - Chris Cuomo.

Declaring himself "a Cuomosexual - and not just for your brother," Rainbow's lyrics, set to "Beauty School Dropout" from "Grease," recounted that the singing satirist had "just got a subpoena from your other wife, Cristina, to make this special birthday gift for you."

Added Rainbow: "This one's just for you, my Chris. I hope you like it - I don't usually do birthday parties."

Praising the cable new journalist as the best in "the biz," Rainbow crooned, "Don't Anderson or Don Lemon" - two openly gay CNN anchors - "but you're my favorite show. So thanks for all you do - and happy big 5 - 0!"

Rainbow shared the video in an Aug. 9 tweet.
