Class III beverage alert
Please return your trays to the upright position.

This defies description. I mean, he couldn't really have been trying to sing well, could he? I can't stop laughing. It starts off uncomfortably bad, so bad it actually made my scalp tingle with sympathetic shame. Then the wheels fall off about a minute and a half in. I laughed and laughed.

Thanks for the warning. I was able to avoid irreparable damage. Barely. :)

Flo said...

OMG, Phlemmy! What in the world were you looking for when you came across this? Good thing the dogs can't hear it, or there'd be some howling going on!! Course, he sounds much better than I would at this particular moment!

MFD is singing this as a prelude at our Christmas Eve Mass. At least I can look forward to having that to wash that warped sound out of my ears out with! LOL

Looking forward to seeing you (and your snazzy new knife) next week!

Buck said...

Dang. I'd LURVE to slip this into the music box at yer local mall... any mall. Just to watch.

Peter said...

That's the kind of thing that makes me wince in sympathy, then turn it off ASAP before I get infected!


Zelda said...

I saw this the other day. I cracked up when he started "Fall on your knees."

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Please tell me this was intentional. Nobody could be so delusional, could they?

Rabbit said...

You should have put a biohazard warning on this. I'm going to rip a copy to run off the squirrels stealing the dogfood off the sunporch.

It's like listening to a slow-motion train wreck... so wonderful when it stops.

Still sing more better than me, though.

SpeakerTweaker said...

Wow. I didn't make it past 1:52. I tried.

I've heard folks deliberately try to sing badly and still come out better than that!

(Unrelated, thanks a TON for the anniversary nod! Lurve ya!)

tweaker said...

You've been listening outside my bathroom door again!

Sigboy said...

Thank you for finding my tape. Where did I leave it? Can I have it back please? I need to send it to my agent.

Overheard while listening to this:

This is Capt. Kirk singing, right?

For every minute listening to this, a puppy dies! Think of the puppies!

God save me!

Picture Silver saying the above while miming shooting and/or stabbing herself in the head, banging her head against the wall, etc.

And we both laughed until we cried.

Teh awesome, thank you!

Christina RN LMT said...

Oh, and I also can imagine this "singer" auditioning for American Idol.

Why do people who can't sing insist on not only singing, but taping themselves in the process?! It defies logic. Yet there's a record of my aunt (who also cannot sing) doing the very same!

The best part was at 2:57 into it. That'll get rid of any freakin' earworm.

Hoosierboy – indescribable, innit?

Alan – you’re welcome.

Flo – it’s vile, innit? Looking forward to seeing you at Hols’ next week, too. :)

Buck – It would be perfect at a maul.

Peter – it is a befouling thing, I admit.

Zelda – It’s majestic!

Schnoobie – me too – there were tears.

Barbara – I hope it was intentional. Whatever it was, it was a hot mess

Rabbit – hee.

Rickn8or – it’s amazing. Yes, wonderful when it stops.

Speaker – tsk tsk

Mushy – eek!

Sigboy – hee. Don’t call them. They’ll call you.

Christina – I can just hear you and Silver. It’s baffling.

Mausergirl – you need to put your aunt on YouTube for the sake of posterity and for giggles all around. We’ll love you for it!

Orange Neck – I can’t just name one spot – it’s just crashing waves of wrongness

The exaggerated adulation of singers and pop musicians has totally ruined it for people of mediocre at best talent with too much self-esteem.
In days not too long ago the appropriate public's critical reply would have been hurled old fruit and rotten vegetables - and a lesson would have been taught and another learned.

My God! I want it on my iPod to play at work!
