Yeah, that title hurt my head to write, but this song hurts it more. It’s just what it looks like: a clown singing The Who’s Pinball Wizard to the tune of Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues. I’m not here to judge, but you probably didn’t know you needed this in your life. You did. And once you hear this, like me, you won’t hear either song exactly the same way again. It’s weird. And that clown can sing, actually.
It’s from Puddles Pity Party, what can only be described as an eclectic YouTube channel. But there’s something going on here, it’s kinda awesome in a weird way.
I saw this on Boing Boing too, which is no surprise by now.
I know, I need to be working. His final sad little sigh at the end killed me.
This made me laugh far too hard….
There’s just nothing that makes me laugh harder than Nikki’s hiccups. Fifteen years now, same reaction…
Just ask Nikki, it’s one after the otter until they are all gone.
One difference would be that this otter is cuter than I am. The otter difference is that he is neater than I am and makes less of a mess.
This video is hypnotic and amazing. You can easily imagine these helpful benign robot helpers doing amazing things to help humans. You can just as easily imagine them busily wrapping your struggling form with numerous thin unbreakable nylon ropes…. but maybe I have seen too many action movies. Still, way cool tech and a clear sign of things to come.
