Daft Hands*, deft hands, or both? You decide. *YouTube; safe for work.

I give him extra points for thinking this up, though the opening seconds fall flat.

I just got flicked off roughly 15 times, AND I LIKED IT.

I'm sure she'll go on to become a rock, paper, scissors DOMINATOR!

Saw this on videosift, watched it again here, loved it both times. Worth letting it warm up.

That is really great. Clever idea well executed. I wish she'd had somebody film it who could have kept it from going all blurry, but this is my favorite YouTube video since OK Go's "A Million Ways."

Somebody has waaaaaaay too much time on his hands. I mean that in a good way.

Actually, these are guy's hands. Just saying.

After the first few seconds, I was thinking "sheesh, anyone can get on Youtube these days."

But then the fingers broke out. I found myself giggling uncontrollably by the end of it.

Digits. Knuckles back and front. Verbs twice.

Having started to watch this and after browsing the comments I am now torn between going back and suffering through the opening past where I gave up, to see why pasty hands flipping me off are worth a look, and saying screw it and moving on with my life..... uhmm….. yeah…. I’ll pass.

I came for the band, I stayed for the song, I enjoyed for the cleverosity.

MapGuy -

It's like 3 minutes long. Just watch it.

Electrius : Actually, these are guy's hands. Just saying.

You sure? They looked like female hands to me as well.

Either way, that was pretty damn impressive. I actually wonder if this person has some kind of background in sign language. The movements are very precise (for the most part) and it reminded me of some of the deaf people I've worked with.

Also: I would never have thought of this. Ever.

Woah,

Mapguy, I almost didnt make it past the first 10 seconds, but I stuck it out and was happily rewarded. I say go back and watch it. Its worth it.

One of my favourite videos on YouTube by a long way. Pure brilliance.

Performed in real-time, or in slow-mo and then sped up to match the song afterward? Just seems extremely difficult to get right in real-time without, as someone above said, way too much time on one's hands.
