Keenan Cahill's been posting his lip-sync videos to youtube for a while now. Last month he had a special guest star step in (a little over a minute in).

I could have sworn I'd seen this on here before, but a search turns up nothing. Regardless thanks for posting and reminding me what a great song this is.

Fiddy is growing increasingly endearing.

I've always been mystified by Keenan's popularity. Not because I'm opposed to lipsyncing or think he's weird; he's just a really really poor lipsyncer.

There's a few of these, including one with a news crew - the kid's infectiously fun, one of those people you're laughing with, not at.

That is the WGN Morning news crew, they run his stuff all the time. Best newscast in Chicago.

More about Keenan.
Would love to know the backstory on this.

What an amazing age we live in, where a dwarf with very marginal lip-syncing abilities can become internet famous doing exactly that, to the point where famous people pay tribute to them.

I agree completely. Before this moment in history, fame was always so well deserved.

Back on topic, it's really cool that 50 Cent does stuff like this.

I'm old and cranky and can't be arsed to listen to enough of this song, but is it about fellatio or is it about someone being fond of him? Both?

I am not here to explain hip hop to you.

My opinion of Fiddy just went up quite a bit.

Ya know, for a man who grew up in the ghetto, was dealing drugs at an early age, and shot multiple times, he is like a big internet hug.

I mean, this is not the the first time Fiddy has done something like this.

God bless you, Mr.Cent.

Finally, a Caucasian answer to Gary Coleman and Emmanuel Lewis...

And it's not the lipsyncing so much as the skillful eyebrow arching - looks like he's 6, acts like he's 26.

I came here to comment about how terrible his lip syncing was, but he's so disarming, I'll hold my tongue.

And Keenan was alright, too.

Back on topic, it's really cool that 50 Cent does stuff like this.

Keenans videos are getting 10 and 20 million hits a time. The 50 Cent clip will undoubtedly exceed that, coupled with replays across all media as Keenan enjoys his 15 minutes. I don't doubt 50 is a decent guy but it's very obvious why he's done this.

Maybe you're right. Although, if it's obvious, then why isn't it commonplace?
posted by ODiV at 2:43 PM on December 17, 2010


That second guy is a much better lip-syncher.

The hypnotic waggling of his eyebrows lures me into a trance-like state.

Fake And Gay.

It's a greenscreen, in a studio, and it's not even really 50, and CGI. It was all done by a couple of guys in After Effects.

(I love YouTube comments)

This guy's lip syncing reminds me of my friend Jim in the Army who only lip synced when he was drunk (which, to his credit, was most of the time) and so poorly that grown men were moved to pity.

Sometimes when I'm listening to Daft Punk in the car, I lip sync various sounds like the waoh-waoh-waoh-waoh-waoh in Da Funk.
