We are never, ever, ever, getting back together, you lying, cheating ...

Somewhere between his earlier rendition of Go the F**k to Sleep (again on YouTube, NSFW) and Radiohead's cover of Wonderwall comes Samuel L. Jackson covering Taylor Swift.

Pitchfork, 1995–present: What did we do to deserve Pitchfork?

In the last decade, no organ of music criticism has wielded as much influence as Pitchfork. It is the only publication, online or print, that can have a decisive effect on a musician or band’s career.... [W]hatever attracts people to Pitchfork, it isn’t the writing.

There's a step-by-step graphic break-down of Thom's dance (descriptions in French, auto-translated by Babelfish and alternate descriotion in English), a detailed break-down of Yorke's influences, a tumblr of 150 dancing Thom video edits and mash-ups, and a Know Your Meme page.
