I thought for sure that this was going to be a 13th Floor Elevators video.

One girl and a cup.

That was amazing.

(And I can't believe it, but I'm going to repeat a Youtube comment as funny: "The internet has made me wary of girls´╗┐ with cups, but this is awesome.")

She has a great voice, but there are a lot of versions of this. I've seen so many go by now that I'd like to see people adapting the cups techniques to other songs instead of doing this one over and over.

I'd like to see a cups version of this:

The cup thing! Let the flashbacks of theatre summer camps begin.

Yeah, swift, it looks like my link broke. Thanks.

I'll see you the 13th Floor Elevators, and raise you one Carter Family.

I've missed this trend.. thanks for the morning diversion!

Wow. She has a gorgeous voice. And hand eye coordination that I could not duplicate in a million, billion years.

I missed this too -- love it. Now I have something new to do in cafes while I'm waiting for my order!

I was taught how to do the cup thing on a high school trip to Spain. It's actually a drinking game, and if you mess up the pattern, you drink. I think. Memories of that night are a bit hazy.

Well at least she doesn't have a ukulele ...

Annoying, but at least she's not ruining the 13th Floor Elevators.

That was so cool! I love her singing and that nifty percussion with the plastic cup. Had no idea there was a whole playing around with cups as percussion and the You're Gonna Miss Me song. This young kid is delightfully good without any pretension. No make-up, no fancy anything, just plain and excellent singing. She's got a wonderful voice, naturally, an ease. I hope she's discovered by somebody who develops new talent.

See, I was planning on posting a comment like the one that's two above this one, and then I watched it, and ended up feeling like the comment just above this one.

If you like this, Tune-yards takes this sort of thing to another level. For example.
