Nicole battles her dad in beatboxing. He disputes the outcome of the first battle, so Nicole leaves no doubt in his mind after the second one. posted by cashman (38 comments total) 68 users marked this as a favorite
 
That is sheer joyousness.

Terminator analogy:
He is the T-800. She is the T-1000. She was newer, faster, stronger, and better.

And, if this was battle rap:
First battle? BODYBAG. Second battle? She put his BODYBAG in a BODYBAG!!!

Oh man was that fun to watch and listen too. I'm completely charmed by/in awe of both of them, both for the beatboxing prowess and the obvious joy they're taking in the competition and each other's company.

I never had this much fun at my dinner table with my dad. Nicole ain't fuckin' around.

i really love the way that she knows she's gonna smash it, but she's still giving him the grins and headbobs as he hits a nice run. this was wonderful.

Wow. She creamed him, and then some.

I hope this gets shared enough for some label to go "Hey, you, here is money. Make records."

That was really awesome!

But I bet long car rides with those two get kinda headachey after 4 or 5 hours

Dammit. Now, the swell of pride I feel the first time my daughter beats me at Catan will be tempered by comparison with this.

I'm amazed the table in front of both of them was so clean when they were done!

She is amazing! I love how he's old school traditional, and she's doing old school, dub step, everything.

It's when she takes her glasses off that you realise: shit's about to get REAL.

Just once in my life I would like to be that good at something and feel that confident that I was going to be that good at it. Her facial expressions and body language as she listened to her dad were priceless.

They look like they have a very sweet relationship. This was nice.

Excellent, although she doesn't hit the deep bass note quite as hard as Obama.

Whoa. I was expecting to be disappointed after all the high praise here... but I was totally transfixed by her performance. What a great musician.

Yeah, those Terminator comparisons aren't right. She is amazing, and better than him, but he clearly knows that and is so genuinely happy it! This is great!!

P-P-P-P-Pwnage! (But it is really, really sweet to watch. Just what I need after today.)

That made me forget to take the cheese package out of the box before dumping the mac in the boiling water.

Hope you are happy.

is the body beatboxing? or is she beatboxing when she catches the body?

you kids with your crazy slang!

The only part of this I can do is the interspersed drawn out fart sounds and that isn't something my wife thinks is a feature.

The facebook link in the OP is dead. Here it is on Youtube.

I was out for a pint last night. Dude at the next table was playing this video on his laptop and I was like "OH MY GOD YES ISN'T SHE AMAZING" and then all the servers came over and their jaws dropped.

The link that double block and bleed posted is on someone else's YouTube and Nicole has asked them to remove it. Here's the video from the OP on Nicole's own YouTube channel.
