I enjoyed the Fulsom Country Blues one.

Shot a man in Folsom County, just to watch him die.

Enjoyed these. Turn the sound off and try to follow along and I would never get them but for the title of the youtube.

My husband yelled from upstairs asking me WHAT I was watching just now.

The video where Natalie Imbruglia joins David Armand on stage was geolocked for me. Here's one that worked for me.

So if I understand how the gameshow works, the contestants on stage wear headphones that block all sound so they can't hear the song. Those must be some really effective, super-potent headphones because it sounds like the song is being played at a moderate-to-high volume for the studio audience.

Serious question: Where can I find one of those headphones? Our office is moving to an open-plan design in a couple of months and I'm truly dreading it.

Oh, my. This is by far the dumbest thing I have ever enjoyed so thoroughly. Where's the petition to have him do this for "Beat It"?

Well that made me like Natalie Imbruglia about 200% more.

Heloise9: “Don't Look Back in Anger
Not sure it's the same video since it was geolocked, but this “Don't Look Back in Anger” made me giggle.

That man is a genius and a perfect illustration of why we need a universal basic income. I want him to spend all his life doing this and to never have to work.

I mean, I know he is actually a professional comedian, but I specifically mean I would like him to be able to devote the rest of his life to making obscene gestures to music. Should he so wish.
