The Less Sexyback
September 3, 2019 3:40 AM   Subscribe

The Less Sexyback is a superbly groovy mashup of Timbaland's "SexyBack" and Tame Impala's "The Less I Know The Better". It seems to have appeared on the internets somewhere around March, with no definitive provenance, like a gesture of grace from Spiritus Mundi. Then over the course of several months, the beautiful beast slouched towards YouTube, to become the soundtrack for a wildly infectious video edit of dancing memes. All references without referent, here for your enjoyment.

Wow, that dancing meme edit was joyful, my only criticism is that it could have done with being a 3 minute rather than 30 second edit! Thanks for sharing!

Masterful. Though I’m a bit sad that tame impala bassline lost some of its punch in the process. Probably for the best; it would be too sexy, unprotected listeners would risk infection.

Feels Like We Only Go Backwards is still one of their best songs and never fails to make me tap my foot and nod my head.

I recognized most of these memes, a really good edit. Thanks for sharing. I'm listening to Tame Impala now and it's because of this post.

Don't have much to add, but this is great.
