Ironically, it's not as "Easy Listening" as the original.

I watched about two minutes of it, then I got bored. Those guys are really close.

1.55; I just realized how parts of the harmony was taken from: Baa Baa Black Sheep

I didn't even make it through the goddam headline.
 
2012-08-04 05:18:52 PM  
I can do this. (sees screen cap of guys in video) I'm out.

The only Somebody That I Used to Know that i will acknowledge belongs to Elliot Smith.

That's what she said.

Does never clicking it count as negative seconds?
 
2012-08-04 05:53:23 PM  
Correction, subby: Six guys on a ukelele. Which makes it a little cooler, but still...
 
2012-08-04 05:56:23 PM  
Im sick of the song. Its not bad, i dont hate it, im not gonna be an anti hipster hipster... BUT, it has spawned some damn hilarious parodies.

I was more interested in the sidebar story about Jennifer Aniston's nipples.
 
2012-08-04 06:08:16 PM  
I remember the first time I heard that song on the radio, my only thought was "This is the worst Sting song I've heard in a long time".

I've avoided it since.

Seems more like 3 guys on a Ukulele, 2 guys tapping it and one guy singing.

Can I interest you instead in a version of "Call Me Maybe" by swimsuited Miami Dolphins cheerleaders?

Yes... yes you can.
 
2012-08-04 07:09:36 PM  
Honestly, not bad for one ukelele.

I'm sorry Pentaxian, and I'm'a let you finish, but this is the best Call me Maybe parody of all time
 
2012-08-04 07:27:15 PM  
This made me think of a Sasha Grey scene I once watched.
 
2012-08-04 07:41:21 PM  
It's only gay if the balls touch.

Dear Jerk: I can do this. (sees screen cap of guys in video) I'm out.


How was your Chick-Fil-A today?
 
2012-08-04 07:50:28 PM  
I liked it myself. Good job and an interesting execution. What's not to like?
 
2012-08-04 08:07:48 PM  
Risking being flamed...I was actually pretty entertained by this. Then again I still go to 7-11 late at night to look at shiny things.

I am with SnarketyFarker. I dug it. The Star Wars one was a riot though -

nice find, Subby

Yeah, thats better than this one.

The one time that I'm actually interested in a CRJ tribute and it's inaccessible for some reason.



Aaaaaargh!

Atomic Spunk: This made me think of a Sasha Grey scene I once watched.


Because of the ukelele?
 
2012-08-04 09:11:54 PM  
That was fantastic.
 
2012-08-04 09:15:32 PM  
I was really hoping this was going to be something from UOGB, but it was just six assholes and a single uke.
 
2012-08-04 11:49:23 PM  
The uke makes the song bearable, so I got all the way through.
 
2012-08-05 12:37:23 AM  
It amused me.
 
2012-08-05 07:59:59 AM  
I watched the whole thing... it was awesome :-)
 
2012-08-05 09:12:00 AM  
Too bad the audio is prerecorded. @3:16 the guy on the right misses a pluck but it's clearly in the audio.
 
2012-08-05 09:21:40 AM  
Whenever I hear that song, I think of the Nairobi Trio.

No, you cannot have a link. I'm on my cell. You Google it.

Same thing I thought when I heard it. Unfortunately my sisters love this stupid song and have a need to play it whenever we get together. I usually hide in the bathroom until its over.

I liked it. But then, I am easily entertained.

LOL
And here I first thought it was a Peter Gabriel song from the 80's that I'd completely missed. I keep expecting Kate Bush to sing one of the verses.

Came for Walk Off The Earth.
