I've seen (had corneas scorched would be a better description) this video around a year ago. I think it was one that had its 2:15 of (sh or f)ame on Facebook.

The lack of any kind of funkiness in that solo is amazing! This performance is on par with the song bank in my 1982 Casio watch.

I'm afraid I didn't get ten cents of that virtual dollar.

I knew I should not have watched/listened! Right now I'm using TheraTears for my eyes and it is hopeless for the ears! Thanks for sharing, though!

Made it 45 seconds. Then I gouged out one eye. With the remaining eye I read that there was a solo later, so as a sort of masochistic self-abuse I continued the run until 1:37, as a result of which I pushed sharpened chopsticks through both eardrums. I feel safer now. I'll probably look better after I take the chopsticks out of my ear canals.

I made it as far as his backup dancers.

While that was just bad, this one is so bad itís great. A true classic. I once took my daughter to Walmart and loudly sung this while walking the store. She literally has not gone back to Walmart with me since. That was about 8 years ago. smile

At least the dude is actually singing. This one is lip-syncing (you can't go "oh oh oh oh" and make it sound like it does while smiling, unless you happen to have some serious ventriloquist chops...):



To me they're both "so bad they're good". Thanks to YouTube, they'll live on for at least the life of Google...

The bad lip-synth makes this even more of a classic!

From a Finnish TV parody show according to YT comments. Did the KB player do a little eyebrow thing at 5 sec? The bass player is reading the chart and is rock solid.
