This one’s for Brad.
If you haven’t had your fill of Internet Weirdness today, Leonard Nimoy’s “The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins” is sure to top you off, yessirree:
The only thing better than one William Shatner? Four William Shatners, one of whom is a giant head,
singingperforming Elton John’s “Rocket Man”.
(See also Spoken Word Slim Shady, a Futurama classic.)
Sometimes pursuing something earnestly is so earnest that it wraps the whole way around through self-parody and back into earnestness. For instance, Sonseed’s “Jesus Is My Friend”:
I first saw this video when it was passed along by my pastors, each of whom was taking friendly wagers as to whether it’s merely really, really bad 80’s Christian popska, or whether it’s so bad, so cheesy that it simply must be a modern a parody. If you guessed “parody”, well, aparently you’re wrong. Either that, or it’s a very well coordinated viral campaign.
In any event, enjoy the video, and good luck getting the song out of your head.
