WORST YOUTUBE VOCAL COVER EVER OF THE WEEK: KID PRETENDS TO BE IN A RECORDING STUDIO, BUTCHERS SONG I DON’T EVEN LIKE
I don’t really know much about I See Stars, but based on their name and the music in the below video, I’d wager that their contribution to the arts is roughly on par with that of the Nazis who burned books.
But this vocal cover — which I first saw on Sergeant D.’s Stuff You Will Hate — is FUCKING HILARIOUS, so I’m posting it despite (or maybe even because of?) the utter shittiness of the band and song.
What really makes this video worth your time isn’t just that the kid is a total loser who thinks I See Stars are good. It’s that the kid is a total loser who thinks that I See Stars are good, and he went out of his way to make his bedroom (or wherever the fuck he filmed this) look like a recording studio, and he failed miserably at this goal. I can’t tell if he was actually standing in front of a green screen (probably more like a green sheet) or what, but that is most certainly not a real black wall behind him. I have never seen a mic set up that way in a studio, either, or, for that matter, a professional vocalist use such a cheap, shitty mic in the first place. And, as Sergeant D. himself points out, he is “wearing some $15 headphones (over his beanie, which is covering his ears).” In other words, this poor future forty year-old virgin just… does not… get it.
If you enjoy some good schadenfreude as much as I do, head on over to the original post at Stuff You Will Hate, where The Sarge has collected some other real vocal cover gems, too, including a kid doing one in his empty living room for no apparent reason whatsoever, and two fat kids crooning Attack Attack!
