If you liked this, I think you'll love 'shreds' videos: videos of guitar gods playing, with the audio replaced with some random jamming. Here's two good examples:

The original video became more interesting after I learned it wasn't the original rendition:

This provides some more historical context:

Looks like the Eduard Khil is actually a pretty cool guy, he doesn't take himself too seriously and doesn't have a problem with the parodies:

Thank you for finding my new ringtone for me.

If you're looking to turn the creepy of the original into "fun"-ny, try singing along! It's easy with the sing-along version! ;-)

(sorry for the terribly fun pun)

Well, I never saw the original but this seems creepy enough. Great dubbing.

I think this might be the original version...

I made a sing along version for this particular "Remix" (by Brett Lee) using subtitles, ala Trololo Sing Along.

Enjoy! Or don't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8v4oeNjKoiE

Ummmmm. So totally strange that I lack words to describe it.

The original is so much funnier..

Then, in the saga of the Russian singer, this developed,


At first I thought, "Neat! He's taking a page out of the Ze Frank collaborative interwebs playbook," but he isn't really confident about whether or not the people's reaction videos are in support or mockery. I kinda feel bad for the guy... then again, he tried to make me thing he was singing "Ah- ahhh" when his mouth was saying, "ee."

It's like he's doing a magic show for a bunch of people who are already on opiates..

You know, I think more creepy... not less.

Posted by: Britt at March 17, 2010 10:45 AM

This is arguably funnier than the original. I'm pissing myself right now.
