Thank God for the internet.

Seriously, what the fuck.

He is dressed like Joey Jeremiah

We all need to agree on something to request for him to sing.

Something he can sing in key..
sparklefatty - 2007-10-25
Let's see if he can do the Nickleback song.

baleen - 2007-07-19

of all the sounds a human can create, why did he choose this sound to be his hallmark? the way he sings it's like he's squeezing out something that isn't supposed to be there.

I'll go with a FUCK YOU 4CHAN here
lolcoolj - 2007-07-19
My lord those people are relentlessly annoying.

zatojones - 2007-07-19
Well he really needed to sing this song

Actually like this better than the original.

....not that that's sayin' a hell of a lot, but still...

Also the little what-do-I-do-now pauses during the vocal breaks are pretty good.
kthorjensen - 2007-07-19
He looks like he's about to cry at times.
yoyo1 - 2007-07-19
Wow this guy out-4Chans 4chan.
Too bad he doesn't dance as the original (although he does move away from the mic to breath in).

Awaiting a cover of Bel-air

Five stars having the face of a 13-year-old Janet Jackson and the voice I imagine Smoove B has.

This kid is wonderful on just about every level.

I should be able to find this guy's CD in every store in the world. Music or otherwise.
Aubrey McFate - 2007-07-19
I like the dude's sound, but I can't look directly at him for longer than ten seconds.

He's such a nice guy, though. The internet needs more of him.
Cap'n Profan!ty - 2008-06-09
He's got a great sense of humor about himself. That's pretty awesome. Also: Lizard, how do you KNOW Don LaFontaine doesn't have to deal with 4chan busting down his front door? Do you think he'd tell us? I cannot imagine anything less likely than Don LaFontaine narrating Goatse.

Can somebody explain all this 4chan shit to me? Because this guy seems awesome and that site is not.
tamago - 2007-07-28
In this case it refers to Rickrolling, which is telling somebody you have a link to an awesome video on YouTube, then sending them to the original "Never Gonna Give You Up" video. One version even started out with a young girl stripping, then went to the video. It had a Mudkips screensaver playing over it. Also, going back even further: Rickroll was originally Duckroll, where a link within a post in 4Chan would lead to a picture of a duck with wheels and the caption "Duckroll'd." This was later wordfiltered to Eggtape.

bopeton - 2007-07-29
tamago, what? That explains nothing.

tamago - 2007-07-30
Sorry, it's the best I can do. :(

tamago - 2007-07-30
Meh, basically 4Chan became obsessed with the song "Never Gonna Give You Up" to ridiculous degrees. There, that's the best I'm gonna be able to explain it.

Aubrey McFate - 2007-07-30
Wow, tamago. Way to explain everything except how it relates to this video.

4channers are the ones who spammed his videos with requests to cover this song, mainly because he sounds like Rick Astley and people from that website all share the same butter-fueled hivemind when it comes to humor. Also, they filled his videos with racist jokes (because those are high-larious) and generally acted like dicks.

So there.

tamago - 2007-08-10
Doesn't your video description pretty much explain that though anyway?

Aubrey McFate - 2007-08-16
Yeah, but I left out the 4chan part of it. Didn't really want to mention the fuckers.

Anyways, HE WAS ON JIMMY KIMMELL. I very much want to buy this man's album.

NineEleven - 2007-10-23
this kid sucks ass
Vicious - 2007-11-20
Shame on you.

oogaBooga - 2008-07-26
No he really does suck ass. NineEleven misses the point of the rating system, however.

Bravely rated and reviewed, ryanowens.
Cinnamon Imperialist - 2008-04-14
Stop it. That's annoying.

Cap'n Profan!ty - 2008-01-31
When I'm not looking at him, he sounds like a more "in tune" version of Seth Macfarlane's "Cleveland" from "Family Guy."
Tuan Jim - 2008-07-04
Yes. That's exactly what I thought.

I wonder if the guy who does Cleveland's voice looks like a child as well?

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-06-03
Someone needs to tell Tay that he should stop Fucking Around With That Internet Fame Shit. He could do better, fuck, at the very least he could be a voice actor with one style, and still get paid without the humiliation of faceless dickheads jerking him around, all pestering him like he was the internet's personal Barry White. Don LaFontaine doesn't have to deal with 4chan busting down his e-front door.
kingofthenothing - 2009-02-26
He looks a lot like Michael Jackson but he sounds like a cross between Yoda and Dr. Hawking, but in a good way.
